The Minnesota Immunization Information Connection (MIIC) is Minnesota's statewide immunization registry and ImmuLink is Hennepin County's part of it. Immunization registries are confidential databases that contain information about immunizations.
Typically, immunization information about a newborn child is entered into a local or state registry at birth or at its first well-baby check-up. Registries work hard to include all children in a community so that families, schools and clinics have complete immunization records whenever they need them. Registries also track adult immunizations so adults are protected from diseases such as tetanus, influenza (flu), and pneumonia.
Only entities covered by the Minnesota Immunization Data Sharing Law (Minnesota Statutes, Chapter 144.3351) can view immunization data in MIIC. This includes, but is not limited to: physicians, nurses, social workers, pharmacists, school nurses, child care facilities, boards of health, community action agencies, and the commissioner of health. Users must be providing immunization services on behalf of the patient. All organizations requesting access to MIIC sign a security and confidentiality agreement.
Sites or individuals that do not have access to MIIC may request MIIC records by calling Hennepin County Immunization Services at (612) 348-2741.
Members of the public may "opt out" of MIIC, by completing and returning the Opt Out form. If you have questions about this process, or the implications of removing yourself from this system, please contact Hennepin County Immunization Services at 612-348-2741.
