Are your Immunizations Updated?

Nurse Sykes has begun contacting families to ask for up to date immunization records, printed by providers, and signed by parents. If you receive such a letter, please contact your child’s health care provider for vaccines or exemption, sign it , and return to school nurse. The ability of our whole school to avoid outbreaks of preventable communicable disease depends on your action. In addition, the health and safety of immune-compromised students to avoid hospitalization and possible death may depend on other students remaining healthy. This year Washington requires Provider verification, not only Parent report. Please help me to bring our school’s ‘Herd Immunity’ to a positive level, which is 95%. Thank you.

Option 1: Sign up for MyIR to View, Download, and Print Your Family’s Immunization Information MyIR allows you to manage your family’s immunization records securely online. Once you register, you can access the records any time you need them. You can also print your child’s Certificate of Immunization Status (PDF) for school and child care entry. You can do all of this without an extra trip to your healthcare provider or school.

Step 1: Go to https://wa.myir.net/register to begin the signup process. If you choose the Auto Match option and the system finds an exact match, MyIR will send you a verification code by either text or phone call. If an exact match is not found, MyIR will direct you to Step 2.
