I saw a leaflet last time I went to my sons ped office about "maryland immunet". I did not think anything about it cuz I only saw one and the doctor never said anything about it. I looked it up today to find that his doctors office reports to them, and that I never had to sign anything saying they could give his records to them! Im so pissed!!! I found a form to "opt-out". The form says to fax it to the immunet people. Now does that mean I fax it, or the doctors office? Should I just fax it anyway then give the doctor a copy of the opt-out form? Im so upset over this, and this website does not offer any help on how to opt-out.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">:

When you filled out your child's birth certificate information at the hospital, your child was placed into the state immunization registry.<br><br><i><b>Q. Is parent consent required to share the record with ImmuNet?</b></i><br><br>
A. <span style="color:#FF0000;"><b>No.</b></span><br>
Senate Bill 626, the Coordination of Immunization Services Act of 2001, has mandated that Maryland’s ImmuNet is an opt-out system. This means that all immunization information can be entered into ImmuNet <b><span style="text-decoration:underline;">unless a parent refuses</span></b>. Should this happen, <b>a parent must complete the Data Sharing Refusal Form, return it to the ImmuNet staff</b> to make their child’s record inaccessable to ImmuNet authorized users.

Ok I know I should probably go over to mothering and do a search for I ask but here goes... What's immunet? and should I also be concerned? I live in the state of AL. Anyone have any heads up info. I should be reading on? We have chosen to delay all vaxes until 2 yrs. old. Just told dr. this till I can read all I can. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I know we will have to deal with waivers for school and all that good jazz but much later as the twins are are only 3 months old.
