Put Shots in MCIR

Thursday, October 8, 2020

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has a statewide goal of increasing flu vaccines by 33% this season

Keeping up-to-date immunization records in the Michigan Care Improvement Registry (MCIR) is crucial to track this effort. The Regional MCIR Team is available to assist physicians and providers with topics like How to Add an Immunization or How to Balance your Vaccine Inventory in MCIR. 

Physicians and providers who immunize children born after December 31, 1993 and less than 20 years of age must report all vaccines within 72 hours of administration. Entering adult immunizations is highly recommended to ensure a more accurate, robust registry. Visit www.mcir.org for a variety of resources on how to use MCIR and how to contact MCIR staff for trainings.
