What is a SMART Health card?
Massachusetts’ digital vaccine cards use the SMART Health Card platform, which is also used by many other states for similar vaccine verification programs. SMART Health Cards are paper or digital versions of your COVID vaccination record. They allow you to keep a copy of your records on hand and easily share this information with others if you choose. When scanned by a SMART Health Card reader, Massachusetts’ COVID-19 digital vaccine card will display all relevant information to the scanner, including your name, date of birth, COVID-19 vaccine dates and vaccine type. The QR code confirms the vaccine record as an official record of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. For more information about SMART Health Cards visit

How long will it take for my vaccine record to be updated in the state database so that I can update my digital vaccine card?

Health care providers vary in the length of time it takes to submit dose information to the Massachusetts Immunization Information System (MIIS). We recommend waiting up to 3-4 days for your COVID-19 doses and up to 10 days for any other doses to show up in the system.
