In California, vaccines will soon need to be registered with a state registry by the providers who supply them.
To help in efforts to examine health disparities, race and ethnicity will also be needed for each entry, the California Medical Association announced in a news release on December 13.
Physicians who have not yet registered with the registry are asked to do so right away.
The requirement for providers will start from Jan. 1, 2023.
Visit the CAIR website to learn more about the organization or to begin the application process. (Providers must sign up for RIDE/Healthy Futures if they are located in the counties of Alpine, Amador, Calaveras, Mariposa, Merced, San Joaquin, Stanislaus, or Tuolumne.)
If you have any queries or want to find out if your practice is already a member of CAIR, get in touch with the CAIR Help Desk ([email protected] or 800-578-7889) or your local CAIR representative.
Visit the Immunization Registry FAQs of the California Department of Public Health for further details.
