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.
