The Swedish eHealth Agency works to ensure that more people receive vaccination certificates

At the moment, the Swedish eHealth Agency receives many questions if it is possible to get a vaccination certificate for those who have been vaccinated outside the EU or if they do not have a Swedish personal identity number or a coordination number. Here, the agency answers some of the most frequently asked questions.

What applies to people who have been vaccinated in Sweden and who do not have a Swedish personal identity number or a coordination number?

It will soon be possible to get a vaccination certificate if you do not have a Swedish personal identity number or a coordination number. The Swedish eHealth Agency works together with the regions and this solution will be launched as soon as possible. The technical part of the solution is complete, but some work remains before the regions can start reporting the basis for vaccination certificates to the Swedish eHealth Agency which can then issue these to the individuals concerned.

What applies to people who have received their first vaccine dose in Sweden and the second dose abroad?

If these people have received their second dose in any of the countries affiliated to the EU Digital COVID Certificate (DCC) solution, they should contact the vaccinator in that country. See the list of countries where the COVID certificates apply.

If they have received their second dose in a country not affiliated to the EU DCC, they should contact the vaccinator in the country where they received the second dose and ask that vaccinator for a vaccination certificate or other formal documentation showing name, date of birth, vaccine and the date of each vaccination.

What applies to Swedish citizens and others (who have a personal identity number or a coordination number) who reside permanently in Sweden but have been vaccinated in third countries?

The Swedish eHealth Agency has a government assignment to investigate and propose a solution for this group as well. The question of which national authority will verify the accuracy of vaccination certificates from third countries is prepared by the Government Offices and the ambition is to resolve this before the end of this year.
