NH Vaccination Registry
New Hampshire was the last hold out state to implement a state vaccination registry. The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services oversees this program referred to as “Immunization Registry” and New Hampshire Immunization Information System (NHIIS). The registry data includes administration and declining of vaccines. It will help providers track compliance and target gaps. Access is given to medical providers, schools, childcare centers, health departments and public health services.
He-P 307.06 “No patient’s immunization/vaccination information shall be entered into the registry without that patient, or the patient’s parent or guardian if the patient is a minor, being given the opportunity to opt-out of the registry.” Notification might be at point of service or posted publicly, but many have reported lack of notification.
To opt out, print and complete the Opt Out form. Provide a copy to all medical providers that may have your vaccine records. They are required to sign and submit. Healthcare providers need to sign it. If you want to see what information is already on file us the records request. If your information is already entered, use the withdrawal form.
Article 2-b to the New Hampshire Constitution “An individual’s right to live free from governmental intrusion in private or personal information is natural, essential, and inherent.” Contact your local legislators if you recognize how egregious and unconstitutional this is. Stop the government surveillance and overstep.
