Vaccination Tips
COVID 19 Vaccination Card Tips
  • Do not post images of your COVID-19 vaccination card online. The Federal Trade Commission is warning you not to post images of your COVID-19 vaccination cards on social media. You may be excited about getting your vaccination and want to share it with others like how you would share special events like weddings, graduations, birthdays, and newborn arrivals. But you might be inviting identity theft.
  •  The COVID-19 Vaccination Record Cards have personal information including your full name, date of birth, and the date and location where you received your vaccination. When you post this information on a social media platform like Facebook, you are providing identity thieves with important information they can use. Identity thieves use these pieces of personal information like pieces of a puzzle to create a picture of you. They use these pieces of information with other bits of information to guess your Social Security number and discover additional information about you. Once identity thieves have the information they want, they can open accounts in your name, claim your tax refund, and engage in other identity theft activities. 
  • If you want to share the news about your vaccination, you can take a photo of the bandage covering your vaccination site or the sticker you receive indicating you received your shot. If you want to post a photo of the vaccination card, cover up all the personal information with your hand exposing only the title and CDC symbol at the top of the card. Check that photo before posting to be certain no personal information is exposed.
  •  For more information on protecting your identity online, check out the Privacy, Identity & Online Security section of the Federal Trade Commission’s website at www.consumer.ftc.gov. Take care of your COVID-19 vaccination card.
  •  As with any important document, you want to protect your COVID-19 vaccination card. You should keep the card in a safe place so it does not get lost or damaged. You may need your vaccination card in the future to get a booster shot or verify you are vaccinated. The CDC recommends taking a picture of your card on your phone or making a photocopy. Many people are laminating their vaccination cards to protect them. But there is some concern that laminating the card may cause the ink to blur and make it difficult to add booster shot information in the future. If you make a photocopy of the card, you can laminate the photocopy and carry it with you while the original vaccination card is kept in a safe place. Carrying the laminated card may be useful when we resume activities such as school, travel, sporting events, and concerts if testing, quarantining, or proof of immunization are needed to participate.
