V-safe Enrollment Instructions

You will need your smartphone to enroll in v-safe.  It is helpful to have your COVID-19 vaccination record card to help you remember details about which vaccine you received and when. If you cannot remember your vaccination information or cannot find your card, please contact your healthcare professional.

Are you trying to add a dependent in v-safe? You can add any dependent (family member, friend, or individual who relies on you for support) who is vaccinated in v-safe. Children under age 16 years must be added to a parent or guardian’s v-safe account. If you already have a v-safe account, you can add a dependent to your existing account by following these instructions. Creating an account to add a dependent does not require that you enter your own vaccination information or complete health check-ins for yourself.
