6:08 am
easy for everyone. >> reporter: californians have options when it comes to proving they're vaccinated. you can carry your card with you, register your vaccine record digitally. rick sheldon figured that last option was probably the safest. >> the country is headed that way and i wanted to be in the system as opposed to having this card that might not even be valid in the future. >> reporter: sheldon and hi wife both received the vaccine. >> her registration went swimmingly. i knew what was supposed to happen. when i entered my information there was an error and my information was not linked properly. i was not too happy. >> reporter: manish chan had the same experience. >> i was done in five minutes. there were no problem. my parents weren't so lucky. >> reporter: when his mom tried to register, on one dose came up. >> it was the second date and the second dose is completely
