Wisconsin Immunization Registry (WIR)

The Wisconsin Immunization Registry (WIR) is a computerized Internet database application that was developed to record and track immunization dates of Wisconsin children and adults. Immunization registries are seen as an integral tool for assuring that children and adults receive immunizations according to recommended schedules, and can prevent over-immunizing.

The Public Immunization Record Access feature allows individuals, parents, or legal guardians to look up their own or their child's immunization record in the Wisconsin Immunization Registry (WIR). Many people in Wisconsin receive immunizations from more than one provider. Without access to the immunization information, it can be difficult to know which vaccine you or your child needs at any particular time. Offering parents and guardians access to look up their child’s immunizations can decrease the number of patient requests to providers for immunization records.

Select one of the following three links. A screen will appear and prompt you to enter a first name, last name, birth date and unique identifier such as a Social Security number, Medicaid ID, or provider chart number. If your immunization provider is using the registry and used one of the listed unique identifiers, you will be able to access the record.
