Documentation of all previous vaccinations must be presented upon the initial visit. These can most often be obtained from previous healthcare providers, school records (dependent upon child’s age) or the New Jersey Immunization Information System (a shared website for healthcare providers to document immunizations). An immunization history is needed in order to determine what vaccines are needed at time of visit.
Proof of immunization(s) given by the Health Department will be provided at the time of visit. The Gloucester County Department of Health is a participant of the NJIIS; all immunizations given are updated in the NJ database where it can be easily accessed by other healthcare providers when needed.
