What is the Michigan Care Improvement Registry (MCIR)?


The Michigan Care Improvement Registry (MCIR) is an immunization database that documents immunizations given to Michiganders throughout life. The Michigan Care Improvement Registry (MCIR) was created in 1998 to collect reliable immunization information for children and make it accessible to authorized users. A 2006 change to the Michigan Public Health Code enabled the MCIR to transition from a childhood immunization registry to a lifespan registry including citizens of all ages in the MCIR.

MCIR benefits health care organizations, schools, licensed childcare programs, pharmacies and Michigan’s citizens by consolidating immunization information from multiple providers into a comprehensive immunization record. This consolidation reduces vaccine-preventable diseases and over-vaccination, allowing providers to view up-to-date patient immunization history in one system.

Health care providers are required to report immunizations shall report:  ALL immunizations administered to every child born after December 31, 1993 and less than 20 years of age within 72 hours of administration. Visit for applicable laws.
