What should I do if I get an error message during registration?

Carefully check the information you are entering, especially the verification code v-safe sent you. If you still have problems, close the browser window and start over (go to step 1, Registration).

How can I come back and finish a check-in later if I’m interrupted?

Later, when you’re ready for your check-in, click the link in the text message reminder to restart and complete your check-in.

I’ve gotten another dose of vaccine. How can I enter this information into v-safe?

You can follow the instructions above to access your account and enter information about another dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Once signed into your account, look for the below box and tap “Enter Vaccine Information.”

Please note that v-safe is not automatically notified when you receive another dose of vaccine. You must enter the additional dose in your account before the system will send you daily health check-ins for your most recent dose.

When do v-safe text links expire?

Text links to v-safe daily surveys expire at 11:59 PM local time on the day you received the link. Text links to weekly surveys expire at 11:59 PM local time on day 6 after you received the link.
