Find Your Vaccination Record
Your vaccination record (sometimes called your immunization record) provides a history of all the vaccines you received as a child and adult.
This record may be required for certain jobs, travel abroad, or school registration.
Many states have immunization information systems (IIS) or databases that you can access online. Visit the CDC IIS Records to find contacts for your state.
Here are a few immunization registries for neighboring states:
Find your immunization records with the Minnesota Department of Health MIIC Record Request.
You can also have easy access to your immunization records with the Docket app. This app will set reminders for upcoming vaccinations such as flu shots and COVID-19 vaccines. Contact Health Services
