Where to Get a Copy of My Child's Immunization Record

You may request copies of any vaccines given here from the Health Department.
For vaccines given elsewhere, contact the health care provider that gave the vaccines.
Many health care practices including the Whatcom County Health Department participate in the Washington State Immunization Registry. The Registry, however, may not show all vaccines given.  You can sign up at MyIR to create an account and review your vaccine records.
