During the week from 7.6.2021, the automatic sending of certificates to emails will be suspended and the Public Vaccination Portal will be used for obtaining the certificates https://ocko.uzis.cz, optionally it will be available upon request from the health service provider of the vaccination or test. After 7.6.2021, informational email will send, including details where the said person can pick up their certificate.

 

My contact details have changed. Can I update them myself?

Yes, if you need to change the registered email or mobile phone number, you can do it at the Public Vaccination Portal (the options how to log in are described above). Simply click on the button “Edit contact details”, change the information and confirm by clicking “Update”.

 

In my personal card there is a vaccination or test certificate missing. How is it possible?

If a certificate is missing, verify over the phone first whether the relevant medical facility (vaccination center, test site, or general practitioner) entered your personal data correctly.  Incorrectly entered personal data is the most common reason why some documents are missing.

 

Entering patient’s contact information – email and phone number

The data is entered into ISIN by the health service provider who makes the record of the vaccination, test and issues the confirmation. Only this provider can verify the patient’s identity and thus enter into the system their valid personal and contact information. IHIS CR is not able to change contact details based on a telephone or email request.

 

When and how can I view the certificate and print it?

After 1.6.2021 a Czech citizen can pick up a newly issued certificate (newly, not only a certificate of vaccination, but also of a past disease or taken test) according to the above-mentioned manual. This option will be available for foreigners in the week from 7.6.2021. It will be possible to view the certificate already after the first dose.

 

How will the exchange of old vaccination certificates to new ones occur after 1.6.2021?

After 1.6.2021, Czech citizens will be able to obtain new certificates at the Public Vaccination Portal https://ocko.uzis.cz (original certificates will no longer be available here, only new certificates). This option will be available to foreigners in the week from 7.6.2021.

After scanning the code of an old certificate, a unique URL will appear, it will be possible to download a new certificate under this URL (i.e. it is a 1:1 exchange) for any person who holds the certificate. It is a temporary solution without the need for further authentication (verification).

 

How will verification of a certificate’s validity occur?

Certificates validity is being verified by the verifier application. The application will be available approximately from the middle of June 2021. After reading a QR code from a certificate the application connects to the back-end IHIS CR and verifies the currently set validation regulations and, based on their assessment, the application shows information on the certificate’s status (valid/invalid). It is a temporary solution for validity verification of a certificate.

 

What are other future plans regarding options of obtaining certificates?

An option when certificates could be obtained at a Czechpoint is being prepared (indicative date for implementation is summer 2021).
