An annual observance to highlight the importance of protecting infants from vaccine-preventable diseases and celebrate the achievements of immunization programs and their partners in promoting healthy communities.
Check your child’s immunization records and make sure they are up-to-date in their shots. For copies of your child’s immunization records, talk to your doctor or call the Minnesota Immunization Information Connection (MIIC) Record Request Line at 651-201-3980.
If you’re concerned about the cost of shots, the Minnesota Vaccines for Children program can help. Children who are uninsured, Medicaid-eligible, Native American or Alaska native, or have insurance that does not cover the cost of the vaccine can get their shots free of cost through the Minnesota Vaccines for Children program. Call your health care provider or local public health agency to ask if they participate in the Minnesota Vaccines for Children program.
