Find My Immunization Record
Immunization records are important for you and your family. They help make sure you and your family get the right vaccines at the right time. They also help meet child care, school, travel, and other immunization requirements.
The Minnesota Immunization Information Connection (MIIC) is an immunization information system (IIS) that combines a person's immunizations into a single record, even if they were given by different health care providers in the state. This page includes how to request your or your child's MIIC immunization record and other tips for finding immunization records.
How can I request my or my child's MIIC immunization record?
Note: MIIC covers all ages but is more likely to contain complete immunization records for children than adults. Also, although MIIC participation by health care facilities is high and continues to increase, not all facilities and providers participate.
Where else can I look for records?
- Facilities where vaccines were given, such as your primary care clinic, neighborhood clinics and local public health departments, may have immunization records.
- Family records, such as baby books, may have immunization information.
- Schools and/or child care providers, which must verify immunizations of enrollees, may be able to look up records.
- Military records may be a source of immunization information for those who have served in the military.
- Other state IISs. If you or your child received vaccines in other states, see a list of state and local registries on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website at IIS State/Territory/City Registry Staff - Main & Technical Contacts.
Note: Finding an adult's complete vaccination history is often difficult. Clinics, schools, and child cares maintain records for a limited period of time, and few IISs existed before the mid-1990s. While IISs are currently more likely to have complete records for young people, they will have complete records for people of all ages in the future.
What if I cannot find my or my child's records?
If you cannot find records, it may be necessary to repeat some vaccines or arrange for blood tests to determine protection from diseases. Talk with your or your child's health care provider to decide the appropriate course of action.
