myVaccine Record Frequently Asked Questions

How soon after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, including a booster, can I access myVaccine record?

After you receive your vaccine, your healthcare provider should promptly report your vaccination to the Colorado Immunization Information System (CIIS). This time may vary, so please allow 24-72 hours for your vaccination to appear in myVaccine Record.


How do I refresh myVaccine Record after receiving my second or third vaccine dose?

Open your myVaccine Record and tap the refresh button at the top of your screen. Enter either your phone number or email address and tap Submit.


Can I access my vaccine card in myVaccine Record if I have not been fully vaccinated?

Yes. Even if you are partially vaccinated, you can still access myVaccine Record and your vaccine status will show as “Partially Vaccinated for COVID-19.”


Why can’t I access my vaccination record via myVaccine Record?

While most providers in Colorado report vaccinations to the Colorado Immunization Information System (CIIS), federal providers do not. If you received your COVID-19 vaccine from a federal provider, please contact the health care professional or clinic where you received your vaccine and ask them to report your record to CIIS.

Please note: The contact information you enter on the myColorado app must match the contact information associated with your record in CIIS. If you have questions about your immunization record, please fill out this form to request assistance.


My contact information was recently updated in CIIS. When can I expect to be able to access my record?
It will take a minimum of 24 hours for your updated contact information to reflect on your account.


Can I access my children’s vaccine record?

No. You are only able to access your own personal record.


Can I access other immunization records besides my COVID-19 vaccination information?

No. You are only able to access your COVID-19 vaccination record.


I was vaccinated in another state, how do I report this to Colorado so I can access myVaccine Record in the myColorado app?

If you are a Colorado resident and have a Colorado driver license or state-issued ID, you can call your provider in the state you received your vaccine and ask them to report your vaccination record via email to CIIS at cdphe.ciis@state.co.us. As soon as your vaccination information has been reported to CIIS, you can pull your own myVaccine Record in the myColorado app. At this time, only Colorado residents with a Colorado driver license or state-issued ID can use myColorado and myVaccine Record.


Will my immunization information remain private?

Yes! Use of the myColorado app to retrieve vaccination records is voluntary on an opt-in basis. No data will be accessed or shared except that which is requested by a myColorado user who has been authenticated through facial recognition. A retrieved vaccination record is only visible to the myColorado user who downloaded it, and the data is not shared with anyone else in the retrieval process.


Is this a vaccine passport?

No. The digital CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card is a way to view your COVID-19 vaccine information. It is a convenient digital version of your paper vaccination record card that draws your immunization information directly from Colorado’s Immunization Information System (CIIS).


Are there other ways for me to obtain a copy of my COVID-19 vaccine record?

Yes. In addition to the paper CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card you were given when you received your COVID-19 vaccine(s) and myVaccine Record, you can obtain a copy of your COVID-19 vaccine record via the Colorado Immunization Information System (CIIS) or contacting your primary care provider.


Why can’t I find the myColorado app in the Google Play Store?

The Google Play store only displays apps that are compatible with your phone. If you search and can’t find the app, you may need to upgrade your phone or operating system.


Where did my downloaded vaccine record go (Android users)?

Some LG and Motorola phones don’t come with an app that lets you open downloaded PDF documents. If you have downloaded your vaccine record but cannot locate the file on your phone, you may need to install a PDF reader app on your phone to access the file. Several free apps are available on the Google Play store.


Where did my downloaded vaccine record go (iOS users)?

  • Download the PDF and access via your Files app. Click Browse -> iCloud Drive -> myColoradoicloudcontainer folder.

    • If you are not able to locate your PDF, download in your Files app or you receive a “Sign into iCloud” error, please check your iOS settings. First, confirm that you are signed into your iCloud account. Once you are signed in make sure that your iOS Wallet app is enabled. To make sure your Wallet is enabled go to your Settings -> Apple ID -> iCloud -> Wallet. Click the slider so that it is green or in the “on” position. To disable your Wallet, click the slider again until it turns grey or in the “off” position.


Why does myColorado use multi-factor authentication (MFA) for logging in?

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) helps to keep your account more secure by requiring account credentials along with additional information (e.g., a verification code sent to your phone.) This makes it harder for someone who is not authorize to access your account.


I don’t want my immunization record card displayed anymore. Can I delete it?

Yes. Click the trash can icon in the upper righthand corner and follow the prompts.

Is there a fee to use a SMART® Health Card?

What happens to my information after I share it?

No. The card should only contain your legal name, date of birth, and clinical information like vaccination history. A Colorado SMART® Health Card issued in other countries could include commonly used identifiers, depending on local practices or regulations.


Will I be able to use my Colorado SMART® Health Card to store and share other clinical information?

Not at this time.

Troubleshooting Tips

I received an error message stating “We didn’t find an exact match” or “More than one immunization record was found.” What should I do?

The Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) has set up a help desk to assist you. Please fill out this form to request assistance. The CDPHE help desk is extremely busy right now, so please expect a turnaround of 1-2 business days.

We apologize for any inconvenience this causes. In some cases, it may be easier to talk to the provider who administered your vaccine to confirm that they submitted the correct First, Last and Middle names, phone number and/or email address.


What should I do if I received a COVID-19 vaccine(s) in Colorado but I can’t access myVaccine Record in the myColorado App?

The most likely reasons are:

  • You don’t have a Colorado ID or license

  • You don’t have data/WiFi/internet connectivity

Since these are required to create a myColorado account, you cannot pull your vaccine card without all three of the above.
