A digital vaccination record can be a convenient way to demonstrate that you have been vaccinated if you are required to do so by a business, venue, or travel location.
You have several options, including showing either the physical card or an image of the card from your phone, a QR code from the State of California vaccine record website, or using a third-party app such as CLEAR or SMART Health Card.
To get a QR code of your vaccination status, you can obtain a digital copy of your vaccination record through the state of California's Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record website. If a match is found, the website will send a text or email with a QR code. Save the QR code to your phone to use as needed.
Tip: Some people have trouble receiving their digital records when using the cell phone option. If you receive an error text, go back to the site, fill out your information again, and select email instead.
If you have lost the physical vaccination card, you will need to talk with your healthcare provider or go to the California Immunization Registry (CAIR) website to request a full immunization record that includes COVID-19. This may take several weeks so plan accordingly.
