Getting ‘COVID-carded’ and what to do if you’ve lost yours
Getting ‘COVID-carded’ is becoming more of a requirement for businesses, events and venues.
The COVID-19 vaccination card you received is becoming increasingly important to gain access to places like restaurants, concerts and travel destinations.
If you got the shots but have since lost your card, you still have a few options to prove your vaccination status.
For the thousands who got vaccinated at the State Fairgrounds in Salem, Salem Health has your records. Log into mychart.salemhealth.org and click on “Your COVID-19 Status.” It will allow you to download your vaccination record, which includes the dates and details of your shots.

If you got your shots from another clinic or physician’s office, contact them and request a copy of your vaccination record.
If those options are unsuccessful, you can request records for both adults and children from the Oregon Alert Immunization Information System by going to alertiis.org and clicking on forms. Or contact ALERT IIS at 800-980-9431 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, or email [email protected]
It may take up to five days to get records.
