Louisianans who choose to do so are now able to access their COVID-19 vaccination record through a new, optional feature of the state’s digital driver’s license, the LA Wallet app, Gov. John Bel Edwards announced on Wednesday.
“If someone wants to have a digital copy of their vaccination record, they should be able to easily get one at no cost, which is what this optional feature of LA Wallet allows them to do,” Edwards said. “This enhancement is about connecting people with their own personal health information in a simple, secure way. The LA Wallet app is free, safe, and private and people who use it are assured that their personal health information is well protected.”
LA Wallet launched in 2018 as Louisiana’s digital driver’s license app. It is available on both the Apple App store and the Google Play store and is a legal driver’s license for all in the state of Louisiana. Live helpdesk, chat, and the LA Wallet website will be available for support.
People without access to smartphones can get printed copies of their vaccine records from their parish health unit or from any provider that administers vaccines and uses the LINKS system. Residents can also print their complete immunization record through MyIR.
