LOST AND INCORRECT VACCINE CARD
Vaccination records are maintained by the State. If you have lost your COVID-19 CDC vaccine card, obtain a record of your immunization through:
CA Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record: A digital vaccine record that details your COVID-19 vaccination, as stored in the California Immunization Registry (CAIR), that includes COVID-19 vaccination dates, vaccine type received and a QR code. Request your Digital Record from the State online and download the image and save for your records
Your Health Care Provider: If you are having issues accessing your digital record from the State, it is possible that your health care provider may have record of your COVID-19 vaccination. Call your health care provider or login to your health care provider's member portal immunizations page to check
If you are unable to retrieve your record or if there is an error on your record, the State has created a Virtual Assistant tool to submit requests for Vaccine Record errors.
