CDC stops printing COVID-19 vaccination cards: pandemic relic

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has stopped printing coronavirus vaccination cards since the federal government is no longer distributing vaccines. 

The cards, which were once essential to getting into places like restaurants, festivals and bars, have largely become obsolete following the end of the pandemic. 

Starting in late 2020, when the first vaccines became available, the CDC shipped more than 980 million cards to Americans. 

People who have lost their card can likely request their immunization record where they got their shot or through a state immunization registry. Digital cards may also be available depending on the state. 

After Moderna and Pfizer’s newest iterations of the vaccine were approved by the FDA last month, four million people have already gotten it, according to the CDC.
