Protect Your Vaccine Record Card

Posted by Merry, Volunteer Mentor @merpreb, Apr 4 8:46am

I was just looking at my half-finished vaccination card. Next Sunday is my second vaccination. I can't wait. It's been well over a year that I've been out and about as most of us.

But hold on, what do I do with my card once I'm vaccinated? CNN has some wonderful tips.

First off make sure that all the information on the card is 100% accurate BEFORE you leave where you are getting vaccinated. (name, date of birth, and the date and location of the vaccine — for accuracy. )

Secondly, take a photo of both sides on your phone, for the first vaccination (if possible) and then the second. Keep a copy on your phone and email a copy to yourself. Then photocopy it and keep at least one copy with your important documents.

Lost cards or very damaged ones need to be replaced. Contact the provider of your vaccinations if you need to replace yours. You might want to jot down the time and place of your vaccination in case you lose your card and need to replace it. Visit your health department immunization information system (IIS). My state has a COVID-19 Vaccine Portal through the State Department of Health.

I have read that you shouldn't laminate because there may be a need to write in boosters in the future. We made photo copies of our card and put them in our medical file. We made sure our primary doctor's office added out Covid vaccines into our immunization record. The original card we file with our passports.

@mhugs– Great idea about giving a copy of the card to your PCP. I'm going to check in my patient portal to see of he got a notice. Thanks!

I was at Mayo this week and they already had my COVID immunization information from Walgreens. When I checked my immunization under Medical Record on portal, it was there.

@roch – I texted my doctor through my patient concerning notification of my vaccinations. They also got a notification that I was fully vaccinated. I bet my Walgreens has it too.

After receiving both doses of the Moderna vaccine does Mayo issue CDC ID cards verifying patient vaccination status? If not, how can you get this document?

I received my COVID vaccination in January. EU countries are requiring a CDC vaccination card for proof. Will Mayo Clinic be providing cards for vaccinated patients?

Hi @pvb123 Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect.

Clinics which administer the vaccinations issue CDC cards at the time of the injections. If you didn’t receive a card, contact your medical provider where you received the vaccine.. They will have your immunization records on file and should be able replace your card.

Did you receive your vaccinations at a Mayo Clinic campus? If so, you should be able to access your records in your Mayo Patient portal and make a copy of the information. Contact the Mayo Clinic where you received the vaccine to get a sanctioned CDC.

Does the Mayo Clinic in Florida issue vaccination cards? My husband received both shots there and wasn't issued a card.

Hi Mayo Connect- with the increase for vaccination confirmation for things like travel and concerts, etc. Is there any reconsideration of issuing the CDC vaccination card, and if so would you retroactively issue for previous vaccinations? This is becoming the gold standard….

@woodwick29– Good morning and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. The card that you were issued is a CDC vaccination card.

I believe that your pharmacist or PCP should have information about your other vaccines. This is a great question. I'd also like a record of all of my vaccinations!

Did you not get a card?

I did not receive a card when I was vaccinated at Mayo. Instead, they printed my entire vaccination records. I would expect that locations requiring proof of vaccination would expect something closer to the format of a CDC card versus my vaccination records. I'm concerned that showing my COVID vaccination record from the Mayo app will not be acceptable for these events.

I agree. Go to VAMS and you can get your card. Will you let me know if it was easy or complicated?
