Anyone who has been vaccinated against Covid abroad and has entered the vaccination in the yellow “vaccination booklet” can have the proof transferred to a digital certificate. To do this, a picture of the vaccination pass and the identity card must be submitted online to the Federal Office of Public Health. The specified canton of residence is then responsible for checking and transferring it to a digital certificate. When the vaccination passports were checked by the Ausserrhoder certification authority, it turned out that twelve vaccination passports were forged. Certificates that had already been issued were subsequently made invalid, the communications service of the canton of Ausserrhoden announced on Tuesday morning.
