People who are fully vaccinated soon won’t have to take the yellow vaccination card with them anymore. They can proof with their smartphone that their corona vaccination is complete. Baden-Württemberg begins using the digital vaccination card on Monday, June 14th. This was announced by the Ministry of Health. Starting on this day, vaccination centers hand out digital proof after the second vaccination. On it, there is a QR-code. The code can be read by the free CovPass-App or the Corona-Warn-App – both available in the app store – and uploaded onto the smartphone. The QR-code is also valid when printed out. People who already have had both their vaccinations will automatically receive the digital vaccination card by mail in the next weeks. People who were vaccinated by their general practitioner can receive proof at the pharmacy. This also applies to those who are recovered or who were not vaccinated in Baden-Württemberg. However, not all pharmacies are technologically prepared for this service yet. Participating pharmacies are to be found on
www.mein-apothekenmanager.de soon. “Doctor’s offices will be able to start issuing digital vaccination cards starting mid-July,” writes the Ministry. The yellow vaccination card still continues to be valid though.
