The Public Health Information Management System (PHIMS) is an integrated information system that supports the collection and dissemination of information related to public health initiatives (e.g., immunizations, communicable disease control, health inspections, epidemiology) in Manitoba. The system is maintained by Manitoba Health. Currently, the Manitoba Population Research Data Repository holds PHIMS data related to:

  • the Manitoba Immunization Registry - PHIMS (all types of immunizations);
  • COVID-19 Vaccinations, Appointments and Screening; and
  • COVID-19 Surveillance - Cases and Contacts
