Statewide Immunization Information System (NMSIIS)

The New Mexico Statewide Immunization Information System (NMSIIS) is a computerized Internet database application that was developed to record and track immunization dates of New Mexico State's children and adults, providing assistance for keeping everyone on track for their recommended immunizations.

Each year, approximately 28,000 children are born in New Mexico. Every one of these children will need 18-22 immunizations by age six to protect them from debilitating, life threatening diseases. New vaccines are quickly becoming available, resulting in a complex childhood immunization schedule for a large population. Keeping track of immunizations can be challenging for health care professionals.

Keeping track of families is another challenge for health care professionals. The average family relocates multiple times over the course of a lifetime, frequently leaving medical records and valuable immunization information behind. As many as 25% of children visit two or more providers for immunizations before their third birthday.

In response to these challenges, New Mexico utilizes the New Mexico Statewide Immunization Information System (NMSIIS) as a statewide registry that tracks and records immunizations, generates immunization history and recommendations, and maintains detailed patients records throughout the state. NMSIIS is a confidential and secure computer database designed to collect and maintain vaccination records of children and adults. Utilization of the IIS promotes cost effective and efficient disease prevention, which leads to better health for New Mexicans.
