RELEASE: Based on recent data showing a significant decrease in pediatric vaccination rates after the COVID-19 national emergency was declared, the Maryland Department of Health (MDH) is encouraging parents to bring their children’s vaccinations up-to-date.

“There is no vaccine yet to prevent COVID-19, but there are vaccines to prevent other serious illnesses," said MDH Secretary Robert R. Neall.

In Maryland, parents can view their children’s official vaccination records online via MD.MyIR.net, a free online portal where users can access official copies of their records and those of their family members.
