Digital Vaccine Card
Storage Options




Before you head out this summer, you may need access to your COVID-19 Vaccination Card. Instead of carrying around your original copy, here are a few ways to carry a digital version instead. 

One way is to snap a photo of your card thereby saving it directly on your phone, or uploading the photo to a cloud service such as Google Photos, DropBox, AmazonPhotos, etc. where you can digitally access the photo.

Another way is to store it as an entry into a digital wallet using one such as GoGetVax which creates a digital certificate that can be placed in your Apple Wallet or Google Play.
