ALBANY, N.Y. (WKBW) — As New York State continues to expand eligibility for the COVID-19 vaccine, more New Yorkers are being vaccinated.
Under current state guidance you will need share your COVID-19 vaccination status or proof of a negative COVID-19 test result to enter major stadiums and arenas, wedding receptions and other events above the social gathering limit.
But what should you do if you lose your COVID-19 vaccination card?
7 Eyewitness News reached out to the state to get the answer for you.
As we move towards fully re-opening New York State, it's important to keep proof of your COVID-19 vaccine in a place that is convenient and safe.
This can be accomplished in a number of ways, including taking a photo of your card or utilizing New York's Excelsior Pass, a digital pass specifically designed to help fast-track a return to participating in public events.
If you lose your proof of COVID-19 vaccination you should contact the New York State COVID-19 Vaccination Hotline at 1-833-NYS-4-VAX (1-833-697-4829) and we will provide you with a copy of your immunization record from the New York State Immunization Information System.
In short, if you lose your card and don't have New York's Excelsior Pass, you should call 1-833-NYS-4-VAX (1-833-697-4829) to get a replacement copy.
