BATON ROUGE, La. — Louisianan residents are now able to access their COVID-19 vaccination record through a new, optional feature from the LA Wallet app, which is the state’s digital driver’s license.
Gov. John Bel Edwards made the announcement Wednesday during a press briefing to give an update on COVID-19 in the state after loosening restrictions.
“If someone wants to have a digital copy of their vaccination record, they should be able to easily get one at no cost, which is what this optional feature of LA Wallet allows them to do," said Edwards. "This enhancement is about connecting people with their own personal health information in a simple, secure way. The LA Wallet app is free, safe and private and people who use it are assured that their personal health information is well protected.”
According to the governor's office, LA Wallet launched in 2018 as Louisiana’s digital driver’s license app. It is available on both the Apple App store and the Google Play store and is a legal driver’s license for all in the state of Louisiana.
People without access to smartphones can get printed copies of their vaccine records from their parish health unit or from any provider that administers vaccines and uses the LINKS system.
Residents can also print their complete immunization record through MyIR.

In late April, Edwards announced the loosening of restrictions in the state, leaving mask mandates up to local businesses and governments.
Masks are still required on public transit, in state buildings and at all schools, he said. Any business can decide not to follow the mandate, but of course any citizen is free to wear their mask where ever they like.
