Getting Your Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Record

On Monday, January 10, Massachusetts introduced the “My Vax Records” tool. It allows residents to search the Massachusetts Immunization Information System (MIIS) for their vaccine records. When the records are found, the tool generates a QR code to store on your phone, creating a digital COVID-19 vaccine “passport” to show when required (e.g., for indoor dining or travel). While the system has worked well for many, the state has provided some information and guidance to help should you find missing or incorrect information in the MIIS.

Introducing the COVID-19 SMART Health Card: Online Proof of Vaccination

As some retail, entertainment and travel destinations are beginning to require customers to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (or show a negative COVID-19 test), having a safe and portable way to show proof of vaccination is becoming increasingly important.

Virtual Telehealth Visits for Patients Not Living in Massachusetts

This notice applies only to patients who are out-of-state at the time of their virtual telehealth appointment.

During the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency, many states relaxed these licensing requirements on a temporary basis.

A Message From Our Pediatric Chair

To our Pediatric Patients and Families:

MyHealth Test Results

Atrius Health is making some changes to the information available in your MyHealth account. Beginning April 10, 2021, we will release imaging, pathology, and other lab results as soon as they become available. Until this time, providers had access to test results before they were made available to patients. This change builds on our commitment to provide our patients with better access to their health information to help them engage with their health care providers and manage their care.
