Protecting Your COVID-19 Vaccine Card

As of April 15, 2021, every Californian 16 & up will be eligible for vaccination.

When you’re fully vaccinated, you’ll receive a 3-by-4 inch vaccination card.

You want to hold on to this cardstock because it is your ticket back to normal life. Airlines, concert venues, and more are considering whether or not proof of vaccination will be required. If it is, this card will be crucial.

Should I get my COVID-19 vaccine card laminated?

Yes!, however, if you are getting a two-dose vaccine (Pfizer or Moderna), make sure you have completed your second dose before laminating your card.

I also recommend you make a copy of your card and store it with your important files wherever that may be in your house.

OfficeMax and Staples are both offering a promotion where individuals can have their vaccination card laminated for free. OfficeMax will laminate your vaccination card for free through July 25, 2021

For even more peace of mind, I recommend scanning the front and back of your vaccine card, emailing a copy to yourself, and storing the digital copy in your cloud drive.

If you’re not getting the vaccine from your primary care doctor and getting it from a superstation or third party, I recommend sending a copy to your doctor; that way, a copy of your vaccine added to your immunization record.
