NHIIS Information for School Nurses

Information on how school nurses can access the NHIIS System and available training opportunities.

NHIIS is a secure, web-based tool that provides school nurses with the following benefits:

  • NHIIS keeps a student’s consolidated history of immunizations received from multiple healthcare providers.
  • Saves parents time going to the doctor's office or clinic to obtain a copy of their children's immunization records because many schools can check immunization records online.
  • NHIIS can assess students’ immunization needs by recommending missed and future immunization.
  • School Nurses can create reminder/recall lists of student’s past-due for vaccines.
  • Helps school nurses to view exemptions, and run coverage reports.
  • NHIIS is available to school nurses at no cost.

NHIIS information is confidential and available only to authorized users, such as health care providers and schools, as defined by He-P 307 Immunization/Vaccination Registry.
