The Minnesota Immunization Information Connection (MIIC) is Minnesota’s immunization information system that is managed by the Minnesota Department of Health. A person’s MIIC record combines all immunizations a person has received into a single record, even if they were given by different health care providers in Minnesota.
There are two way to access your or your child’s immunization record:
- Access immunization records through the Docket app
- Submit a request to MIIC
