COVID-19 vaccine record and vaccine pass

UnitedHealthcare members may access a printed or digital vaccine record

After you’ve been vaccinated, you may be asked to present proof of vaccination to participate in some activities. Your primary proof of vaccination is your CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Card. In addition to this, UnitedHealthcare members have a few other options to use for digital proof of your vaccination:

  • Your vaccination provider may have provided you a digital record of their patient portal.
  • Your UnitedHealthcare health record or specific COVID-19 vaccine record is available when you sign in to your health plan account at myuhc.com or medicare.uhc.com. If no record shows when you sign in, you may self-report your vaccine.
  • A UnitedHealthcare vaccine pass with QR code may be available to many UnitedHealthcare members when you sign in to your health plan account. This vaccine pass is created using UnitedHealthcare records of vaccination. It is currently not available for self-reported vaccinations.

How to create a vaccine pass for a dependent that is 13 years old or older

Dependents 13 years old and older will need to create their own myuhc.com account to be able to generate a vaccine pass. The COVID-19 vaccine pass is not available for self-reported COVID-19 vaccine records.

How to create a vaccine pass for a dependent under 13 years old

Only the digital vaccine record, which shows a member’s vaccinations, is available for this population at this time. Enhancements are underway to offer a vaccine pass, which is a QR code showing vaccination status, to the under 13 population and will be completed in 2022.

Footnote

  1. UnitedHealthcare cannot guarantee your digital COVID-19 vaccine pass will be accepted by the destination. It is also not yet known if a digital COVID-19 vaccine pass for a partial vaccination (i.e., first dose received of a 2-dose vaccine) will be accepted by your destination. Some destinations may require a copy of your CDC COVID-19 Vaccination card. Your destination, such as the event organizer or country, should be able to provide you more information on COVID-19 vaccination and vaccine documentation requirements.
