The Department of Health (DOH) encouraged the public to request the new version of their vaccination certificate following updates in VaxCertPH.
“All citizens who generated their certificates before February 7, 2022 are urged to request the new version of VaxCertPH in the portal,” DOH said.
Vaccine certificates issued earlier than the said date will have outdated and unreadable QR code, the department explained.

Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) Acting Secretary Manny Caintic said the updates include added security features.
He noted that they are also in talks with the European Union to have bilateral acceptance between the Philippines and European countries’ vaccine certificates.
“So dito sa mga added features, pwede na siyang mabasa apart from the many countries that are already accepting our VaxCert,” Caintic told TeleRadyo.
Caintic added that local vaccination cards can still be used to enter establishments, in lieu of the vaccine certificate.
The public can generate their vaccination certificates at vaxcert.doh.gov.ph or through their respective local government units. VaxCert can be requested 48 hours after full vaccination.
