COVID-19 Vaccination Records Ver página en Español

There are several types of vaccination record:

*You can show the card, a photo of the card as a separate document, or a photo of the card stored on a phone or electronic device.

Your paper or digital COVID-19 vaccination record should be available at no cost.
For more information, see the CDPH Vaccine Record Guidelines & Standards. Businesses can use this guide to verify proof of COVID-19 vaccination.

The record should include your name, the date(s) that you were vaccinated, and the type of vaccine that you received. To prove that you have been vaccinated, you must show a photo ID in addition to your vaccination record.

You are considered fully vaccinated against COVID-19 two weeks after:

  • You got a Johnson & Johnson (J&J)/Janssen COVID-19 vaccine, or
  • You got a second dose of a Pfizer or Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, or
  • You finished the series of a COVID-19 vaccine that has been listed for emergency use by the World Health Organization [WHO]

  • Everyone in the US should be given a CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card when they are vaccinated.
  • Please keep it safe. Consider taking a photo or making a photocopy of it. 
  • If you did not get a white card, or you lost it, you can print a copy of your digital COVID-19 vaccine record (see below).

  • You can request a free digital COVID-19 Vaccination Record if you were vaccinated in California*.
    It takes less than a minute to complete the request and your record is sent by email or text within seconds.
  • The record can be saved in Google Pay on an Android phone or the Apple Health app. Alternatively, you can take a screenshot of your Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record and save it to your camera roll.
  • If you are a parent or guardian and have multiple appointments associated with the same phone number or email, enter each digital vaccine record request separately
*If you were vaccinated by a federal agency (e.g., Department of Defense, Indian Health Services or Veterans Affairs), you must request a vaccine record from the agency directly. This is because the California Immunization Registry (CAIR) does not hold information on vaccines given in these facilities.

Healthvana vaccine record concept

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health partnered with Healthvana in December of 2020 to December 2021 to provide digital vaccination records to people who received vaccinations within Los Angeles County.  While existing Healthvana records remain valid, vaccine doses, including boosters, that were given after 12/05/21 will not be included in Healthvana records. Individuals who were vaccinated after 12/05/21 will need to obtain their complete digital vaccination record from the State.

For more information about Healthvana records visit the Healthvana FAQs page or visit the healthvana.com webpage and select “contact” in the menu.

Fraud alert! Vaccine passport scams
Alert sign

Vaccine passport scams are being used to steal people’s money or identity!
Right now, there are no plans to create a national COVID-19 vaccine verification app, certificate or passport.
To stay ahead of scammers:

  • Be suspicious of anyone contacting you from the government. No agency will call, email, or text demanding your personal information or money to get a vaccine certificate or passport.
  • Check with airlines and event venues about their requirements. Don’t rely on information from someone who calls, texts, or emails you out of the blue.
  • Don’t share your information with just anyone. That real-looking site or app could be scammers looking for your money or information.

Fake vaccination cards are illegal!
