Americans will receive a ‘vaccination card’ showing they’ve taken the COVID-19 shot, raising the prospect that airlines and venues could refuse service to those who are not immunized.
“Everyone will be issued a written card that they can put in their wallet that will tell them what they had and when their next dose is due,” Dr. Kelly Moore, associate director of the Immunization Action Coalition, told CNN.
The vaccination card will be issued by the CDC and patients will be asked to provide a cell phone number so they can be contacted when it is time to receive their second dose.
Vaccination clinics will also send records of who has taken the shot to state immunization registries and every dose administered will also be reported to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
