When you receive an immunization in Georgia, your healthcare provider enters that information into the Georgia Registry of Immunization Transactions and Services, or GRITS.
If a child or adult has received an immunization since 2002 when the registry began, there is a good possibility that a record exists in the GRITS database. Your local health department has access to the GRITS database, and you can contact a clinic near you to get a copy of your record.
If you would like to contact administrators of the GRITS database directly, you may send your immunization record request in writing by mail, email, or fax. You must include the required information listed below, or they cannot proceed with a search within the GRITS database.
Once a search is conducted, generally three to five working days from the time the complete request is received, GRITS will respond back to you with the results of the findings, at no cost.
Please provide email address, fax number, or mail to address, including the 4-digit zip code extension to receive the records. This information is not forwarded to third parties.
Any omission of requested information may result in a delay in processing.
