(Victor Valley)– San Bernardino County residents (and others throughout the state) who’ve been vaccinated can now obtain a digital vaccination record to complement their paper card. The digital record will be virtually impossible to lose, and it won’t get torn, damaged, or lost in the wash.
The Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record portal is a voluntary system that offers every vaccinated Californian an opt-in, secure, and shareable digital copy of their COVID-19 vaccination record. The Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record portal is easy to use: a person enters their name, date of birth, and an email or mobile phone number associated with their vaccine record. After creating a 4-digit PIN, the user receives a link to their vaccine record that will open upon re-entry of the PIN.
“While CDPH recommends that vaccinated Californians keep their paper CDC card in a safe and secure place, we recognize that some people might prefer an electronic version,” said California State Epidemiologist Dr. Erica Pan. “And if one of the state’s vaccinated Californians misplaces their paper card, the Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record provides a convenient backup.”
