COVID-19 vaccine ordering: use vaccine in the field before it expires

If your site has excess inventory of COVID-19 vaccines, please report them via our SmartSheet tool: COVID-19 Vaccine Available for Redistribution at least 4-6 weeks prior to their expiration so we can facilitate redistribution and minimize wastage. There is a substantial amount of COVID-19 vaccine inventory at provider sites throughout the state and demand for vaccinations is decreasing. To be good stewards of this federal resource and to reduce vaccine wastage, we are making every effort to fill COVID-19 vaccine requests via redistribution. We ask that you continue your vaccination efforts while working to decrease your inventory to match current demand across the state.

MIIC COVID-19 assessment report

MIIC users can run a report to assess and monitor COVID-19 immunization coverage rates. This report is available for the user’s organization or for a specific group of clients. Knowing your coverage rates can help in vaccination planning and provide helpful context for determining your organization’s need for reminder/recall activities for COVID-19 vaccination. Please review our user guide and training video at Immunization Assessment. Please contact the MIIC Help Desk at with any questions you have!
