Find My Immunization Record

The Minnesota Immunization Information Connection (MIIC) combines a person's immunizations into a single record, even if they were given by different health care providers in the state.

Your family's immunization records refers to records for a person you are the parent/guardian of. You cannot request a record for your spouse/partner.

MDH cannot provide a replacement CDC COVID-19 vaccine card. If you lost your COVID-19 vaccine card, you can request a copy of your immunization record, which includes similar information to the vaccine card, by using the Docket app or submitting a request to MIIC. Refer to the instructions below for more on each option.

Access your family's immunization records

Easily access your or your family's immunization records through the Docket app. Docket gives Minnesotans with a MIIC record a digital option to securely access their immunization history in MIIC. With Docket, users can:

  • See their immunization history from MIIC
  • Check what vaccines they or their family may be due for
  • See what vaccines they may need in the future
  • Share immunization records for health, school, travel, and other purposes

To get started, download the free app by searching "Docket" on the Apple App Store or Google Play. Or, go to Docket to download the app.

Each Docket account is specific to one person and linked to their immunization record only.

If you have questions about the Docket app (e.g., downloading, finding it in the app store, logging in, etc.) please reach out to Docket or on Twitter @dockethealthapp. Docket also has an Immunization FAQ document at the bottom of their webpage. You may also reach out to your mobile phone provider for technical assistance.

Using Docket is optional. Other ways to find immunizations records are listed below.

If you were not able to access your or your family’s immunization records through the Docket app, it may be because multiple MIIC records or no MIIC record exists for the information you entered.

  • Complete a MIIC Immunization Record Update Request. MDH staff will review the form and update the contact information in the MIIC immunization record. If staff are unable to find a MIIC record, they will contact you. Requests will be processed in the order they are received.

After your MIIC record is updated, delete your existing immunization search history tries. Then retry your search in Docket by selecting the plus (+) sign on the "Immunization Search History" screen. If this still does not work, contact Docket.

If you cannot access your or your family's immunization records through the Docket app, it may be because of incorrect information in MIIC (spelling, other names, old records, missing phone number or email, etc.). You can:

  • Contact your health care provider to update contact information in your MIIC immunization record.
  • Complete a MIIC Immunization Record Update Request. MDH staff will review the form and update the contact information in the MIIC immunization record. If staff are unable to find a MIIC record, they will contact you. Requests will be processed in the order they are received.

After your MIIC record is updated, delete your existing immunization search history tries. Then retry your search in Docket by selecting the plus (+) sign on the "Immunization Search History" screen. If this still does not work, contact Docket.

To request your personal MIIC record, or the record of a person who you are the parent/guardian of, complete a MIIC Immunization Record Request. Requests will be processed in the order they are received. Due to a high volume of requests, if you need a copy of your immunization record within the next 33 business days please contact your health care provider.

A parent or legal guardian can request records for children under the age of 18 years. People over the age of 18 years old must request their own record. You cannot request a record for your spouse/partner.

We do not collect social security numbers. Requesters should not provide this information. Find more on data privacy and how immunization records get into MIIC at Data Privacy and MIIC Records.

Note: MIIC covers all ages but is more likely to contain complete immunization records for children than adults. Also, although most health care facilities submit immunization information to MIIC, not all facilities do.

  • If you need assistance in another language, are unable to complete an online request, or are an out of state provider, please call the MIIC Record Request line at 651-201-3980.
  • If you have questions about record requests, please email Health.immrecords@state.mn.us.
  • If you submitted the wrong information or forgot to include information when completing an online request form, please call 651-201-3980.

Docket/MIIC is incorrect or can't find my record

  • MIIC was created in 2002. Many adults do not have their childhood vaccine records in MIIC because of this.
  • If you have lived in another state besides Minnesota before 2002, that information may not be available in MIIC. Immunization information is not automatically transferred from one state to another when you move. Please refer to CDC: Contacts for Immunization Records to locate immunization records from other states.

Updating your MIIC record

If your MIIC record is missing immunizations that you received and you have the information, you can send MDH a copy of your record to health.immrecords@state.mn.us or fax a copy of your record to 1-877-771-6182. Or you can ask the clinic where you received the immunizations if they can send MDH your immunization history.

If you find information that is not in MIIC, have the IIS send it to us if possible. If you were immunized outside of the U.S., have an official copy of the immunization record, and would like the immunizations entered into MIIC, please fax the record to 1-877-771-6182 with "ATTN: MIIC Students."

Because many adults do not have their childhood records in MIIC, Docket may indicate that you are overdue for a dose of Tdap, MMR, Hepatitis B, Varicella (chickenpox), or Hepatitis A vaccine when you are not.

Please note:

  • Tdap is the vaccine that protects against tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis in adolescents and adults. DTaP is the version for children.
  • If people don't receive the full DTaP series of vaccines in childhood, a multi-shot series of Tdap is recommended.
  • Therefore, Docket may recommend a multi-shot series of Tdap if there is no, or incomplete, childhood DTaP series on record that may be different from the adult Tdap recommendation.

For clinical advice on which immunizations you should or shouldn't get, you should talk to a health care provider.

  • Facilities where immunizations 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 immunization information systems (IIS); there is no national IIS. If you or your child received immunizations in other states, refer to a list of state and local registries at CDC: Contacts for Immunization Records.

Note: Finding an adult's complete immunization history is often difficult. Organizations maintain records for limited period of time. If the organization does not send the immunization information to MIIC during that time we may not have record of it.

If your provider searched MIIC for your record and could not find one, or the record is missing immunizations, it is unlikely that we will be able to find additional information.

If you have gone through the green card/I-693 process, please also reach out directly to the civil surgeon.

If you arrived into a state other than Minnesota, please contact your provider from that state and/or your state's IIS contact, which you can find at CDC: Contacts for Immunization Records.

If you are not able to find previous immunization records, you may want to contact your current health care provider for additional recommendations, including re-immunization.

If you entered the US and moved directly to Minnesota, your immunization record may be in MIIC. Please complete a MIIC Immunization Record Request. If you entered the U.S. as a refugee and did not move directly to Minnesota, please refer to CDC: Contacts for Immunization Records.

More about MIIC records

Most providers send MIIC information within 24 hours. We recommend asking your provider when they will send your information to MIIC. Immunizations sent to the MIIC team to update will be entered within a week.
