MRH participates in the Colorado Immunization Information System (CIIS). If you are hospitalized or receive services at the Montrose Regional Health and receive immunizations, your/your child’s shot information is entered automatically into this confidential, secure, statewide immunization registry. You may choose to exclude your/your child’s shot information from CIIS at any time. CIIS helps healthcare providers, schools, childcare centers, and individuals keep track of the shots that they and/or their children have received. Please ask during the admissions process for further information. The CIIS website provides answers to Frequently Asked Questions regarding the registry and instructions on how to opt-out of the program.
