Tool for Massachusetts Residents to Access COVID-19 Digital Vaccine Card

The Baker-Polito administration announced an option for Massachusetts residents to access their COVID-19 vaccination record from the state’s immunization registry and obtain a ‘SMART Health Card’ QR code to indicate proof of vaccination.

This web portal follows national standards for security and privacy and provides residents a way to electronically view and save their COVID-19 vaccine record.  Once you visit myvaxrecords.mass.gov, follow these steps:

  1. Click the “Find my vaccine record” button on that page.
  2. Enter the information (name, cell phone or email, date of birth, gender) you gave when you got your vaccine.
  3. If they find a match, they will send you a link to a copy of your vaccination record.
  4. Once the SMART Health Card is received, you are able to save the QR code to your phone, save a screenshot to your phone or print out a copy for a paper record.

You will also be able to obtain information about other immunizations that you have received, through this portal.
