One of our listeners says they were never provided with a physical “Immunization Record Card” when they got their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine in B.C.
“No one mentioned it or gave me one. Is an actual card necessary to receive the second shot?”
If you didn’t get a paper copy of your immunization record, don’t worry.
According to the province, you’re given the option to receive a paper and digital copy of the record when you get your first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
The digital version is available on the Health Gateway portal, which you need to register for.
Anyone 12 years and older with a BC Services Card can access the Health Gateway.
A copy of your immunization record is also stored on the province’s online database, and is accessible to you, public health, and your doctor.
