    Your patients have a lifetime of vaccines ahead of them. The easiest way to keep them organized is ImmTrac2, the Texas Immunization Registry. The Texas Department of State Health Services provides this registry. It is secure and confidential, and safely consolidates and stores Texans’ immunization records in one place.

    ImmTrac2 replaces the ImmTrac system launched in 1996, and now offers expanded capabilities including immunization history, forecasts, reminders, instant reports, easy edit/delete functions, and resettable passwords.

    With more than 164 million vaccine records, the registry is a major component of DSHS’s initiative to increase immunization coverage across Texas.
