Immunization Registry Settings

The Immunization Registry Settings are reported when the practice is registered with their state’s Immunization Registry and enrolled for IronBridge. Review the Immunization Registry FAQs for additional information.

For practices who are not registered with their state, document the patient's preference for record keeping or to be reported after registration with the state and enrollment for IronBridge is completed.
