Speaker 1: After a year of waiting for a vaccine, you got the jab and now you're holding on a, your vaccine card. Like it's a pot of gold and you should, here's what to do. If you lose your vaccination card and how to prevent losing it in the future, it's essentially an index card. It doesn't necessarily fit in your wallet, but having your vaccine card with you in certain places, at least for now has proven to be beneficial. Whether you're going back to work to a sporting game or traveling outside of the country, if something should happen to your vaccination [00:00:30] card or you lose it, your first order of business should be to contact the site where you were vaccinated and ask for a replacement. But what if like me, you were vaccinated at your city's football field. It's not exactly a hospital, a supermarket or a drug store.
Speaker 1: I can't exactly go to Ford field and say, Hey, remember me. Well, chances are the place where you got vaccinated and who administered or sponsored these vaccinations are different. I'll look further into that information will show you exactly who that was. My grocery store sponsored [00:01:00] my vaccinations. So I'm gonna start by contacting them another way to do it is by reaching out to your state's immunization information system. So you got your replacement. How do you keep it safe? Some say laminating. It is not a good idea. Since you won't be able to add another vaccine dose to the card. Even if you have received your second dose, there's a good chance. We'll be getting a vaccine in the future. Also laminating. It could SMU the information you currently have on the card, the benefits to laminating. Is it significantly [00:01:30] lessens the chance of damaging or soiling the card? So the answer is there is no real answer. Six one way, half a dozen another. But if you do laminate, not saying you should place a like office Depot and staples are doing it for free. You could also make a physical copy of the card, maybe even shrink it down. So it fits in your wallet and laminate that and keep an original at home. But it's 20, 21, [00:02:00] surely there's a digital solution to this full debate. You'll wanna hang onto your physical copy, but as a backup and while the digital vaccine passport hangs in the balance, you also have the option of taking a photo of your vaccination card and saving it as a PDF.
Speaker 1: Or you can upload that photo along with your phone number it to fax. Yes. Which creates a digital certificate that can be stored in your device's wallet V yes, [00:02:30] or go get backs will ask for a photo of your ID, your fax card information of which vaccine you received. And when you received it after typing in your email, you'll get a text confirmation, and then you'll have the ability to click on, add to apple wallet and create your digital certificate. Your VAX card is the best evidence to show proof of vaccination in case you need it. So don't lose it. But if you do or already have and found this video, helpful ring that bill and check out some of our other videos.
