Accessing Your Digital Vaccine Record (DVR)

Your Digital Vaccine Record (DVR) is an electronic vaccination record from the California Immunization Registry (CAIR). The DVR portal allows you to access your records anytime without having to visit your healthcare provider and can be used for school or work requirements.

What information does the DVR include?
The DVR has your name, date of birth, vaccination dates, vaccines received, and future vaccine recommendations. Records are printable!

Where do I access my Digital Vaccine Record?
Visit to request access to your record. The online DVR request form is available in multiple languages. 

What digital records can I access from the DVR Portal?
There are two types of records you can access from the DVR portal:

  • COVID-19 QR code that when scanned by a SMART Health Card reader will display the same information on your CDC vaccine card: your name, date of birth, vaccination dates, and vaccines. 
  • All of your vaccinations reported to CAIR by healthcare providers and pharmacies. Please note that all of your vaccinations may not have been reported to CAIR.
