All citizens who have been vaccinated against COVID-19 and have entered data into the system will be issued a vaccine passport. Vaccine passports are technically valid for 12 months. After the expiration date, the system will automatically generate a new QR code.

If there is no data on the system, no vaccine passport will be issued.

Currently, there are still about 80 million COVID-19 vaccine injections with incorrect information on citizen identification or have not been entered into the system. Recently, the Ministry of Health has sent a document to the People's Committees of provinces and cities to request the Department of Health to direct the Department of Health. The Health Department cooperates with the provincial police to review, verify and enter additional information. 

Through the current review and inspection, this has not been completed by the provinces, so people with incorrect information will not be able to issue vaccine passports. 

The system only issues vaccine passports to residents who have their information verified with the National Database on Population.

For people who have been vaccinated, if their information has not been updated on the system, they need to contact the injection facility or reflect on the information on the portal. The Ministry of Health will strengthen the directing and urging facilities to handle people's complaints to ensure the interests of the people.
