INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Hoosiers can begin tracking their vaccination records online.

Officials with the Indiana State Department of Health announced Monday that parents will be able to track records for their children online using the MyVaxIndiana website.

The online service is being paid for with a $150,000 federal grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

State Health Commissioner Gregory Larkin says the new service should make it easier for families to get the proper vaccinations. HHS official Judy Murphy says the tool will put more control in the hands of patients.

Hoosiers first have to get their personal identification numbers from their doctors before setting up an account. Once they have that they can find their vaccination history online.
