Definition:

MIMS is a population-based system that provides monitoring and reminders to help achieve high levels of immunization. The goal of this system is to compile information on all immunizations administered in Manitoba to ensure recommended immunizations are received. Immunization status is monitored by comparing the system record and the recommended schedule. This system also gives information on immunization histories, including type of vaccine administered, vaccine sequence schedule, service date, provider information, and some demographic information from the Manitoba Health Insurance Registry.

As of 2005/2006, the MIMS database includes approximately 200,000 immunization records and about 170 data elements which are input by 134 sites in Manitoba with MIMS access. Initially, only immunizations provided to children born after 1980 were recorded. In 2000, adult immunizations began to be added to the system. Note that immunizations supplied by private companies may not be included.
