How to get your COVID-19 digital vaccination certificate

VaxCertPH is a portal and mobile app developed by the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) for the Department of Health (DOH) for the issuance of digital vaccination certificates for vaccinated individuals in the country that may be used for international and domestic travel. More so, it complies with the World Health Organization (WHO) Digital Documentation of COVID-19 Certificates (DDCC) guidelines. Now, here’s what you need to know about VaxCertPH and how you can get your COVID-19 digital vaccination certificate.

VaxCertPH is a free, self-service portal that can be accessed through its official website, where vaccinated citizens may acquire a copy of their VaxCertPH certificate. In addition, it is secured through public-private key cryptography with QR codes that are verifiable online or offline using the system.

Moreover, as mentioned, the VaxCertPH certificate is used to represent the COVID-19 vaccination status of a citizen of the Philippines and non-Filipino citizens vaccinated in the country. VaxCertPH is also said to adhere to WHO standards for digital vaccine certificates and should be recognized by international apps that certify vaccination and testing records.

VaxCertPH relies on the data submitted by local government units (LGUs) through the Vaccine Information Management System (VIMS). However, while the system is not yet available for all, the national government, through Resolution No. 146, will now require all LGUs that do not have electronic vaccine administration systems to adopt and use VaxCertPH for recording and organization of vaccination information.
