The goal of the MIIS is to give health care providers and families a tool to help ensure that all individuals are immunized based on the latest recommendations. The MIIS will establish a complete, accurate, secure, real-time immunization record for residents of Massachusetts of all ages.

An immunization registry provides numerous benefits to all those involved in the health care of children and adults, contributing to a higher immunization rate and a healthier population.

  • Providers have access to more complete immunization records of their patients and receive clinical decision support in accordance with an increasingly complex vaccination schedule.
  • Individuals, parents and caregivers get reminders when an immunization has been missed. Up-to-date information on a person's vaccination history helps to prevent over-immunization.
  • Schools will be able to save time in complying with immunization requirements.
  • Public health systems will use the information to help monitor and control vaccine preventable diseases.
