Province enhances access to COVID-19 immunization record

Individuals vaccinated for COVID-19 in Prince Edward Island can now access their immunization record online using the phone number provided at the time of vaccination. 

Previously, access to the self-serve online portal was only available to those who provided a health card number at the time of their vaccination.  Now, those who provided either a landline or cell phone number at the time of vaccination can enter that same phone number into the COVID-19 Immunization Record portal to receive a code, in one of two ways, allowing them access to their immunization record:

  • those who provided a landline phone number – will receive an automated phone call with a unique code needed to securely access their immunization record online;
  • those who provided a cell phone number – will receive an automated text message with a unique code needed to securely access their immunization record online.

People who provided their health card number at the time of vaccination can still use their health card number to directly log into the immunization record portal to access their record.

COVID-19 immunization records are updated and available through the online portal within 24-48 hours of vaccination. Individuals can login to the portal any time of day from a desktop computer or mobile device to download and print a copy of their record.   

Those who did not provide a phone number or health card number at the time of vaccination, or who do not have a health card number, can request a copy of their immunization record by emailing vaxrecord@gov.pe.ca. They should include their full name and daytime phone number in the email request. They can also call the COVID-19 Immunization Program toll-free at 1-844-975-3303.

A record of immunization may also be requested from the clinic or pharmacy at the time of vaccination. 

Since the province’s COVID-19 immunization record portal launched on June 25, more than 17,000 people have accessed their record online. 

As of July 10, 168,061 doses of COVID-19 vaccine were administered in the province, with 85.2 per cent of eligible Island residents 12 years of age and older having received their first dose and 34.4 per cent having received two doses. 

Individuals 12 years of age and older can still book first doses at provincial immunization clinics; and anyone 18 and older can book their first dose at a provincial immunization clinic or at one of the 29 participating pharmacies across the province.
