Immunization Unit

The DSHS Immunization Unit aims to eliminate the spread of vaccine-preventable diseases by increasing vaccine coverage for Texans, raising awareness of the diseases that vaccines prevent and educating the public about vaccine safety. We do this through the administration of the Texas Immunization Registry (ImmTrac2), which provides access to immunization records, the establishment of school immunization rules, and the administration of the Texas Vaccines for Children and Adult Safety Net programs, which provide low-cost vaccines to eligible children and adults.
