Picture of G. Scott Giebink This annual award is given in memory of G. Scott Giebink, M.D. (1944-2003). Dr. Giebink was an internationally-respected pediatric infectious disease expert and a great advocate for immunization. He also strongly believed in access to health care for all children and helped create MinnesotaCare, a state health insurance program for people with low incomes. The G. Scott Giebink Excellence in Immunization Award is given each year to a Minnesota organization that has provided leadership and/or innovation in immunization.

2016 Focus Area

The focus of the 2016 award is active and innovative participation in the Minnesota Immunization Information Connection (MIIC), Minnesota's immunization information system. Organizations that use MIIC features to increase and/or maintain high immunization rates in their client population, and/or use current technology to increase the quality and/or speed of data sent to MIIC, will be considered.


Any organization that participates in MIIC is eligible to be nominated for this award. It may be a public or private clinic, or a non-traditional site like a long-term care facility, school, child care center, or other organization.

Nominating Procedure

Nominations for 2016 are closed.
