Flu shot FAQ's

How can my doctor see that I've received a flu shot?

MVNA submits immunization data to the Minnesota Immunization Information Connection (MIIC). MIIC is a statewide immunization information system that stores electronic immunization records for Minnesota health service providers and for the public. If your primary provider is enrolled in MIIC, he or she can view your immunization record, which would include the flu shot you received onsite and had billed through your insurance.

Isn't sharing immunization data without consent in violation of HIPAA regulations?

No, HIPAA's privacy regulation makes a very clear exemption for disclosing protected health information without consent for public health purposes. Since MIIC is a public health service operated by public health authorities, disclosing immunization data to MIIC is exempt from HIPAA regulations.

How are immunization records protected?

MIIC is password-protected and accessible only by authorized users as specified in law. The data in MIIC are classified as private and protected by the Minnesota Immunization Data Sharing Law. Organizations participating in MIIC must sign a user agreement that outlines the privacy and security terms for authorized users.

Flu information

What is the flu?

The flu is a contagious respiratory illness caused by influenza viruses that infect the nose, throat, and lungs. It can cause mild to severe illness.

People who have the flu often feel some or all of these signs and symptoms:

  • Fever* or feeling feverish/chills
  • Cough
  • Sore throat
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Muscle or body aches
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue (very tired)
  • Some people may have vomiting and diarrhea, though this is more common in children than adults.

*It’s important to note that not everyone with flu will have a fever. (CDC)

How does the flu spread?

Flu viruses spread mainly by droplets made when people with flu cough, sneeze or talk. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby. A person might also get flu by touching a surface or object that has flu virus on it then touching their own mouth, eyes or possibly their nose. People may infect others beginning 1 day before symptoms develop and up to 5 to 7 days after becoming sick.

How can I reduce the risk of contracting the flu?

  • Get vaccinated.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. If you are sick, keep your distance from others.
  • Wash your hands often or use an alcohol hand rub if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
  • Practice other good health habits. Get enough sleep, eat nutritious foods, stay hydrated, be physically active and manage your stress.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces such as light switches, door knobs, faucet handles, remote controls, refrigerator door handles, etc.
  • Stay home when you are sick, avoid going to work, school and running errands.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing.
