What is Germany’s digital vaccination pass?
The digital vaccination record (der digitale Impfnachweis/Impfpass) is an additional option for documenting vaccinations that the German government is developing. Vaccinated people will be able to store information such as the date of their jab, and the type of vaccine they received, on their smartphones.
As well as a vaccination certificate, people will also be able to store their Covid test records to show if they have tested negatively for Covid or have recovered from an infection.
It is intended to make it easier to use for showing proof of immunity when visiting events, the hairdresser or during travel, for example. But it is not mandatory.
When is it happening?
The German Health Ministry said it would be rolled out “step by step” from Thursday June 10th.
Starting in July, people with Germany’s digital pass will also be able to use it for cross-border travel as part of the EU-wide ‘Covid health pass’ scheme.
