Louisiana Immunization Network for Kids

Question asked on November 27, 2005 5:14 PM :: :: Comments (0) :: TrackBacks (0)

Over the years, state and federal officials have started requiring parents to immunize their children against many different childhood diseases. Some of these immunizations require multiple doses spread over time and are increasingly required before a child can enter school.

Since 2001, the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals has maintained what is called the Louisiana Immunization Network for Kids (LINK). This is a state-wide computer database that maintains the immunization records for children that have been entered into the system. All children that have been immunized through a Public Health Unit have been entered into their database and private doctors have also been encouraged to enter their patients.

To find out if your child has been entered into the LINK program and/or to get a copy of your child's records, you can visit any Louisiana Public Health Unit.

To find the Public Health Unit closest to you, visit the Office of Public Health's website.

You can also try contacting the Immunization Program by telephone: (504) 483-1900.
