Reminder to check for your COVID-19 vaccine record in the digital COVID-19 vaccine verification system launched in June by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). Technology & Digital Solutions has provided updated vaccination information from both Epic and Occupational Health’s Agility EMR to the CDPH, which should help resolve any access issues experienced by some individuals at Stanford Medicine. Several other health care organizations have experienced the same challenge. Any remaining issues with locating your COVID-19 vaccine information would need to be addressed by the CDPH. For help, refer to these FAQs or visit the CDPH’s troubleshooting website.
Staff at Stanford Health Care, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, University Healthcare Alliance, and Packard Children’s Health Alliance, and members of the medical staff who received their COVID-19 vaccination outside of the 300P Atrium or Occupational Health can email their COVID-19 vaccination records to OHS_C19vaccination@stanfordhealthcare.org. Stanford Health Care - ValleyCare staff and medical staff members can email their records to Jbelmore@stanfordhealthcare.org.
