How to upload your vaccination card to MyHealthSpace

Once you have been fully vaccinated – by receiving two doses of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine, or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine – you should upload your completed vaccination card.  If you get your vaccine administered through University Health Services, you do not need to upload your proof of vaccination because your status will be automatically updated.

  1. Log into MyHealthSpace using your UofSC network username and password
  2. Click the Medical Clearances tab.
  3. Click the green Update button next to COVID Test/Vaccine.
  4. Attach a photo of your vaccine card or record.
  5. Enter your vaccination date(s) and choose which vaccine you received. Click Done.
  6. Your status should now say Under Review, and will change to Compliant after it is confirmed by University Health Services.
