The North Carolina Immunization Registry (NCIR) is a secure, web-based clinical tool which is the official source for North Carolina immunization information. The NCIR takes the place of outdated handwritten charting of immunizations administered in the state. Immunization providers may access all recorded immunizations administered in North Carolina, regardless of where the immunizations were given.

Access to NCIR via the North Carolina Identity Management (NCID) system is open to Vaccines for Children (VFC) medical providers and non-VFC providers and affiliates, pending a formal review and approval process to gain access to NCIR. Access to the immunization information contained within NCIR is meant for health care providers in the prevention and control of vaccine preventable diseases and is not intended for general public use.

The primary purposes of the NCIR are:

  • To give patients, parents, health care providers, schools and child care facilities timely access to complete, accurate and relevant immunization data;
  • To assist in the evaluation of a child's immunization status and identify children who need (or are past due for) immunizations;
  • To assist communities in assessing their immunization coverage and identifying areas of under-immunization; and
  • To fulfill federal and state immunization reporting needs.

More information on Immunization Information Systems (IIS) can be found on the CDC’s IIS webpage.

The NCIR stores immunization records that are client-specific and created by the client's health care provider or through our data feed with NC Vital Records. If you find there is an error in your child's or client's NCIR record, please contact your health care provider or Vital Records directly. The Immunization Branch cannot alter those records because we cannot confirm the identity of the client and do not provide treatment to clients in the NCIR.
