The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says Americans who are fully vaccinated can safely ditch masks and social distancing in most situations. But what if you’ve misplaced that card that proves you’re fully vaccinated?

For the most part, the CDC’s guidance depends on the honor system, so you’re not required to show your vaccination card in most places to prove your immunization status. Still, it’s an important record to hold onto, and it’s a little too big for the average wallet.

Maricopa County Public Health recommends taking a picture of the front and back of your vaccine card for your records.

If you need a replacement card, you can request one through the Arizona Immunization Program Office, which is part of the Arizona Department of Health Services. You can fill out their Immunization Record Request Form and file it via email, fax, or mail.
