Like other routine vaccinations, you will need to share some personal information with your vaccine provider when you get a COVID-19 vaccine. This may include your name, date of birth, and contact information. Some medical forms may have a field to enter your social security number, but you are not required to provide it.
Your privacy is a top priority, and your information won’t be used for anything other than vaccine distribution and follow-up information about the vaccine.
Sharing your identity and some of your medical history ensures the vaccine is administered safely, effectively, and responsibly. Your immunization records are confidential, personal medical information, and public health will never share them publicly.
The state health department maintains the Colorado Immunization Information System (CIIS), a confidential, population-based, secure computerized system that collects and consolidates individual-level vaccine and exemption data for Coloradans of all ages from a variety of sources. Health care providers have limited access to CIIS based on their need to input and access data for their patients. Under Colorado law, you can choose to remove your immunization information from CIIS at any time. This is called an opt-out.
The state health department submits daily, anonymous COVID-19 vaccine administration data to the CDC as required. The state works to ensure that no personally identifiable information like your name or full address will be shared with CDC.
