From now on, anyone who is vaccinated against Covid-19 can ask a medical professional to give him a vaccination certificate in paper format, on which there is a QR code to the right of the document, which must be scanned using a phone through the “My Book” in AllAntiCovid (1).

In a conclusion published on May 3, the Scientific Council was in favor of skipping health, but was used “on a temporary and exclusive basis.” According to a government advisory body chaired by Jean-François Delfrassy, ​​”this could allow the population to return to normal life by minimizing the risks of contracting the Sars-CoV-2 virus.”

Health card digital format is considered safer

Members of the Academic Council also consider the digital format of the medical passport to be safer than the paper version. “The use of the digital format allows the user not to see certain information and medical data concerning him and, in particular, the source of obtaining the health pass. The use and transfer of the paper format to a third party does not allow hiding personal and medical data that the controller of the medical passport should not know,” – they explain.

In addition to the vaccination certificate, the Certificates and Booklet section of the TousAntiCovid app also allows you to electronically store your test results (RT-PCR and antigen tests). It is practical to have the results and proof of vaccination on hand when traveling to certain countries where proof of a recent negative test result or proof of vaccination is required.
