DICT sought to start issuing COVID-19 vaccine certificates by August 2021.

The Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) sought to start issuing COVID-19 vaccine certificates by August 2021.

DICT sought to start issuing COVID-19 vaccine certificates by August 2021.

On Saturday, the Department of Information and Communications Technology said that it was looking to start issuing COVID-19 vaccine certificates to fully vaccinated individuals by early August.

DICT Undersecretary Manny Caintic called on local government units (LGUs) to hasten the encoding of their constituent’s COVID-19 vaccination information in the agency’s verification database system.

Caintic said in an interview on state-run PTV’s Laging Handa briefing that LGUs have until July 31, 2021, to complete the encoding of vaccinees’ information on VIMS (Vaccine Information Management System).

Kung mai-submit na ng mga LGU ang kanilang mga listahan come July 31 ay pwede na tayo mag-issue ng vaccine certificates at pwede ‘yan gamitin for international travel. By August, early August, pwede na natin ilunsad ang vaccine certificate para sa ganon, ‘pag mag-request ang isang tao ng vaccine certificate andoon ang record niya most likely,” Caintic said.

Caintic also said that the issuance of COVID-19 vaccine certificates complied with the World Health Organization’s (WHO) digital certificate standards, recognized by several countries.

He also said that the agency’s partners for the COVID-19 vaccination status verification system were the World Health Organization and the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

According to Caintic, COVID-19 vaccination cards issued by LGUs can be used for domestic travel but the COVID-19 vaccine certificates issued by the Department of Information and Communications Technology were a certification from the Republic of the Philippines that a person was fully vaccinated, which will be recognized by many countries.

Moreover, Caintic said that the COVID-19 vaccine certificates to be used by the Department of Information and Communications Technology can’t be faked as the quick response code to be generated was unique to every individual.
