Parents, do you need to print your child’s official immunization record quickly for school, sports teams or other activities? Ochsner is pleased to introduce a new process that allows parents to access their children’s official immunization records online. No more calling the doctor’s office or hunting around the house for records; it’s online, whenever you need it – 24/7.
To access immunization records, parents can register at MyIR.net, view immunization records, view reminders for future immunizations, and print up-to-date, official immunization records. This is a free service.
MyIR registration matches personal information with information that is on file with the Louisiana Immunization Network for Kids (LINKS), managed by the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals.
In an effort to inform Ochsner patients of the MyIR website, Ochsner has added the MyIR link on “My Chart” and on the after-visit summaries for well-child visits.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended that a routine vaccination schedule be followed for children and adolescents aged 18 years or younger. This schedule has been reviewed and approved by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists as well as the Advisory Committee in Immunization Practices.
Routine childhood wellness visits are scheduled according to age:
• 2 months
• 4 months
• 6 months
• 12-15 months
• 4-6 years
• 11-12 years
• 16-18 years
Important childhood vaccinations through the years include the following:
• Hepatitis A and B
• Diphtheria, tetanus and acellular pertussis Haemophilus influenza type b (Hib)
• Pneumococcal conjugate
• Inactivated poliovirus
• Measles, mumps, rubella (MMR)
