What you need to know

The clinic or physician's office that administers immunizations keeps an immunization record on file for each person who receives an immunization at their facility.  

A personal copy is given to the parents. Every time you or your children visit your health care provider for immunizations, it is important to take your immunization record with you and have it updated.

The medical record contains the following immunization information:

  • Names of the vaccines received.
  • The manufacturer's name and lot number of the vaccine being administered.
  • The date the immunization was administered.
  • Who administered the vaccines.

Immunization Records

It is important for you to keep a record of all your immunizations for your family members and yourself. The immunization should be entered by name along with the date they were received, and the name of the clinic or doctor's office that gave them to you. This record gives health care providers the information they need so they can treat you appropriately in the future.

In 2008, the Nebraska State Immunization Information System (NESIIS) started a state-wide immunization database to maintain immunization records for individuals of all ages. To access this secure and confidential search engine and search for immunization records that have been entered by your provider, please click the following link: NESIIS
