Grafik zur Grundimmunisierung

A vaccinated person is a person who has proof of vaccination in German, English, French, Italian or Spanish in embodied or digital form, which confirms the existence of complete vaccination protection against the coronavirus and, in addition, is not suffering from typical symptoms of infection with the coronavirus.

The vaccinations on which the proof of vaccination is based must comply with the requirements specified in Section 22a (1) of the German Protection against Infection Act (IfSG) with regard to the following criteria:

a) vaccines used,
b) number of individual vaccinations required for complete vaccination protection,
c) interval times,
    ca) which must be waited after a vaccination for complete vaccination protection, and
    cb) the maximum time that may elapse between individual vaccinations.

Details of the various case histories for obtaining full vaccination protection can be found in this summary table.

It is sufficient to present the yellow vaccination certificate or the digital vaccination certificate.

The digital proof of vaccination is created for each vaccination carried out (for first and second vaccinations). The QR code can be scanned e.g. with the CovPass app or the Corona warning app and stored as proof of vaccination.

All persons who are vaccinated in Rhineland-Palatinate via vaccination teams or in vaccination centers are automatically sent a letter per vaccination including a personalized QR code for the digital vaccination card and they do not have to do anything.

In case you have not received a Digital Immunization Certificate or need a replacement, you can have your Digital Immunization Certificate reissued here.

Those who received their vaccination at a doctor's office will also need to contact the doctor's office or a participating pharmacy again for the Digital Proof of Immunization.

It is also possible to request that the certificate for the digital proof of vaccination be sent again by calling the state's Corona hotline at 0800 / 57 58 100 (Mon - Fri 8:00 am - 6:00 pm).

Questions and answers about the digital proof of vaccination can be found on the website of the Federal Ministry of Health:

Please note that the link to the QR code sent by email is only valid for 72 hours. If this has expired, you can have your Digital Certificate of Vaccination issued again here.

This is only possible if you have been vaccinated in a vaccination center in Rhineland-Palatinate or by a mobile vaccination team in a facility in Rhineland-Palatinate. The delivery of the vaccination certificate can only be automated if you enter your data correctly in the form and it matches the data of your vaccination documentation in the system. If this is not the case, the processing of the request may take a few days.

The following technical problems may occur in connection with the digital vaccination certificate:

  1. the certificate contains the data documented at the vaccination center. If the data in the documentation is incorrect, it will also appear incorrectly on the vaccination certificate.
  2. if you cannot read the QR code provided with your smartphone, this is often due to the end device. If necessary, an update from the manufacturer of the corresponding app must first be provided here.
  3. the QR code will be sent to the person whose mail address has been stored in the data record during online registration.

In these cases, as well as for other inquiries or problems, please write to us at the contact details provided.

According to the IfSG, the protective vaccination must be documented in the yellow vaccination card or in a vaccination certificate (vaccination documentation). In the Rhineland-Palatinate vaccination centers as well as in the doctors' practices, the standard insert sheet of the Rhineland-Palatinate Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians on your proof of COVID-19 vaccination can be used for this purpose. It has the same documentation significance as an entry in the vaccination card.

Stamps or official seals are not necessary. Documentation that includes the date of vaccination, name and batch name of the vaccine, name of the disease vaccinated against, and the name and address of the person or agency responsible for administering the vaccination is important.

The yellow vaccination card or the insert for it is also recognized in other countries and is also provided in this form in other parts of Germany.

We would also like to draw your attention to the digitally readable COVID-19 vaccination certificate, which is issued to all persons with a personalized QR code and is valid as proof of vaccination EU-wide, both as a paper printout and digitized in the app.

In the Rhineland-Palatinate vaccination centers, the standard insert sheet (Replacement certificate) on your proof of COVID-19 vaccination can be used. It has the same documentary value as an entry in the vaccination card.

We ask that you keep the insert sheet in your immunization record carefully.

If the insert is damaged or lost, a replacement can be requested here.  An insert sheet will then be mailed or delivered to you.

Through the Corona hotline of the country it is also possible by phone at 0800 / 57 58 100 (Mon - Fri 8:00 - 18:00) to request a resend of the vaccination certificate.

We would also like to draw your attention to digital proof of vaccination.

The issuance of a digital vaccination certificate is also possible for the booster vaccination. All persons who have received their booster vaccination in Rhineland-Palatinate via vaccination teams will be issued the certificate with corresponding QR code after the vaccination and additionally sent by mail or letter. Issuance of the certificate is also possible in pharmacies. The QR code can be scanned e.g. with the CovPass app or the Corona warning app and deposited as digital proof of vaccination.
