The Department of Health has launched its Covid-19 vaccine certificate portal, which will give users a QR code that shows their vaccination status.

The certificate is only available to people fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Users are required to go to the portal at and fill in their contact details, including their ID number and Electronic Vaccination Data System (EVDS) code they received when they were vaccinated.

Users will be sent a one-time pin confirming the authenticity of the information they have provided. The pin can then be entered to access the final, digital Covid-19 vaccine certificate.

The department said that the QR code is not meant for general public use but will instead be used by specific entities that will use a specialised QR scanner.
