English translation

  • You must provide a certified English translation if your vaccine card/records are not in English.  
  • If your vaccine card already has the translation preprinted on your card in addition to your native language, this is acceptable as long as the name of the vaccine and your name is on the card in English.
  • This is the same process as required for immunization records.

How to tell if your vaccination has been submitted

  • McKinley doesn’t send notifications if a vaccine has been verified.
    • You can check to see if your record has been verified by visiting the Immunizations section of your MyMcKinley Portal. Select “View History” and then click “Print” and there should be a full list of your verified vaccination records. Although you may see your vaccination record in the McKinley system, your vaccination status may not be immediately reflected in the Safer Illinois app.
  • You will, however, receive feedback from McKinley if they are missing information or received unacceptable documentation.
    • Please check the inbox in your MyMcKinley to see if you have any secure messages.
  • Verification by McKinley may take up to two weeks at the longest and as little as a day in the shortest time frame. This is dependent on their total volume any one week.

    information and additional instructions.
  • If you need to upload a new document and the consent form is no longer open, instead of using the “Forms” tab, go to the “Uploads” tab.

Complete this form and email it to the address listed at the top of the document. A fax number is not required. IDPH will send you documentation which is an official State of Illinois record.

If you were vaccinated outside of Illinois, you can contact your local vaccine provider, local county health department or state health department.
