1. How can I obtain my/my child’s immunization record? 

  • Check with your doctor or public health clinic.
  • Check with your school.
  • Call the CT Department of Public Health Immunization Program at (860) 509-7929. With proper identification, you can receive a free copy of your/your child’s immunization record.

Additional tips on locating old immunization records:

If you were vaccinated in another state:

2. What are the benefits of CT WiZ for parents and children?
Research has shown that both parents and doctors overestimate the rates at which children are fully immunized. Parents are often unaware of immunization schedule recommendations and doctors often overlook 1-2 immunizations. This is becoming an increasing problem with the rapid changes in immunization recommendations for children.

CT WiZ can:

  • Give providers easy access to a permanent record of your child’s shots even if you move away from Connecticut or your baby’s doctor retires.
  • Let a doctor find your child’s history in a computerized database if you forget the record or have difficulty obtaining it.
  • Give parents the official immunization records needed for daycare, school or camp.

3. Is my child enrolled in CT WiZ?
If your child was born in the state of Connecticut since January 1, 1998, he/she was enrolled at time of birth through birth certificate information. Parents may elect not to have their child enrolled by sending a signed written request to opt out of CT WiZ. Please include your child's full name and date of birth. By opting out, your child's shot record will no longer be available in CT WiZ. DPH will not be able to provide you with a record of your child’s vaccinations.
