SA has launched its digital Covid-19 vaccine certificate with QR code – here’s how it works.
- The South African Covid-19 Vaccine Certificate System was brought online on Tuesday.
- This follows an announcement by President Cyril Ramaphosa that South Africa would soon have a standardised proof of vaccination to “facilitate travel, [give] access to establishments and gatherings, and other forms of activity.”
- The system, which produces a digital copy of the physical vaccine card, is linked to the vaccination code issued by the Electronic Vaccination Data System.
- The department of health has not yet announced the platform’s launch, indicating that it may still be undergoing final live testing.
