The North Carolina Immunization Registry (NCIR)


The North Carolina Immunization Registry external link (NCIR) is a secure, web-based clinical tool which is the official source for North Carolina immunization information. The NCIR takes the place of outdated handwritten charting of immunizations administered in the state. Immunization providers may access all recorded immunizations administered in North Carolina, regardless of where the immunizations were given.

The primary purposes of the NCIR are:

  • To give patients, parents, health care providers, schools and child care facilities timely access to complete, accurate and relevant immunization data;
  • To assist in the evaluation of a child's immunization status and identify children who need (or are past due for) immunizations;
  • To assist communities in assessing their immunization coverage and identifying areas of under-immunization; and
  • To fulfill federal and state immunization reporting needs.

More information on Immunization Information Systems (IIS) can be found on the CDC’s IIS webpage. external link
