Here’s what to do if you lose your vaccination card
It happens — You get your COVID-19 vaccine, then lose the card that proves it. But, here are some simple steps to take to help keep track of your medical records.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests as soon as you get your vaccine card, take a picture of it. You should also make a photocopy if that’s available to you.
You could also laminate your card, but be careful not to smudge the ink, or wait until you’re completely vaccinated, because you’ll need to add additional shots to the record.
“It’s certainly like any part of your medical record,” explained Bob Hawkes, Director of the Physican Assistant Program at Florida Gulf Coast University. “It’s verification that you received a certain vaccine similar to when you receive other immunizations.”
If you got your vaccine at a Lee County vaccination site and lose your card, you can send an email to VOG.HTLAEHLF@OIP-EEL. In the email, include your date and location of your first dose, name, date of birth, address, and phone number.
