U-M Health Launches Mobile COVID-19 Vaccination and Test Verification

Public venues from restaurants and bars to concert halls are increasingly requiring proof of vaccination for entry.

Instead of carrying around their CDC-issued vaccine card, University of Michigan Health patients now have the option of displaying a digital copy of their COVID-19 vaccination record and recent COVID-19 test results through the MyUofMHealth patient portal and mobile phone app.

Users can pull up their verification as text or as a QR code, which can be read by scanners at participating locations.

“We are committed to offering patients easy access to their health information.  The MyUofMHealth patient portal is a key way for patients to access health records including immunization records and test results,” said Margaret Punch, M.D., professor of obstetrics and gynecology, Associate Medical Director for Virtual Care and Associate Chief Medical Information Officer.

Patients who did not receive their COVID vaccine from U-M Health can still integrate their vaccination record by using the patient portal to look up their information in the Michigan Care Improvement Registry (MCIR). MCIR contains records of all individuals who received a vaccine in Michigan.

The QR code can also be used to provide results of a patient’s most recent COVID-19 test, if tested at U-M Health. This information can also be accessed via web browser at myuofmhealth.org.
