STC Proud to Launch “Direct to Consumer” Immunization Record Access in Maryland
MyIR.net™ is a secure and free online portal where consumers can sign up to get access to their entire families’ immunization history.
Phoenix, AZ (PRUnderground) September 25th, 2019
Previously, Maryland residents could only get a copy of their records through a physician’s office or The MD Department of Health, but not anymore! Thanks to MyIR™, launched earlier this month, users can complete a one-time registration and identity verification process and then be granted access to view and print their official state records.
MyIR™ printed records, also available in Washington, Louisiana, Arizona and West Virginia, have the state seal and therefore are generally accepted by schools, daycare facilities, camps, employers, state agencies and other organizations that require proof of immunizations.
“During the height of the Washington state Measles scare in January of this year, we saw a 476% increase in consumers signing up for MyIR™ to check if their families were at risk or protected by the MMR vaccine,” said Michelle Bonjour, Director of Consumer Engagement at STC. “MyIR™ really empowers parents to take charge of their families’ health and we are excited to have another state onboard.”
MyIR™ printed records, also available in Washington, Louisiana, Arizona and West Virginia, have the state seal and therefore are generally accepted by schools, daycare facilities, camps, employers, state agencies and other organizations that require proof of immunizations. The system is HIPAA-compliant and records are only available to authorized users.
