Registries established in accordance with this Part shall provide for a method of informing the parent, guardian, or registrant when the registrant is due or is late for a recommended immunization and shall serve as a means for persons and institutions that either provide immunization services or are required to ensure that persons are immunized to receive prompt and accurate immunization information. Such persons and institutions shall include but not be limited to public health units, health care providers, schools, and day care centers.
