How can I get a copy of my vaccine record? Can I get a new vaccine card if I lose it?
Try to keep your vaccine card in a safe place so you don’t lose it, like in your wallet or stored with other important documents. You can also take a picture of it with your smartphone. Carry your COVID-19 vaccination card with you in case a business or venue asks to see it.
If you lost your vaccine card or your information is wrong, the Vermont Immunization Registry (IMR) can give you a copy of your vaccination record. The IMR and the CDC cannot issue you a new white CDC COVID-19 vaccination card.
If you got your vaccine at a pharmacy, they may be able to replace your COVID-19 vaccination card. Not all pharmacies or locations provide this service. Check before you go to be sure. You could also check with your health care provider to see if they issue new COVID-19 vaccination cards.
To request a copy of your vaccination record, follow the instructions from the IMR or call 888-688-4667, option 3. You can get a copy of your record as an encrypted email (within two business days) or through the mail (within about a week).
If you choose to get your vaccine card laminated, please note that the ink used to write in your dose could run when heat is applied. Also, booster shots or additional doses won’t be able to be recorded if the card is laminated.
If you are a Vermont resident and got the COVID-19 vaccine in another state, connect with your health care provider in Vermont to make sure your vaccination is on record. This will ensure that both your medical records are updated and your vaccine is recorded in the Vermont Immunization Registry.
