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.

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

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]

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.

CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card (white card)
Generic vaccine record card

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 digital COVID-19 Vaccination Record if you were vaccinated in California (unless you were vaccinated at a federal facility – see below). Visit myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov to request your record. Be sure to use the email or cell phone number you used when you received your vaccine. It takes less than a minute to complete the request and your record is sent by email or text within seconds.

The digital record includes a QR code that can be scanned by a SMART Health Card reader. You can save your digital vaccine record to Google Pay if you have Android phone version 5 and Google Play Services version 21.18 or above. If you have an iPhone with the iOS 15 operating system you can also save your digital vaccine record to the Apple Health app. You will need to use your Safari web browser to complete the process. Another option is to take a screenshot of your record or print it out.

  • If you request your record and it can’t be found, re-enter your information. Check that your name and birthdate are correct. If your record is still missing or it has errors, follow the troubleshooting tips at cdph.ca.gov/covidvaccinerecord or call 833-422-4255. For more information, see myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov/faq.
  • If you lose your digital COVID-19 vaccine record, you can start the process over at myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov.
  • If you are a parent or guardian and have created multiple appointments with the same phone number or email, enter the requests one at a time to receive separate links for each vaccine record.

If you were vaccinated by a federal facility (e.g., Department of Defense, Indian Health Services or Veterans Affairs), you must request a vaccine record from the facility directly. This is because the California Immunization Registry (CAIR) does not hold information on vaccines given in these facilities.

Healvana logoHealthvana COVID-19 Digital Vaccination Record
Healthvana vaccine record concept

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health partnered with Healthvana in December of 2020 to provide digital vaccination records. These are available to residents of LA County (including Pasadena and Long Beach) who have received at least one dose of vaccine (regardless of where they were vaccinated) and anyone who has received at least one dose in LA County (regardless of where they live).

If you received a vaccine at one of these locations, you should receive an email from vaccine@Healthvana.com and/or a text message from Healthvana with a secure link (most text messages will display as 37586). When you click the link in the email or text, you will be asked to enter your first name, last name, and date of birth to confirm your identity. You can then view your digital vaccination record. You also have the option to download it to a digital wallet (Apple Wallet for iPhones and Google Pay for Android devices).

Due to the high volume of vaccination records being processed, there may be a delay in getting your digital record from Healthvana. If you don’t get the email or text within 1 month of being vaccinated, visit the healthvana.com webpage and select “contact” in the menu to request your record. Please note that it is not currently possible to upload a self-reported vaccine record into Healthvana unless you already have a Healthvana record of your first dose (see below).

If your 2nd dose is missing from your Healthvana record:

You can complete your digital vaccination record by uploading an image of your white CDC vaccination card as proof of your 2nd dose. To do this:

  1. Log in to your Healthvana account at https://patient.healthvana.com
  2. Navigate to the Vaccinations page
  3. Click the “Add 2nd Dose” button
If you never finished setting up an account, you can do this by following the instructions to set a password here. More information is available on the Healthvana FAQs page. At this time, this feature is only available to those who received a Healthvana digital record of their 1st dose.

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!
