Nugget 6: School Immunization Records: A covered entity may disclose proof of immunization to a school if state law requires the school to have such information prior to admitting the student, without getting a HIPAA-compliant authorization.  However, the parent or other responsible adult (or the child if he/she is emancipated or of age) must agree to the disclosure.  Agreement can be verbal, but either way, the covered entity must document the parent's agreement to the disclosure.
