More restaurants, bars and events in Raleigh are requiring proof that patrons are fully vaccinated or show a negative COVID-19 test.
But the COVID-19 vaccination records don’t easily fit in your wallet — and what if you’ve accidentally lost it?
Here’s how to find your COVID-19 vaccination record in North Carolina and how to keep it at hand in a digital format.
How to find your COVID-19 vaccination record
So you lost your COVID-19 vaccination record card? Don’t worry, you can still print your information to get to that concert or sit inside at the restaurant requiring vaccinations.
The state of North Carolina has a vaccine portal to view or print your information. Visit the site and login, using the email address you gave to the North Carolina provider.
If you run into issues, there’s an online help desk and a call center. The call center at 888-675-4567 is open 7 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday through and weekends 8 a.m.-4 p.m.
After you’ve logged in, go to My Dashboard>COVID-19 Vaccine Information. At that point, you can print or download your COVID-19 vaccination info.
Keep the QR code: After signing into the NC portal (as mentioned above), you can use the QR code provided as a valid replacement or proof of vaccine. It does include personal information. [instructions]
If you received a vaccine at a pharmacy, you should contact that pharmacy to access your records.
How to keep track of your COVID-19 vaccination record
There’s no consistent way businesses or venues are tracking vaccination cards.
Most will accept just a photo on your phone, but there are a few more ways to keep it handy.
Apps include: VaxYes and more intensive verifications for travel such as CommonPass and CLEAR.
