Vaccine Cards Will Help Keep Track of COVID-19 Vaccinations
The Department of Defense released photos of the vaccination kits and cards that will be part of the coronavirus vaccination process.
The Department of Defense announced on December 3 that vaccination cards will be used to keep track of COVID-19 vaccinations in the United States, according to CNN.
“Everyone will be issued a written card that they can put in their wallet that will tell them what they had and when their next dose is due,” said Dr. Kelly Moore, associate director of the Immunization Action Coalition.
Reports on vaccinations will also be done by clinics. Patients will likely be contacted via text message to let them know when they should get their next dose of the vaccine, which requires two doses in order to be effective.
The vaccination kits will include a vaccination card, alcohol wipes, a mask, a needle and a syringe. There are 100 million kits prepared for use once vaccination distribution begins. Pfizer and Moderna have both applied for FDA approval for their COVID-19 vaccinations.
