  • Documenting Vaccination

Under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), we are unsure if we can share immunization information on our pediatric patients with staff in schools or daycare facilities.

Healthcare providers (or other covered entities) may share immunization information with schools or daycare facilities, without authorization, if permitted or required by state law. These state laws would not be preempted by the HIPAA Privacy Rule [45 CFR 160.203(c)].
