How to Find Your Immunization Records

Many people lose track of their immunization records and want to be able to replace the information in the fastest way possible. California is streamlining access to digital immunization records, making it easier for you and your doctors to verify and securely access past vaccinations.
Here are some helpful tips on finding your/your child’s old immunization records.

Tips for Finding Immunization Records

— Search Online or At Home — 

  • Digital Vaccine Record Portal: Get a digital copy of your vaccine record from the California Immunization Registry (CAIR2). CAIR2 is a secure, confidential, statewide computerized immunization information system for California residents.If you are a parent or guardian and have multiple vaccine records associated with a single cell phone number or email address, enter each Digital Vaccine Record request separately.
    • Troubleshoot Problem​s with Digital Record
    • Note: Your Digital Vaccine Record may not be complete if some or all your vaccine doses were not reported to the California Immunization Registry.
    • For assistance with CAIR2, please contact the CAIR2 Help Desk at 1-800-578-7889 or via email at
  • Look around your home: Search through old papers,
    baby books, and school or camp forms. Ask family members, such as your parents or grandparents, if they kept your childhood records.

— Call/Request from Providers and Organizations —

  • Doctor's office, local public health department, or neighborhood clinic where your vaccines were given. If vaccines were given at more than one clinic, this may take several phone calls.
    • Note: Old patient records may be stored at a medical record storage company and may not be readily accessible.
  • Child care, schools, and colleges or other post-secondary institutions that you or your child attended. They may be able to look up older immunization records.
