Lost Your COVID Vaccination Card? How to Obtain Your COVID-19 Vaccination Record

When you are needing a new verification of vaccination, here is what you need to know. Tulare County Public Health can only provide verification for vaccines they have administered.

1. Check with your provider to request vaccine verification. All providers who administer the vaccines have access to the California Immunization Registry (CAIR) and can confirm your vaccine.

2. You can request your vaccine records (regardless of provider(s)) directly from CAIR. The form can be completed 2-3 weeks after you have been vaccinated.

CAIR2 Form – Authorization to Release Healthcare Information: https://cairforms.cairweb.org/AuthorizationToRelease/AuthorizationToRelease

The State process requires uploading a copy of a current valid government-issued ID with picture (i.e. current driver’s license). Additionally, the State record you receive will contain ALL immunizations stored in your immunization record in CAIR. They are unable to produce a record that only contains COVID-19 vaccinations.

3. If you received your COVID-19 vaccine at a County of Tulare sponsored event, and are looking for your vaccination record please follow these steps:

  • Please allow at least 2 to 3 weeks after your vaccine is administered to complete this online form

  • Complete this online form to request it to allow the administering site time to report to CAIR.

    • English: tiny.cc/tcroienglish

    • Spanish: tiny.cc/tcroispanish

  • Requests are emailed to PHImmunizations@tularecounty.ca.gov

GENERAL INFORMATION:

Adults requesting records for adult children, family, spouses, or significant others: Anyone over the age of 18 is responsible for requesting his or her own record. Please have them submit their own request to avoid any delays in processing time, as requests are processed in the order they are received.

Minors requesting immunization records: Please have your parent or guardian request your records. Any requests submitted by a minor will be denied unless you are an emancipated youth and have court documents to show this.
