COVID-19 vaccinations performed abroad shall be registered in the E-health system in the Republic of Latvia if the person is entitled to a state-paid Covid-19 vaccination in Latvia. If a person has received a valid digital certificate in another European country, there is no need to register the fact of vaccination in E-health system.

  • COVID-19 Vaccine Spikevax (Moderna); 
  • COVID-19 Vaccine Janssen; 
  • Biontech-Pfizer Comirnaty.

Data entry into the E-Health system enables the citizen to authenticate at the website www.covid19sertifikats.lv using one of the secure means of access and to create their digital COVID-19 certificate.
