Benefits of Being Vaccinated
Information on Youth Vaccines
Lost Vaccine Cards for Staff Vaccinated Through SCOE
There are several ways to obtain proof of vaccination if you have misplaced your vaccine record card.
State of California Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record Site
This website provides a fast and easy way for any vaccinated Californian to obtain an official, digital record of their COVID-19 vaccine. We recommend that anyone who needs proof of vaccination use this online resource. Once there, CA residents will be prompted to provide their name, date of birth, and an email or cell phone number they used when getting their vaccine in order to access their own digital vaccination records/proofs.
Contact Your Insurance Provider
Most insurance providers maintain a record of insurance for their clients, even if you were not vaccinated through your insurance provider. Please contact your provider directly to request proof of vaccination.
Proof of Vaccination Through SCOE
If you are a school employee or childcare provider who was vaccinated through SCOE's clinic at Rancho Cotate High School and you have lost or misplaced your vaccine card, SCOE can also reissue you a new card. However, due to a high volume of vaccination related requests, it might take up to three weeks to reproduce your card. We appreciate your patience. Please email email@example.com to request the new card, providing your first and last name, date of vaccination, school/district, and contact information.
Please note: If you were not vaccinated at the SCOE clinic hosted at Rancho Cotate High School, SCOE did not administer your vaccine and will not be able to re-issue a card. If you were vaccinated by Safeway at the clinic hosted at SCOE's Skylane Boulevard clinic, please contact Safeway.
