Reporting to the Health Department

Reporting Immunization Program Status to the Health Department

Michigan schools and licensed childcare centers are required to report Immunization Program (IP) compliance on students through the age of 18 to their local health department. For training and county-specific reporting guidelines contact your Local Health Department.

Childcare Sites – Build and update roster by October 1st

  • If 90% complete rate is attained; close report on or after October 2nd
  • Report all children up to school age

Childcare sites should close the report period by clicking IP Status then clicking the “close period” button on October 2nd. (The button will not be highlighted and you will not be able to close the period if you are not at 90% compliancy.) Continue to update immunization records until you reach at least 90% compliance.

Upon closing the period an IP100 report will automatically be created.  Most Health Departments require a hard copy be submitted to them.

Most Health Departments also require all hard copies of all certified waivers and a waiver report to be submitted when the period is closed.  Run this report before closing the period.
