Reminder COVID-19 Vaccine Card Required: September 27, 2021
September 7, 2021
As we move ever closer to the date by which vaccinations for COVID-19 are required, and Flight Attendants continue to get vaccinated against COVID-19 in compliance with this policy, we remind everyone of the upcoming addition of the vaccine card to our list of required duty items.
Effective September 27, 2021, all U.S. based employees including those from Guam and Puerto Rico are required to have uploaded their vaccination records on Flying Together. It should be noted, effective this same date, COVID-19 vaccination cards will be required duty items for all Flight Attendants regardless of your base or destination.
We also want to acknowledge that we’ve received a number of questions asking if laminating vaccine cards is permissible. Once you have laminated the vaccination card, any booster information cannot then be recorded on that card. You will likely be required to obtain a new vaccination card if the booster becomes required and you’ve laminated your vaccination record. Any subsequent boosters are required as part of United’s Policy.
Also, If you have lost or misplaced your vaccination card and require a replacement, you should contact your vaccine provider for more information.
If you are not in possession of the original COVID-19 vaccination card as you prepare to travel to any of the countries currently requiring the vaccination record, you must contact Crew Scheduling to be removed from the pairing, without pay.

If you have additional questions, please contact your Local Council office for assistance.
