You will need specific documentation to verify you received the COVID-19 vaccine. If you’re attending an event that requires proof you received the COVID-19 vaccination, you can verify using ID.me. This article outlines what documents you’ll need to prove you received COVID-19 vaccines.
Documents to verify COVID-19 vaccination
To verify COVID-19 vaccination, you’ll need one of the following documents:
- CDC COVID-19 vaccination record card - Shows you received an FDA authorized COVID-19 vaccine. Ensure your card has a CDC logo. You’ll need to submit both the front and back of the card. If your vaccine doses are on separate CDC cards, upload the front images of both cards in one photo, then both back images in the second photo. Enter all the doses that are on your documents.
- State immunization records - Ensure you include all vaccine dates and doses, including any boosters you received, if present on the document.
- Health provider vaccination record - This may include services like MyChart or your pharmacy account. Ensure you include all vaccine dates and doses, including any boosters you received, if present on the document.
Keep in mind:
- Booster vaccines aren’t required to get verified. You can add booster vaccine information to your ID.me account at a later time.

For any of the accepted vaccines, keep in mind:
- You must have documentation for any of the doses you receive.
- For vaccines with two doses, verify 14 days after your second dose. If your vaccine only requires one dose, verify 14 days after the first dose.
