  • UPDATED 01.10.2022 -  Baker-Polito Administration Launches Tool for Residents to Access COVID-19 Digital Vaccine Card: “My Vax Records” Provides New Option to Access Vaccine History and QR Code to Verify COVID-19 VaccinationThe Baker-Polito Administration today announced a tool that gives residents a new way to access their COVID-19 digital vaccine card and vaccination history. The new tool, called My Vax Records, allows people who received their vaccination in Massachusetts to access their own vaccination history and generate a COVID-19 digital vaccine card, which would contain similar vaccination information to a paper CDC card. The COVID-19 digital vaccine cards produced by the system utilize the SMART Health Card platform and generate a QR code that can be used to verify vaccination. Access the new tool at MyVaxRecords.Mass.Gov.   Learn more about the tool and view frequently-asked-questions at www.mass.gov/myvaxrecord. Massachusetts has worked with VCI,™ a voluntary coalition of public and private organizations which developed the open-source SMART Health Card Framework in use by other states. Pharmacies that administered the COVID vaccine and many health care providers also are making SMART Health Cards available, or are providing additional options. Learn more.
