SEWELL, N.J. — Gloucester County Mega Site is urging residents who lost their CDC cards after their second dose to visit the New Jersey Immunization Information System (NJIIS) to request their immunization record.

“The CDC card you receive at the time of your appointment is a medical record. It is extremely important to keep your CDC card safe, but if you do misplace it, contact NJIIS immediately to receive your record,” Director Robert M. Damminger said.

To replace a lost COVID-19 vaccination record, navigate to the NJIIS website. Once on this page, complete the following actions:

  • Click on “Submit a Request” from the top blue ribbon.
  • Click “I want to request a copy of my immunization record from NJIIS”, which will open a form which you need to complete. 
  • Note: You will need to attach a copy of your photo ID. Acceptable forms of ID include: a state-issued photo driver’s license with address; a state-issued photo non-driver’s identification card with address; a similar form of identification issued by this State, another state, or the Federal government; or a photo identification card issued by a New Jersey County Clerk.
  • It is important that if you wish to have a copy of the COVID-19 vaccine lot number, please write this in the description section of the ticket.
  • Click “Send” to submit your request, and your request will typically be processed within 24-48 business hours. 

“We appreciate everyone coming out to receive the COVID-19 vaccine and are excited to continue to serve residents,” Gloucester County Commissioner Jim Jefferson said. “If you are still in search of the vaccine, there are appointments posted through April, 2021.”
