Immediately after your first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, you should have been handed a "COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card." Also, the fact that you got your dose should be documented in the State of California's Immunization Information System.
Did everything happen correctly? It's up to you to make sure they got the information and that it is correct.
Below are steps you can take to:
- Verify your record is on file
- Correct missing or inaccurate information on your vaccination record
- Get a Copy of your vaccination record
Begin by going to Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record (ca.gov) to get a copy of your COVID-19 vaccination records from the state. You will fill out a quick form (name, date of birth, cell/email contact info) and create a 4-digit PIN. When the information is texted or emailed to you, make sure it is correct. Save a copy of it.

- Call: (800) 578-7889
