Whether you are looking to travel or applying for a job that requires proof of Covid-19 vaccination, you can now easily get a COVID-19 Vaccination Certificate online. Uganda’s Ministry of Health has created a convenient online self-service portal for this found at epivac.health.go.ug/certificates.
When you complete your Covid-19 dose, the Uganda government will issue you a vaccination certificate that confirms you’ve been inoculated. This is issued 14 days after you receive your last dose. The Covid-19 vaccination certificate contains your basic details such as name, age, gender. It also has details of the vaccination doses like date, batch number, manufacturer, dose, vaccination site etc.
According to the Ministry, to generate your COVID-19 Vaccination Certificate;
- Enter the Identification ID No you used during vaccination (e.g. NIN or any other registered alternative ID you registered during COVID-19 vaccination e.g Passport Number, Employee ID, Driving Permit, Local Council ID, etc. as written on the Vaccination Card) and the last 6 digits of your registered phone number during vaccination.
- Once your vaccination record is verified meeting all the certification requirements, your certificate will be generated and downloadable as a PDF file that you can directly print or save as an electronic copy.
