My Covid Record website launches
Kiwis can now view their COVID-19 vaccination records and request My Vaccine Pass through the website My Covid Record.
“We’re listening to whānau, communities and business who want to see a return to a more normal life as soon as possible. My Covid Record is one tool we’re putting in place to help enable us to open up New Zealand,” says Michael Dreyer – Ministry of Health Group Manager, National Digital Services.
“Being fully vaccinated will help us have a classic Kiwi summer. We’re making it as easy as possible for people to prove they’ve been vaccinated to make that happen.”
My Vaccine Pass is an official record of a person’s COVID-19 vaccination status and is a ticket to enjoy the extra freedoms that will come with the COVID-19 Protection Framework. The pass will mean people will be able to do the things they love, like going to concerts and music festivals, nights out at bars and restaurants, and going to the gym and sports events.
My Vaccine Pass has a QR code that can be scanned upon arrival at a venue. The pass can be downloaded to your personal phone and stored in your Apple or Google Wallet, or may be printed out.
To get a My Vaccine Pass, people will need to be fully vaccinated or be one of the very small number of Kiwis who has received a medical exemption. The pass will be issued by the Ministry of Health.
Proof of a booster shot is not required at this stage to be able to access the pass.
- Visit My Covid Record from your smartphone or computer, to sign up and get your Vaccine Pass. You can also call 0800 222 478 to request a pass.
A separate International COVID-19 Vaccination Certificate can also be requested if you need one. This provides proof of your vaccination status in order to enter overseas countries. The application process for this certificate may take up to 14 days. People are advised to prepare all their vaccine evidence from overseas and get their applications in as soon as possible
COVID-19 test results will be available on My Covid Record.
