Provider Information

Collapse All Expand All

Immunization repositories are confidential, computerized systems that contain vaccination histories within a geographic area. They help ensure that children receive the recommended vaccinations at the recommended ages. People often will move from doctor to doctor throughout their lifetime and the paper trail may become disjointed and incomplete. Electronic repositories can help doctors check a patient's immunization history through a centralized database, without relying on the patient for a paper record. Every state has at least one regional or

local immunization repository
Bexar County residents and has been operated by Metro Health since 1980. It currently contains over 1.3 million client records from over 300 Bexar County providers (public clinics, private practices, hospitals, pharmacies and schools).
  • It’s a lifespan repository: patients records are updated throughout their lifetime; consolidates vaccination records from multiple providers.
  • It’s a local repository: the quality of the data in the repository is closely monitored by the SAIRS Team.
  • It’s easily accessible online: you can access your patient’s immunization record from any internet connection.
  • It allows you to enter your own patient’s vaccine data (direct entry) into SAIRS: which equals up-to-date records, quality control and less paper!
  • It is capable of electronic data exchange (HL7): your certified electronic health record (EHR) system sends your patients’ immunization data directly to SAIRS. The SAIRS Team will work directly with your EHR vendor to set up the connection and attest your facility for Meaningful Use. For more information on HL7 and Meaningful Use, visit .
  • It has a Mentor Program for easy transitioning: the SAIRS Provider Relations Team will work directly with you and your staff.
  • It has more up-to-date records: the more providers that transition to direct entry or HL7 reporting equals more up-to-date records in SAIRS and results in less wasted resources and less over-immunizing.
  • All SAIRS users must sign a User Security and Confidentiality Agreement and comply with the SAIRS Security and Confidentiality Policy.
  • All SAIRS users must use assigned login ID and personal password to gain repository access.
  • SAIRS information can be restricted based on the user.
  • Only organizations with a legitimate purpose for reviewing or updating immunization records enroll into SAIRS.
  • All facilities enrolled in SAIRS must renew their information (including active users) at least once a year.
