What to do if you lose your Covid-19 vaccine card

EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) -- More young children are getting vaccinated and older adults are getting booster shots here in El Paso. For parents, that means you have even more vaccination cards that you need to take care of.

So here's what to do in case you lose it.

The first thing to do is contact the health care provider that you received the vaccine from. Pharmacies and doctors offices can pull up those records quickly.

According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, all health care providers have access to vaccination records through the state registry called ImmTrac2.

If you received a vaccine at a state vaccine hub your best bet is to contact DSHS at 1-800-252-9152 or click here.
You'll then need to fill out an Authorization to Release ImmTrac2 History form and mail it in order to get a copy of your immunization records.

Parents with small children have to opt in for the ImmTrac2 registry, something Dr. Rana Kronfol, an El Paso pediatrician, says parents should do.

"We actually really encouraged the immunization registry," Kronfol said "It allows you to always have access to it schools... (and) school nurses have access to it."

But it's not just your Covid-19 vaccine card that parents should keep their eye on.

Kronfol said all vaccines are important and making sure they're update to date is critical.

"i just really encourage a yearly exam with your pediatrician. It allows the pediatrician an opportunity not only to review vaccines, but to make sure that the child is healthy, do more preventive medicine, talk about their height, their weight, their blood pressure," she said.

  1. “On Friday Nov. 12 Dr. Fauci told The New York Times that the vaccines did not work as advertised and that Americans are in danger due to their waning immunity.” So get your clot jab so big pharma can make a few more billion dollars.

    1. 1st, that isn’t what Fauci said. 2nd, all these vaccines were paid for already. There’s a copy of the bill signed by then-President Trump in DC. You can find it online.

      1. Nitwit Stevie is do daft. We are talking the booster vaccines nitwit. They were paid for by the Biden administration. Trump has not been POTUS for over 10 months so it’s not about him. Get help for your TDS. It’s a serious mental disease. You’ve been suffering from it for at least 5 years.

        1. From the USDHHS website: “Biden Administration purchases additional doses of COVID-19 vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and Department of Defense (DOD) have purchased an additional 100 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines from both Pfizer Inc. and Moderna Inc. to help meet demand for COVID-19 vaccines in the United States.”
