Today the world continues to grapple with one of the deadliest pandemics in its history, “Covid-19″. Despite so many deaths, vaccines have been created to stop the virus and help slow its spread and prevent more deaths. That’s is why Europe has created the European Digital Vaccination Certificate.
In Europe, many member countries have already vaccinated the vast majority of their population, which brings several benefits to the citizens of this continent.
Being vaccinated against Covid-19 brings many benefits to Europeans. First of all, you must obtain a digital European vaccination certificate to enjoy those benefits. This certificate entitles you to a long list of activities that normally enjoyed before the coronavirus spread.
The European digital vaccination certificate and the European COVID Digital Certificate, are recognized within the European Union by all member states. This will allow citizens of any country of this continent to move more safely and efficiently.
How to obtain the European COVID Digital Certificate?
The certificate is completely free and automatic. The way to obtain it always depends on each member state since they have different ways to provide it. There are three ways to obtain the certificate:
- If you are vaccinated.
- If you have a negative PCR test.
- If you prove that, you have had Covid-19 and have immunity to it.
The certificate has a QR format and can be obtained from a mobile device. The certificate is available in English and Spanish. The certificate is effective as of July 1 and is valid for one year. Thanks to this, European citizens can enjoy travel and activities that used to be restricted before the vaccines were introduced.
It should be noted that the certificate allows you to travel in any country of the European Union but it does not guarantee that it will be valid outside this continent.
The certificate can be obtained electronically and through laboratories, and private centres where they are performed, as long as they are adhered to the EU COVID Digital Certificate system, and have been authorized by the Regional Ministry of Universal Health and Public Health.
