What's new

  • Documenting Dose Level Eligibility in MIIC
    Clinics can now submit eligibility status for children and insurance status for adults at the vaccine dose-level to MIIC. The Minnesota Vaccines for Children Program (MnVFC) refers to this as dose-level eligibility.

  • Providers who submit batch data to MIIC can submit a comment file along with the client and immunization file indicating history of varicella (chickenpox). Starting on September 1, 2010, a physician’s signature is required to document history of varicella disease for the School Immunization Law.

  • A new comment code for refusal of the second dose of the H1N1 influenza vaccine was added on 3/29/10
