Briefly explained: The Vaccination Certificate Service

The Vaccination Certificate Service allows vaccination centres, medical practices, pharmacies and public health departments to issue an EU digital COVID certificate for Corona vaccination or recovery from Corona infection.

    Hand over the vaccination certificate

    The EU Digital COVID Certificate of vaccination or recovery is issued with a QR code. The vaccinated or recovered person can scan this QR code from your computer screen using the CovPass-App. You can also print the certificate, including the QR code, on paper and give this paper to the person.

    • What data do I need to record in the vaccination certificate service?

      Enter the following data in the input fields: First name(s), surname, date of birth.

      The name must be written exactly the same way it appears in the presented ID.

      Select the following fields: vaccine, date of vaccination and vaccine dose. Additional information such as the disease targeted, product, manufacturer, country, overall number of doses and issuer of the technical certificate are automatically added by the vaccination certificate service. No personal data is permanently stored at a central location.

    • As a company doctor, how can I use the vaccination certificate service?

      As a company doctor, you have two ways to issue certificates of vaccination and recovery:

      1. Interface to RKI certificate service from the separate standard software system. The specific technical requirements for this must be clarified with IBM Germany and are documented on GitHub GitHub.

      2. Preconfigured standard systems that already have an interface to the RKI certificate service.
        In both cases you need an official unique ID number as a vaccination clinic. You receive this through your professional association or from Bundesdruckerei.
