Get Immunization Records Online

The Mississippi State Department of Health issued the following statement. 


In an effort to ease the stress on parents during back-to-school preparation, the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) now offers a convenient way for parents to check their child’s immunizations record online and print out the required Certificate of Immunization Compliance (Form 121) for school registration. 

 
MyIR Mobile is an internet-based portal that gives consumers access to their official state immunization records based on information housed in the Mississippi Immunization Information eXchange (MIIX). 
 
MyIR Mobile allows users to not only see their own immunization records, but to also add family members to their profiles in order to see if their child is up-to-date or needs their next vaccination. If none are needed, a certified Form 121 can be downloaded and printed. 
 
“Prior to this service, parents had to get the Form 121 from their pediatrician or healthcare provider. This always caused a huge rush in the weeks leading up to the beginning of a new school year,” said MSDH Director of Immunization Jennifer Fulcher. “This program will save time and save a trip to the doctor’s office or county health department.” 
 
MyIR Mobile requires identity verification through a phone number or email address to keep records safe and secure. Only immunization records of Mississippi residents are accessible through this program. Mississippi is the first state nationwide that currently uses MyIR Mobile. 
 
Mississippi state law requires children to be immunized against childhood diseases to enter public or private school, Head Start or daycare. There is also a vaccination requirement for 7th grade entry. 
 
MyIR Mobile is available at www.MyIRMobile.com.  
 
Immunizations are available at county health departments by appointment.

Should have been done a decade ago and no f'ing reason why it couldn't have been.

Let's hope the website containing these records is secure from hackers, but my cynical side says that it isn't.

Dear Sam: why, pray tell, do your immunization records need to be a state secret?

@10:02
Because it is none of your damn business. And if you are too simple to understand the concept of parallel construction or other methods that adversaries can use to piece together profiles on citizens through publicly accessible data, then you are ignorant and should really read a book or something.

10:02, would you be concerned if your prescription for Valtrex was hacked and leaked to the members of your church?

State information systems have a piss-poor record of security and DLP efforts, and the attack surface expands exponentially with the introduction of an app.

Good luck!

@11:03 - God forbid someone knows I'm being treated for chickenpox. Adjust your tinfoil, sheeple.

Cynical Sam said...

@10:57 & @ 11:03, thanks. Some people "get it." The records include more than the vaccine used, but also birthdates, addresses, parents names, and more. In addition, that is HIPAA protected information, as it should be. This information when leaked become part of the identity theft package.

9:29 - a decade ago?

Let's check your social media account (can't do it with your anonymous name) to see if you have been screaming about government spending, tax rates, bureaucracy, etc.

In Mississippi, as in 49 other states, and the federal government, the IT systems are generally decades behind what the private sector has available. In order to provide this kind of service it needed more than just IT, it also needed broad internet usage, which had just begun a decade ago.
And there is a f'ing reason - its called money. The DOH is not bleeding excess dollars in its budget every year, and a decade ago (following the financial crash) their budgets were being cut along with all other state budgets.

But, this is a government "service" -- and as such, in some folks minds, that doesn't cost anything. If you live in that world, then I guess there is no f'ing reason.

And the clown Sam is back after a several month hiatus. I’m guessing a mandatory vacation at Whitfield?

The Site Sucks. Finally was able to access one of my children's records and it had the last 7 years of shots Past Due. It only links the records through your birthdate and phone numbers. Tried every phone number we had for the other kid... nothing. So stupid. Should be through your social.

Still calling my doctor for the 121. Another Dept of Health fail. Prepare for liberal to blame Tate in 1...2...3...

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
