New Requirement to Submit Immunization Data to a California Registry

There is a new law that goes live January 1, 2023 that will require reporting all vaccinations provided by any provider to the state vaccine registry, CAIR2. Providers will need to join CAIR to become a reporter.  Prior to this date, reporting was only mandatory for the acute hospital and community pharmacies.  This reporting doesn't link with the NHSN (National Healthcare Safety Network) mandatory reporting for immunizations, so this requirement is in addition to that requirement.  For more information, see the CAIR2 website:   California Immunization Registry
