RICAIR provides a lifelong immunization registry used for preventive care and control of vaccine preventable disease. RICAIR maintains all records of immunizations in one secure database, regardless of where the vaccine is administered.
Medical providers and pharmacies receiving vaccine supplied by the State of Rhode Island are required to participate in RICAIR by electronic data reporting (or by actively working toward establishing electronic reporting) . Only medical providers and authorized users have access to this confidential, secure database to help ensure that Rhode Islanders are protected against vaccine preventable diseases.
Individual patients do not need to take any action to be included in RICAIR. RICAIR records can be generated by medical providers when they are asked by patients to provide an immunization record for daycare, camps, schools and colleges, or employment. Patients or their parents/legal guardians can change the access to their immunization records in RICAIR at any time. Parental/guardian decisions are only valid until a child’s eighteenth birthday.
