Pre- and Post- Adoption Immunization Records in TennIIS

The process for changing pre-adoption records to post-adoption records begins with submission of the adoption court order and the patient’s demographic information to the Vaccine-Preventable Diseases and Immunization Program (VPDIP) at the Tennessee Department of Health's Central Office.  These documents should be faxed to (615) 401-7659 with attention to TennIIS Patient Record Management.  

When the process is complete, the new post-adoption record will contain immunization dates that have been copied from the pre-adoption record.  The pre-adoption demographic information will be removed and access to the pre-adoption record will be permanently blocked.  

For questions or additional assistance please contact the TennIIS Help Desk at 800-342-1813.
