Immunization Certificates

The Immunization Registry is currently undergoing system improvements. As a result, the Web portal is unavailable until further notice.

During this service interruption, providers are asked to print immunization certificates from electronic medical record systems or hand-write immunization certificates using the immunization history in a patient’s charts. Use the links below to print blank immunization certificates.

Kentucky EHR Incentive Program participants are not affected by the Immunization Registry Web portal issues. Meaningful use requirements will continue to be met by submitting immunization data through the Kentucky Health Information Exchange.

We apologize for the inconvenience and will keep you updated on any changes. Please contact the Kentucky Immunization Program with questions or concerns by calling (502) 564-4478.
