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.

@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?

Correct – I was not provided a card but a print out of my vaccination. It is not in the same format and I am just concerned it won't be accepted or it will be a headache and a half getting it accepted. I was vaccinated at Mayo Clinic in Red Wing MN. Is it possible to get a 'replacement' card?

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

I was able to create an account on VAMS, but it will really only let me schedule an appointment – doesn't seem to have any ability to look up my vaccination. Am I missing somethign?

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?

Oh, dear I mislead you. VAMS is for making appointments. Try this one: https://www.mayoclinichealthsystem.org/patient-online-services

Hi @woodwick29 @nschambu and all Mayo Clinic patients looking for their COVID vaccine card.

You can get your COVID vaccine card and print it out from the Mayo Clinic patient portal (Patient Online Services) or the Mayo Clinic app.
Please see the instructions online here: https://mcforms.mayo.edu/mc7800-mc7899/mc7881-61.pdf

I'll also include the instructions here:

PATIENT ONLINE SERVICES ON THE WEB
1 Log in to Patient Online Services.
2 Select “COVID-19” from the menu on the left side of the home page.
3 Select “COVID-19 Test Results & Vaccine Records” from the COVID-19 page.
4 Select the arrowhead to expand the box with your vaccination records.
5 Select the print icon to the right of the words “COVID-19.”
6 Select the print button in the print window to print your records.

PATIENT ONLINE SERVICES ON THE MAYO CLINIC APP

If you have caregiver access to a Patient Online Services account for a patient between ages 13 and 17, you can view and print their COVID-19 vaccination records. Open their account from your Patient Online Services account, and follow the steps above.

if you had the first vaccine three months ago. and have not taken the second one.. any issues / concerns with getting the second shot??

Welcome @rsandler to Mayo Connect. According to the CDC you do not have to start over. Make sure that when you make an appointment that you have your card with you so it can be filled in. There really aren't any studies that show that there are issues about this as yet.
https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/second-shot.html
"It's best to get your second dose as close to the recommended interval as possible. But, if a delay is unavoidable, missing this window doesn't mean you've missed your only chance of getting your second dose. It also doesn't mean you need to start your vaccination plan over completely," says Dr. Ashley Drews, medical director of infection prevention and control at Houston Methodist."

Are you planning on getting your seconnd vaccine soon?

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.

I received my vaccinations at the Jacksonville campus, and specifically asked for a vaccination card. I was told Mayo was not providing them, and to refer to the portal for information about my vaccinations. Now I am going on a cruise, and a vaccination card is required for boarding. Photocopies and smart phones are not accepted. How do I get an official vaccination card to use for travel?
