PETALING JAYA: The Special Committee for Ensuring Access to Covid-19 Vaccine Supply (JKJAV) has announced that there is no physical Covid-19 vaccination certificate.

In a post on Twitter today (July 23), JKJAV stated that proof of Covid-19 vaccination is only available in two forms, namely the digital certificate in MySejahtera and the vaccination card that is given out to members of the public at Covid-19 immunisation centres (PPV).

It added that users will soon be able to print the digital certificate.

This came after a user on Twitter posted a video on July 22 in which Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba announced that individuals who have completed two Covid-19 vaccine doses will be given a vaccination badge.

The video has gone viral with over 600,000 views, with some users expressing concerns about the badge saying that it’s wasteful and unnecessary.

The recording, however, may have caused confusion among users on social media as it is from a press conference that took place in March, prior to the government announcing that the Covid-19 vaccination certificate will only be available through MySejahtera.

National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme coordinating minister Khairy Jamaluddin said in July that only the Health Ministry should issue digital certificates.

“There cannot be any other digital certificate other than the one that appears in MySejahtera,” he said.
