Vaccination certificate: the benefits of anti-COVID technology

EU has promoted the vaccination certificate, which is operating since July 1st this year.

With this document, you can accredit both having been vaccinated and having done a test with a negative result or having gone through the illness.

The main advantage of this document is that it facilitates movement between the different European Union countries for those who can accredit one of the three previous conditions. What benefits does it have? It removes any kind of quarantine or additional test in a country. Contrary to some opinions, it does not restrict the right to free movement, but it allows movement within the EU countries and guarantees people´s health.

It is a free and reliable document, and it is valid in the whole territory. It is issued in the national language of each State, and in English. The attached QR code contains the minimum essential information, as well as a digital seal to prove its authenticity.

Currently, the certificate is obtained in QR code format. It is necessary to download it in order to add it to Google Play. For this, we can use an application such as Pass2Pay. This app allows to create a card adapted to Google Play.

After downloading the application, you only need to download the document, which can be PDF format or a capture of the QR code as an image.
