On the day of your vaccination
- If you have a health insurance card, please bring it. But, remember, there's no charge to you for the COVID-19 vaccine. In addition, identification is not required.
Your vaccine record
You’ll receive a vaccination card at the time of your COVID-19 vaccination. This small, white card will list which vaccine you received, the date of your vaccination and where you were vaccinated. Please keep this card safe, as it is an important health record.
A few tips to protect your card
- Do not laminate your card. The lamination process could damage your card or make it hard to read.
- Make copies of your card, and store the original in a safe place – just as you would any other important document. Carry a copy in your wallet, or take a photo of your card and keep it on your phone.
- Do not post a photo of your card on social media. Your vaccination card contains personal information that could be used for identity theft. Instead, post a photo of your Tidelands Health “I took my shot!” sticker to share your vaccination pride.
Print a COVID-19 vaccine certificate
If you lose your vaccination card or need another copy of your vaccination record, you may access a COVID-19 vaccination certificate via the Tidelands Health patient portal. This printable certificate lists the type of vaccine you received, as well as the date(s) your vaccine was administered. Log in to the portal, and click on “COVID-19 Certificate” to access your personalized certificate.
