The Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) paved the way to develop a centralized database of all vaccination lists from different local government units (LGUs) in the country. The database is called the Vaccination Information Management System (VIMS), or the VaxCertPH portal.
Users planning to travel abroad may now download and save or carry a printed copy of an authenticated vaccination certificate through this online portal.
On September 6, the Philippine government begins implementing the digital COVID-19 vaccination certificate for a selected group only, including overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) and residents from Metro Manila and Baguio City who are set to travel abroad.
Check out below on how to register and/or request your digital vaccination certificate via VaxCertPH. Note: Only OFWs and residents from Metro Manila and Baguio City can request the digital certification on the platform.

STEP 1: Go to https://vaxcert.doh.gov.ph/ and click ‘Continue‘ to request a Vaccination Certificate.
STEP 2: Review the data privacy before ticking the ‘I have read and agreed to the Privacy Statement‘ box. Click ‘Continue‘ to proceed.
STEP 3: Answer whether or not you are traveling abroad in the next two weeks. Then, enter your personal information and vaccination details, such as the date and place. Click ‘Next‘.
STEP 4: Review your information.
STEP 5: Once done, save your QR Code. Take a screenshot or print it.
If your vaccination record is not found, select ‘Continue‘ for the system to assist you. The error may be due to your vaccination record’s details may have been incorrectly registered or have not yet been updated in the VaxCertPH system.
Upload your vaccination card and one (1) government-issued ID. Also, provide an email address and contact number, then click ‘Submit Request‘.
For those who have no internet access or gadget (e.g. smartphone, laptop, etc.), fully vaccinated individuals may visit a registration booth located in the city hall. Just bring two (2) government-issued IDs and your vaccination card. – WhatALife.ph
