DSHS Taking Orders for COVID-19 Vaccine Record Cards
By Joey Berlin

If you’ve enrolled to administer COVID-19 vaccines with the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS), you can now order vaccine record cards from the agency.

Both DSHS and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) require physicians and other practitioners administering COVID-19 vaccines to complete and provide vaccination record cards to every patient, or to the patient’s parent or legal representative. DSHS is taking orders of up to 50 cards per request, which you can email to the COVID-19 Vaccine Provider Help Desk in the following format:

  • (Quantity requested) COVID-19 vaccination record cards;
  • Six-digit provider identification number for the COVID-19 vaccine program;
  • Name of facility;
  • Point of contact name;
  • Address line 1;
  • Address line 2; and
  • City, state, ZIP code.

DSHS notes that some organizations may not accept CDC’s COVID-19 vaccination record card as an official documentation of receiving the vaccine.

For more information on DSHS’ COVID-19 vaccination efforts, visit the agency’s website.
