Starting on Friday 11 June, the plastic QR encoded photo vaccination cards will be rolled out as a replacement for the blue vaccination card. The replacement card will capture the same information written on the blue card, but in a computer-readable format with your photograph as an added feature.
Depending on when you received your second dose, you will be eligible to receive the replacement plastic card after a certain date. The following chart shows when you are eligible:
|2nd Dose Received||Eligible Collection Dates|
|Before April 21st||June 11th, 15th-17th|
|Between April 21st and May 4th||June 21st - 25th|
|Between May 5th and May 21st||June 28th - 30th|
|Between May 24th and May 28th||July 1st, 2nd & 5th|
|Between June 1st and June 15th||July 6th - July 16th|
|Between June 16th - June 30th||July 19th & July 30th|
|Between July 1st and July 15th||August 3rd & 4th, August 9th - 13th|
|Between July 16th and July 30th||August 16th - August 27th|
The cards will be issued at the Electoral Office (across from the Police Station), Monday to Friday between the hours of 9 am – 2 pm.
Once you confirm the dates you are eligible to receive your replacement card, you will need a photo ID e.g. passport, and your blue vaccination card (if received already) to the Electoral Office.
No, the blue card with the Ministry of Health stamp is a verified certificate and has all the information you may need to show proof of vaccination including access to your digital record
The plastic card is a replacement card – the blue card with the Ministry of Health stamp is a verified certificate and has all the information you may need to show proof of vaccination. If you still feel you would like the plastic card before you travel and your travel date is before your scheduled eligibility date, there will be a separate line at the Electoral office to accommodate persons with proof of paid travel reservations from 2-3 pm daily. You will need to bring your proof of paid travel reservations with you.
