Pandemic Committee News
The Pandemic Committee is still engaged in following the re-opening of Los Angeles County as we go thru the County guidelines. At this point the chapter is not planning on opening up until further notice. Check back for more information as it becomes available.
NOTE: Do you need a digital copy of your Vaccination card?
As COVID-19 cases continue to spike in Los Angeles County, some venues and employers are beginning to require proof of a person being fully vaccinated against the coronavirus. Some employees, such as health care or state and local workers, will also be required to prove they've been vaccinated or can show a weekly negative COVID test. For those who wish to travel internationally, a growing number of countries around the world are now requiring some form of digital proof of vaccination.
If you've lost your original vaccine card, or just want a more convenient way to display the information, here's how you can get a digital card you can show as proof:
- Using your phone or computer go to http://myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov
- Input your name and birthday
- Provide an email address or phone number
- Input a 4-digit PIN code to access your record
- You will be emailed or texted a link. Open the link and put in the PIN code.
- Screenshot and save / print the image to show to anyone who requires it.
If they cannot locate your card, you will need to provide additional information, and it could take 2-3 weeks to get your records to you.
