What is it?  The MCIR (Michigan Care Improvement Registry) was created in 1998 to collect reliable immunization information for children. All Michigan health care providers who provide immunizations to children must record them in MCIR within 72 hours of administration. In 2006 the MCIR was expanded to from a childhood immunization registry to a lifespan registry to include citizens of all ages. Marquette County Health Department encourages all providers to enter immunizations into MCIR and will provide referrals for staff training and education. 

Why is the MCIR needed?  MCIR benefits health care organizations, schools, childcare programs, pharmacies and citizens by consolidating immunization information from multiple providers into a comprehensive immunizqation record.

How to access your record? Call your local health department (906-475-7844) or primary care physician for assistance in accessing your MCIR record.

School/Childcare Immunization Reporting: School/Childcare personnel, please phone MCHD at 475-7844 and ask to speak with the MCIR/SIRS nurse. Training and local assistance for School/Childcare immunization reporting is available from MCHD staff.
