Mass. Rolling Out Registry to Track Who Got Which Vaccines


By: Goldberg, Carey


Massachusetts plans to roll out soon a statewide vaccination registry. The database, called the Massachusetts Immunization Information System, will keep track of which vaccines patients have received. Under the law that created the registry, doctors are required to inform patients when they start sharing vaccine information with the state, and patients will be able to limit sharing or opt out.
