Vaccinated individuals can use a smartphone to tell the Centers for Disease Control about any side effects after getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Users will also get reminders if they need a second vaccine dose.

V-safe is a smartphone-based tool that uses text messaging and web surveys to provide personalized health check-ins after you receive a COVID-19 vaccine. Through v-safe, you can quickly tell CDC if you have any side effects after getting a COVID-19 vaccine. Depending on your answers to the web surveys, someone from CDC may call to check on you and get more information.

Here are the registration sites:

Note: V-safe cannot schedule COVID-19 vaccination appointments, nor serve as an official record of being vaccinated against COVID-19. You will receive a COVID-19 vaccination card at your vaccination appointment.

V-safe does not provide medical advice. If you have symptoms or health problems that concern you at any time following COVID-19 vaccination, contact your healthcare provider.
