Everyone Who Gets COVID-19 Vaccine Will Receive Vaccination Card

THURSDAY, Dec. 3, 2020 -- All Americans who get a COVID-19 vaccine will get a vaccination card, officials say.

The cards are the "simplest" way to keep track of those who have received a shot, according to Kelly Moore, M.D., associate director of the Immunization Action Coalition, which supports frontline workers who will administer COVID-19 vaccinations, CNN reported.

"Everyone will be issued a written card that they can put in their wallet that will tell them what they had and when their next dose is due," Moore said. "Let's do the simple, easy thing first. Everyone's going to get that."

In addition, vaccination clinics will report to their state immunization registries what vaccine was given, which would enable officials to check if it was unclear where a patient got a first dose, CNN reported. Also, every dose administered will be reported to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, according to Claire Hannan, executive director of the Association of Immunization Managers.

On Wednesday, the Department of Defense released the first images of a COVID-19 vaccination record card and vaccination kits, which include a card, a needle and syringe, alcohol wipes, and a mask, CNN reported.
