If you're already fully vaccinated against COVID-19, you may use DICT's electronic certificate called VaxCertPH as proof for health and other purposes in the future.

DICT developed the app in compliance with international standards

The World Health Organization (WHO) had finalized the guidance and accompanying technical specifications for vaccination certificates last July.

The global organization proposed the use of digital certificates that documents a person's current vaccination status. In this way, the person's COVID-19-related health data can be digitally documented via an electronic certificate. This can be used in the continuity of care or as proof of vaccination for purposes other than health care.

In the Philippines, there will be a web and mobile app that can be used for issuing vaccination certificates for individuals who completed their dose.

DICT Secretary Gregorio "Gringo"  Honasan II said, 

Even prior to WHO’s issuance of the standards for vaccination certificates, your DICT has already been working on the VaxCertPH in coordination with the DOH. With the new guidelines, we will continue to improve upon the current system to comply with worldwide standards. 

The VaxCertPH is created by DICT for the Department of Health that relies on the data from LGUs through the Vaccine Information Management System (VIMS). Therefore, VaxCertPH is highly reliant on the quality of data collected in the VIMS.

After weeks of training LGU operators all over the country, the "VaxCertPH" will be ready to go live. The DICT did not mention the specific date the app will be up.
