What you need to know about COVID-19 vaccination cards

Over 2.8 million COVID-19 vaccine doses have already been given to Washingtonians. Even if you don't have one yet, you may have already seen pictures of a “vaccination card” on the news or social media. So, what is this card, and what should you do with it once you get it?

When you get a vaccination, you should receive a vaccination record card. This card is not only proof that you got your shot, but it can also help you keep track of your vaccine information. This information is important to ensure you get the correct second dose — at the right time.

Your vaccination record card will tell you:

  • Which type of vaccine you received (Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson)
  • When you got your first dose
  • When to go back for your second dose (not applicable for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine)
  • Your vaccine provider’s name or clinic site

When it’s time for your second dose, remember to take your vaccination card with you! Your provider will update it with the new information. This is proof that you got both of your doses.

It's important to keep your vaccine record safe and do not share on social media. When you want to tell the world you got your shot, try sharing a photo of your COVID-19 vaccine sticker, or one of you at the site. Learn more about vaccination cards in this blog post from the Washington State Department of Health.

Talking about COVID-19 vaccines with friends and family

COVID-19 vaccines are new, and it’s normal to for people to have questions about them. The sheer amount of information—and misinformation—about COVID-19 vaccines can be overwhelming to anyone. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shares some tips on how you can help address concerns your loved ones may have about COVID-19 vaccines. After addressing concerns with empathy and facts, you can steer the conversation from “why not” to the important reasons that matter to them—their “why.” 

Once someone decides on their “why,” help them make a commitment to get vaccinated. Remember, every person who chooses to get vaccinated brings us all a step closer to moving past the COVID-19 pandemic.  As a trusted messenger to your family and friends, you can play a role in their decision to vaccinate.
