Faculty, staff and students are required to record their vaccination status on their online self-assessment. Please do so at your earliest opportunity. If you lost your COVID-19 vaccination record, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has launched the Michigan Immunization Portal. Michiganders ages 18 and older with immunization records posted in the Michigan Care Improvement Registry (MCIR) will be able to locate their own record online and download, save or print this information. Users must create a MILogin account at Michigan.gov/MiImmsportal and upload a valid government issued photo ID, such as a driver's license, state ID or passport. There is no cost to access the portal.
