The Health and Wellness Ministry begins the rollout of digital vaccination cards today.
Vaccinated persons will be able to download the cards from the Ministry’s website.
This is part of efforts to streamline the vaccination programme and provide Jamaicans with a secure and universally accepted card.
The digital vaccination cards will be accessible by a mobile phone or other electronic devices and feature a quick response QR code to enable the information in the card to be validated. The card can be printed on standard letter-sized paper.
Health and Wellness Minister, Dr. Christopher Tufton highlights that the digital vaccination card will, among other things, provide for ease of travel.
To ensure that all Jamaicans have access to these cards, fixed vaccination sites will have a team of persons to support the public in the printing of cards on request.
Members of the public, on accessing the Ministry’s portal for the digital vaccination card must review their personal details to ensure that the correct information has been captured.
Where errors are identified, persons will have the opportunity to correct them by uploading the information to the website.
The Ministry says persons who do not find their vaccination records on the portal will also be able to upload their information.
