DC Health launched a website that provides District residents easy and free access to their official COVID-19 vaccination records.
In order to use the service, residents must register by creating and activating an account at myir.dc.gov, which has a two-step verification process. Vaccination records will become available after the account is verified.
The certified records obtained from the portal can serve as proof for places that require COVID-19 immunization.
District residents can now have secure, easy, and free access to their official COVID-19 vaccination records.
The https://t.co/lrvG87BoJd portal will allow residents to view and print official copies of their vaccination records, and their dependents' records, at any time.

Some residents reported on Twitter that they failed to view their records on the portal, even though they received the coronavirus shot. According to the Mayor’s Office, the access issue may be stemming from these reasons:
- Their information (e.g. name, date of birth, phone number and/or address) may be different or is not up to date in MyIR’s system (old information, incorrect spelling, or if their name has changed)
- The person opted out of MyIR when they received their COVID-19 vaccination and chose not to share their records
DC Health advises those experiencing such a problem to contact their their vaccine provider to ensure their data is correct and to update their records.
Also, it is likely that there will be a delay in the uploading of records on MyIR for DC residents who got vaccinated in a different jurisdiction.
