If you are like many Americans and received your vaccine somewhere other than your regular doctor's office, this article explores ways to make sure your COVID-19 vaccine history and details are incorporated into your medical record. Employers should consider sharing these tips with employees, particularly those who travel and may need to show proof of vaccine for international travel.
Getting vaccinated against Covid-19 and receiving a vaccination card has become a rite of passage for many Americans who have endured the pandemic for the last year.
Securing a vaccination card, however, doesn't necessarily mean your Covid-19 vaccine status is in your medical records.
