The Government of Bolivia, through the Ministry of Health and Sports (Minsalud), presented the new digital vaccination card against COVID-19 and the mobile application to verify its authenticity.
The Ministry of Health, through its head, Jeyson Auza, announced the launch of the mobile application "United against COVID", which will allow the population to digitally obtain a card that verifies their anti-COVID vaccination.
Thanks to the use of QR codes, the app will allow users to show their proof of vaccination safely and with high security standards. The director of the Agency for Electronic Government and Information and Communication Technologies (AGETIC), Vladimir Terán, explained that the app can verify the QR code even without an internet connection.
“If someone wants to generate their digital vaccination card, go to the page of the Ministry of Health to the United Against COVID application, to the Digital Citizenship page and start their process, which has three simple steps,” explained Minister Auza.
Users must first enter the Ministry of Health page (https://sus.minsalud.gob.bo/#vacuna). Then they must select the section "Nominal Electronic Vaccination Registry". And finally, the user must enter their ID number and date of birth, which will automatically generate the vaccination card.
To obtain verification digitally on mobile devices, the user must download the mobile application available at the following link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.agetic.coronavirusapp&fbclid=IwAR3LodZed2BZzbksQ7gwqNKBEL-brKv0wqO9Z83COVIztV5dYuObxQ3qqt8.
The minister explained that both the printed and digital document will come into force on January 1, 2022 throughout the country. "This is a process in which we have been working for months that allows us to give the Bolivian population certainty that the document they are presenting is valid, the QR will go directly to our database," he concluded.
Additionally, the certificate will be connected to the database of the National Registry of Epidemiological Surveillance.
