Vaccine Documentation

If you received your vaccine with the Fairfield Health Department and registered through VAMS, you can print your vaccine certificate by logging into VAMS and going to “Print Certificate”. Keep that for your records. If you need a blank vaccination card please call 203-256-3020.

Please be aware of two COVID-19 vaccine scams circulating. One scam is a phone call, email, or letter from a vaccine manufacturer (Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, or Moderna) asking for:

1. Social Security Number to help you get a vaccine appointment. You should NEVER give out your Social Security number for the vaccine.

2. Offering cash rewards or gift cards in exchange for completing a survey. The survey asks for personal information, such as your date of birth and insurance information. The vaccine manufacturers will never contact you directly to gather information.
