California state health officials announced Friday that residents will now be able to access their digital coronavirus vaccine record from the state's immunization registry.

According to the California Department of Public Health and the Department of Technology, the new Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record for Californians is available at The tool allows Californians who received a COVID-19 vaccination to receive a QR code to access their private record.

“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 State Epidemiologist Dr. Erica Pan. “And if one of the state's nearly 20 million vaccinated Californians misplaces their paper card, the Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record provides a convenient backup.''

To access your record, residents must enter their name, date of birth and an email or the phone number that is associated with their vaccine record. Users will be asked to create a four-digit PIN to gain access. CDPH officials added that the California's Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record website complies with national standards for security and privacy.

“We worked with CDPH, tech industry leaders, and consulted with California's top businesses, service and event purveyors to create a system that works well for all sectors,'' said Amy Tong, state CIO and director of the California Department of Technology. “We achieved our goal to quickly produce an intuitive portal that offers Californians another way, and an easier way, to access their own COVID-19 immunization history.''

The information displayed online shows the same information as what you have on your paper COVID-19 vaccine card including: name, date of birth, date of vaccinations and vaccine manufacturer.
