Will I be issued an immunisation passport?

Information about your vaccination will be entered in the health information system where you can see it yourself from your electronic health record and print out the e-immunisation passport if necessary. If you wish, you can also have the information entered in your paper immunisation passport. We do not issue new immunisation passports on site. 


What to do when I do not have possibility to create the certificates at the Patient Portal?

The service centres of the Social Insurance Board are accepting applications for creating EU COVID certificates by Estonians and foreigners who have been issued the Estonian ID-Code, who do not have the possibility to create the certificates by themselves at the Patient Portal (digilugu.ee).

EU COVID certificates which involve proof of vaccination, proof of a negative coronavirus test result or proof of having had COVID-19, shall be issued in the service centres of the Social Insurance Board.

The foreigners who turn to the Social Insurance Board for getting a COVID certificate, must present their Estonian ID-code and a document of identification. The application form may be prefilled and printed. Please take the application to the service centre of your convenience. The EU COVID certificate will be sent to the e-mail of the applicant within three working days. The service is free for everyone.
