COVID-19 booster shots will be rolling out soon, and all you need is your vaccination card to show that you have received the first two doses.
But, don’t fret. If you lose your card, there are ways to get it back.
When you received your COVID-19 vaccine, you were given a vaccination card that tells you which vaccine you received, what date you got it, and where the shot was administered.
If your vaccine card gets lost or destroyed, contact the vaccination provider site where you originally got your shot.
The CDC says vaccination providers are required to keep that information in their system.
However, many people received their COVID-19 shots at pop-up or mass vaccination sites. In that case, contact the Immunization Information System in the state that you were vaccinated.
For those who received their doses at CVS, Walgreens, Kroger, or other chain pharmacies, there are several options.
Some have the information available online, or on their app. Others can write you a new card based on the information in their system.
The CDC does recommend taking a picture of your vaccination card as a backup copy just in case you need it in the future.
