PEKIN (WEEK) – The CDC reported that fully vaccinated people could participate in many of the activities that they did before the pandemic. After people received the COVID-19 vaccination they were given a white card with a record of receival.
This card acted as a verification of vaccination. If the card is lost it may have been hard to prove vaccination status.
“I was hoping i wouldn’t lose the first one,” Journi Cummings said. Cummings kept her vaccination card on her person incase vaccination verification was required wherever she went.
Others kept copies of their vaccination cards.
A person who asked to be anonymous said, “I do not carry my vaccination card with me, but I have an app on my phone which is my chart and it shows vaccination and the dates that shots were given.”
Jason Lamer, who we spoke to at a park in Pekin, said he keeps his records on his phone.
“I do not carry my vaccination card with me, but I have an app on my phone. MyChart, it shows vaccination and the dates that shots were given,” Lamer said.
MyChart was not the only that kept a digital footprint of vaccination records.
Walmart and Sam’s Club also offered digital vaccine records.
The CDC recommended you called your vaccination provider. If you couldn’t find your provider the CDC had each state’s immunization information system listed on their website.
The Illinois Department of Public Health encouraged the “vax verify portal”, where all immunizations records were available.
To have it verified, your social security number had to be provided.
