WESTAMPTON, NJ – Have you lost your COVID-19 vaccination card and are not sure how you can get a copy to show proof that you have received the vaccine? The Burlington County Health Department is advising New Jersey residents on how to obtain a copy of the card through the New Jersey Department of Health.

Although the state Department of Health cannot provide you with a new CDC vaccination card, it can provide you with a copy of your immunization record. In order to request your immunization record, visit the New Jersey Immunization Information System (NJIIS) at http://njiis.nj.gov
