How do I submit immunization data to the Philadelphia Kids Plus Immunization Information System?

The Pennsylvania Immunization Information System (PA-IIS) is available for all providers in the state of Pennsylvania to report immunization information.  There are two immunization registries in the state of Pennsylvania.  All providers located outside the city limits of Philadelphia should start the interface process with the state of Pennsylvania State-Wide Immunization Information System (PA-SIIS).  If the practice is located inside of Philadelphia city limits, they are referred to the Philadelphia KIDS Plus IIS.  

Providers who live in the Philadelphia area must submit immunization information to the Kids Plus Philadelphia Immunization Program, operated by the Philadelphia Department of Health.
