Province makes it easier to access COVID-19 immunization record
Individuals who received their COVID-19 vaccine in Prince Edward Island can now access their immunization record through a secure, online self-serve portal.
Starting today, anyone who was vaccinated in the province – either at a COVID-19 Immunization Clinic or at a partner pharmacy – and provided a health card number at the time of their vaccination appointment will be able to use the online self-serve portal by visiting COVID-19 Immunization Record. Health care workers vaccinated at a health care facility in the province will also be able to access their immunization record online.
“The launch of the self-serve COVID-19 Immunization Record portal is an important step to ensuring people vaccinated in our province can securely access to their own health information when they need to,” said Chief Public Health Officer, Dr. Heather Morrison. “We are all looking forward to being able to enjoy the things we love and miss more freely again, such as traveling and visiting our family and loved ones. Getting vaccinated and having a record of vaccination is key to helping us move forward so that we can put this pandemic behind us.”
Access to the portal is being phased-in over the next few days, allowing the more than one hundred thousand of people who have already been vaccinated in the province to get a copy of their record as follows:
- beginning Friday, June 25: Island residents with a health card number recorded at the time of vaccination who were born in the months of January - April
- beginning Saturday, June 26: Island residents with a health card number recorded at the time of vaccination who were born in the months of May - August
- beginning Sunday, June 27: Island residents with a health card number recorded at the time of vaccination who were born in the months of September - December
- beginning Monday, June 28: non-Island residents with an out-of-province health card number recorded at the time of vaccination
Immunization records will be updated 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.
“Many people who were vaccinated in our province have been asking for a record of their COVID-19 immunization from public health nursing, and this new online self-serve portal will allow anyone who provided a health card number at the time of vaccination to access their record any time they want, from anywhere,” said Health PEI’s Chief Nursing Officer Marion Dowling. “More importantly, the portal gives people a safe way to privately keep track of their immunization information, including the dates they were vaccinated and what kind of vaccines they received, without worrying about losing their paper copy.”
Individuals who did not provide a health card at the time of vaccination or who do not have a health card can request a copy of their immunization record by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 can also be requested from the clinic or pharmacy at the time of vaccination.
As of June 23, a total of 136,472 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in the province, with 80.1% of eligible Island residents 12 years of age and older having received their first dose and 16.9% 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 26 participating pharmacies across the province.
More information on PEI’s COVID-19 vaccine roll out and appointment booking is available online.
Prince Edward Island currently has no active cases of COVID-19 and has had 206 positive cases since the onset of the pandemic. Information about the province’s COVID-19 cases is available online.
