How to Get Involved

Health care providers that administer vaccines to people of all ages can join CAIR and promote its use to their colleagues.

Health staff of public school districts, private and charter schools as well as institutions of higher learning can also join the registry in order to document and track immunizations needed for school entry.

Child care providers can join the registry since they also must check immunization records for state entry requirements.

Representatives of parent advocacy and professional health care associations in California can participate on the CIC Registry Workgroup to assist in outreach and promotion of CAIR.
