Find Your Immunization Records With New Secure Docket App

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.

  • Easily access your, or your minor children’s, immunization records through the Docket app. Docket gives Minnesotans with a MIIC record a digital option to securely access their immunization history. Users can see their immunization history, check what vaccines they or their family may be due for, see what vaccines they may need in the future, and 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.  If you have questions, please reach out to Docket or on Twitter @dockethealthapp. Your mobile phone provider can also provide technical assistance.
  • 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.). Contact your health care provider to update contact information in your MIIC immunization record.

Boosters and additional doses

  • CDC recommends that people with certain immuno-compromising conditions get an additional dose of Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. Your third dose should be the same product and at least 28 days after your second dose.
  • There is currently not enough data to recommend that people who received the Johnson & Johnson vaccine get an additional dose. 
  • CDC does not recommend additional doses or booster shots for any other population at this time.
  • Talk to your health care provider about your medical condition and whether getting another dose is right for you

CORONAVIRUS

COVID-19, commonly referred to as the Novel Coronavirus, is a topic of concern around the world. The World Health Organization (WHO) and the United States have declared COVID-19 a public health emergency. The situation is being taken very seriously by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), Local Public Health (LPH) and Emergency Management (EM). However, the declaration is not an indication of alarm or fear but rather a time to stay informed. Below are credible, accurate sources for up to date information:
