Requesting a South Dakota Immunization Record
1) Check first with the doctor, Child & Family Services or Public Health Alliance office where the immunization was given. Current records for most preschoolers should be available from these sites. Limited records for older children and adults may also be available if the immunizations were given recently.
2) Contact the South Dakota Department of Health, Immunization Program, by phone at 1-800-592-1861 (in SD only) or email. The department maintains microfilm files of immunization records required for school entry (both kindergarten entry and transfer into a school system) from the 1976-1977 school year through the present. In order for the department to locate the correct record you must provide:
- name on the record
- date of birth
- year individual entered kindergarten (or transferred into a school system)
- school name
There is no charge to copy the record, which can be either mailed or faxed.
