COVID-19Common QuestionWhy is a COVID-19 vaccine certificate required? A COVID Vaccine Certificate issued by government provides assurances to beneficiaries on vaccination and type. The provisional certificate also identifies the next due vaccination. The certificate can also be used to show proof to government agencies, especially if the beneficiary is traveling. Vaccination protects people from the disease and reduces the risk of them spreading it. In the future, certificates may be required for international travel and social interaction.
