COVID-19 VACCINE INFORMATION

Find COVID-19 Vaccines near you: VaccineFinder.

Question: How do I prove that I’ve been vaccinated? 

Answer: At your first appointment, you’ll receive a vaccination card that says what type of vaccine you received and when you need to get vaccinated for your second dose. This card is your best proof of vaccination so it is a good idea to also take a picture of both sides of it.

If you lose your card, you can also access your Nebraska vaccination records through the Nebraska State Immunization Information System (NESIIS). If you are having trouble accessing your vaccination records through NESIIS, please consult your healthcare provider for assistance. NESIIS also has a Help Line at 1-888-433-2510 or can be reached by email at www.dhhs.ne.gov/nesiis (Note -- If you were vaccinated outside of Nebraska, you’ll need to contact that state or vaccine provider). 


COVID TESTING: Your primary care doctor is the best resource to recommend locations providing for COVID-19 rapid testing. Additionally, you can reference the Douglas County Health Department website for names of facilities that provide rapid testing. Resources for testing will fluctuate at locations, so we recommend calling/scheduling a visit to ensure a test can be administered before you go.

COVID testing is covered 100% under the District's insurance benefit regardless of in-network or out-of-network testing location if the covered individual is symptomatic.
