Immunization Cards and Immunization Records



Immunization Cards


Manitoba is now offering an immunization card for people who are fully immunized.

When you request your immunization card, a digital card that you can carry on your mobile device will be created automatically. If you request a physical card, it should arrive in the mail within two weeks. These cards will include your first and last names and a QR code. When scanned, the QR code will show that you are fully vaccinated.

To be eligible to request your immunization card:

  • you must have a Manitoba health card
  • you must have received all required doses of a vaccine
    • (that means for Pfizer, Moderna or AstraZeneca, you require two doses.)
  • you must wait 14 days after getting your last dose of vaccine

Register to create your account and enter the required information - name, birthdate, health card registration number and Personal Health Information Number (PHIN).  If you wish to have a physical card mailed to the address on your Manitoba health card, be sure to check the box before you submit your request.

NOTE: if the address on your Manitoba health card is not your current mailing address, go to www.gov.mb.ca/health/mhsip/forms.html to update your address. Once you receive your new Manitoba health card, you can request your immunization card.
