According to Nograles, the DICT was currently working on a common digital ID that would serve as proof of a person’s vaccination against COVID-19.

Nograles’ statement came as the national government encouraged the public to be vaccinated against the coronavirus disease, especially with the Delta and Delta Plus COVID-19 variants posing as new threats.

Nograles said in an interview with ANC’s “Headstart” this week that the DICT was working on the common digital ID that would have a unique QR code for every Filipino.

What we want really is a QR code. The digital vaccination ID card will be very important,” Nograles said.

Local government units (LGUs) were currently issuing ID cards to their constituents who got inoculated against COVID-19.

In Manila, the basic pieces of information included in the ID card were the following: person’s full name, birthday, barangay, and date of registration to the COVID-19 vaccination program.

Other pieces of information about the vaccination include the date of first and second vaccination, the COVID-19 vaccine brand, and the name of the person who gave the COVID-19 vaccine, among others.

Also, the ID card showed a QR code and the person’s photo as well.

Trade Secretary Ramon Lopez said early this month that the national government will be launching a digital COVID-19 vaccination ID for those who had been vaccinated against the coronavirus disease.
