The COVID-19 Vaccine Program Act of 2021, also known as Republic Act 11525, requires the Department of Health to issue and verify certificates to everyone who has completed their vaccine.

VaxCert PH works with the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) and the Department of Health (DOH) to create a digital VaxCert PH verifier that meets to World Health Organization requirements.

You can use VaxCertPH to show your individual status with full COVID-19 vaccinations. This is particularly important when traveling overseas, especially when paired with the International Certification of Vaccination (ICV), which acts as a vaccine passport for both international and domestic travel.

How can I get a VaxCertPH?

You can apply online or contact your local government for help. Because VaxCerts can be used as travel passes, you should carry one with you along with your passport when traveling.
