DOVER — Delawareans can now access their immunization records from the state’s official vaccine database, DelVAX, via a public access portal.
The Delaware Division of Public Health said the portal will assist those who need to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination but may have lost their vaccination card. While DPH does not replace the card, the vaccination record is displayed through the site.
Parents and legal guardians can print official immunization records for their children, up to age 17, and adults older than 18 can print a report for themselves. The portal will identify all administered vaccines, not only those for COVID-19.
The site is located here.
Once the portal is accessed, a visitor can enter the last name, first name, date of birth, gender and relationship to the person whose record is being sought. Finally, choose either “Text” or “Email” to receive a code to access the immunizations. When the cellphone number or email address is entered, click “Search.”
Once the record is found, click “Request Code to Access Immunization Record.”
An access code will be sent via text or email to enter on the “Verification Code” screen. Click “Verify” once the access code has been entered.
The official record can be printed or saved as a PDF. DPH asks users to allow one to three business days for records to be updated in DelVAX.
Individuals who need assistance can call 800-282-8672 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. DPH said to contact the program if:
DPH officials said responses to emails and calls received after regular business hours or on weekends may take up to 48 hours.
The division added, “The security and protection of patient records is our highest priority. DelVAX uses two-factor authentication via text messaging or email to validate patient, parent or guardian access.”
