MoH not endorsing vaccination e-cards or wristbands from third parties

The Ministry of Health has assured that it is continuing to collaborate with partner Ministries and other public sector entities to develop a COVID-19 vaccination e-certificate platform.

In a release on Friday evening, the MOH said “As part of the data verification process for this initiative, it said, members of the public may be contacted to confirm their information and, where necessary, to submit information to [email protected]

The Ministry also added that it has not endorsed the use of any digital system regarding proof of vaccination, and that only national Immunization Records (Vaccination Cards) and bona fide proof of vaccination from other countries are accepted.”

“The public is urged to source updates on COVID-19 matters from official sources only, such as the Ministry of Health’s website (www.health.gov.tt) and the Regional Health Authorities’ websites and social media pages, as well as the media conferences of various public sector entities,” it said.

This news comes as a few local organisations have offered products that could remove the need for a physical vaccination card in Safe Zones.

In a joint release, yesterday, Verify Vaccinated and Vaxx Pass Wrist Bands said they do not believe the presentation of physical vaccination cards at safe zones to be convenient or nor effective and “will not encourage people to regain normalcy.”
