Digital covid passport system fixed

Friday 17 December 2021

Islanders will be able to download vaccine certificates online once again after a security glitch was fixed.

A security issue allowing individuals to use dates of birth and Social Security numbers to access others’ vaccine passports and QR codes was detected just hours after the online platform went live on 20 October.

But the Government says the platform is now up and running. They assured islanders that "no data was compromised".

Users must now register with Yoti on a mobile and have a OneGov account in order to obtain a Covid Status Certificate (CSC) digitally.

Downloaded QR codes issued under the system should work in the UK and all EU member states.

They will expire after 30 days, at which point new QR codes can be re-issued, either by re-logging into the digital CSC portal or by contacting the Coronavirus helpline.

Secure paper CSCs demonstrating a booster dose are currently being posted to islanders who received a third covid jab before 8 December.

Those who received their booster dose after this date will be sent a certificate within two weeks of the booster being administered.
