Vaccine cards to be issued to everyone getting COVID-19 vaccine, health officials say

NORTH MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) — US health officials say everyone who gets the COVID-19 vaccine will be issued a vaccination card to keep in their wallet.

The Department of Defense released the first images of vaccination Wednesday.

The vaccination cards will be used as a record of who has had one and when their next dose is due.

Vaccination clinics will also be reporting to their state immunization registries what vaccine was given.

Every dose administered will also be reported to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
