  • Looking for your vaccination record? Please note that while some vaccinations are recorded in the Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS), it is not a federal registry and there is neither the ability nor a requirement for vaccines administered and recorded in other technology to also be documented in VAMS. If you received both doses from a provider who has an electronic health record system you might be able to access documentation through their system. Your CDC card provided at the time of vaccination is considered an official record or you can call DPH 860-509-7929 to request an official immunization certificate that can be used as proof of the COVID vaccination.
