Vaccine Safety Reporting

The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) is a national vaccine safety surveillance program co-sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). VAERS provides a nationwide mechanism by which adverse events following immunization may be reported, analyzed, and made available to the public. VAERS also provides a vehicle for disseminating vaccine safety-related information to parents and guardians, health care providers, vaccine manufacturers, state vaccine programs, and other constituencies.

Obtaining Copies of Immunization Records

Parents who need to obtain a copy of their child's immunization records should contact their provider's office or their local County Health Department. If they are unable to obtain a copy of the record from these locations, parents can also pick up copies from the Arizona Department of Health Services, Immunization Program Office located at 150 N. 18th Avenue, Suite 120 Phoenix, AZ 85007. Parents should fill out the immunization records request form and fax or email the form along with proper identification to fax 602-364-3285 or email and identify where they would like the immunization record to be sent.
