The Department of Health and Human Services manages the delivery of health- and human-related services for all North Carolinians, especially our most vulnerable citizens – children, elderly, disabled and low-income families. The Department works closely with health care professionals, community leaders and advocacy groups; local, state and federal entities; and many other stakeholders to make this happen. Led by Dr. Mandy K. Cohen, the Department is divided into 30 divisions and offices. NCDHHS divisions and offices fall under four broad service areas - health, human services, administrative and support functions. NCDHHS also oversees 14 facilities: developmental centers, neuro-medical treatment centers, psychiatric hospitals, alcohol and drug abuse treatment centers, and two residential programs for children. Please see the general information tab for our comment policy.

At your first vaccination appointment, you should get a CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record card that has what COVID-19 vaccine you received, the date you received it, and where you received it. Keep this card safe and take a picture of it as a backup copy.

You may need your Vaccination Record Card:

  • if you get another shot or booster, so your provider can add information about your additional shot.
  • if businesses or employers require proof of vaccination (more info).
  • for some international travel.

A digital photo of your card(s), or printed or digital versions of your vaccine information from your vaccine providers should, in most cases, serve as a valid replacement for the physical paper card.

If You Have Lost Your Vaccination Record Card

Your vaccine provider is often the best source of information about your vaccination, and some information may be available online.

If you received your vaccinations or booster from different providers, you may need to obtain your vaccination record from each provider directly.

More information about your vaccine
Can companies or requirements require proof of vaccination? (Yes.) Is a hard copy a valid replacement for a lost card? (Yes.) See answers to these and other frequently asked questions about vaccinations, proof of vaccination, travel, and privacy.
