In an effort to expand consumer access to immunization records, a new app from the New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH) makes it easier for individuals and families vaccinated in the state to access their COVID-19 vaccination record.
The free consumer access Docket app is now available in the App store or on Google Play. The app allows people vaccinated in New Jersey to easily access their COVID-19 record digitally.
“The app will be helpful to those who perhaps have lost their vaccination card or it got damaged or want quick access to their record,” said Commissioner Persichilli. “Docket will improve the ease and turnaround time for those who want a copy of their COVID-19 immunization history.”
The system is designed to allow individuals with an email or phone number on file with the New Jersey Immunization Information System (NJIIS) to access their COVID-19 vaccination record using the app. The app also can provide access to family members’ COVID-19 records through a shared account.
Docket, a CDC-approved application, connects people directly with the NJIIS to deliver COVID-19 immunization records for individuals and their families vaccinated in New Jersey. The app currently only displays COVID-19 vaccination details, however, future plans include expanded access for other full immunization histories.
If a resident received their COVID-19 vaccine out-of-state, their records may not be available in NJIIS. NJDOH has worked with New York State and New York City to obtain records of New Jersey residents vaccinated there and is working on obtaining records for New Jersey residents vaccinated in other states and jurisdictions.
The app adheres to federal and state standards for data security and privacy. NJIIS captures an individual’s name, phone number and demographic details which were shared at the time of vaccination. This data is used to show a person’s COVID-19 immunization record through Docket.
