EU coronavirus vaccination certificates are available through My Kanta Pages as of Tuesday 22 June. The vaccination certificate is part of the EU-wide coronavirus certificate (EU Digital COVID Certificate). Test result certificates and certificates of recovery from the coronavirus disease will be available through My Kanta Pages in mid-July.

Your national coronavirus vaccination certificate will be automatically replaced by an EU certificate in the My Kanta Pages service. If you have saved your national certificate on your phone or printed it through My Kanta Pages, you should replace it with the EU certificate as it is more known in EU countries.

The coronavirus vaccination certificate is already available to more than 95% of those vaccinated in Espoo. There have been some problems with recording and transferring vaccination information and therefore some people are not yet able to get their vaccination certificates through My Kanta Pages. In the future, certificates will be available through My Kanta Pages within five days of vaccination.

Instructions on how to find your certificate through My Kanta Pages

At the moment, the EU coronavirus vaccination certificate is only available through My Kanta Pages.

If you cannot access My Kanta Pages

You can authorise another person who is 18 or older to use My Kanta Pages on your behalf if you are unable to use the service.

People who do not use My Kanta Pages or authorise another person to use it on their behalf can request a different type of coronavirus vaccination certificate by phone. You can get a certificate by calling Espoo’s coronavirus helpline, tel. 09 816 34600, Mon–Fri 7:00–18:00 and Sat–Sun 9:00–15:00. Please note that this is not an EU coronavirus vaccination certificate. Our health care staff will be able to print EU coronavirus vaccination certificates in July.

The certificate will be sent to you by post within approximately two weeks.

EU certificate of a negative test result and recovery from the coronavirus disease available in July

The aim is to make the other EU coronavirus certificates (i.e. the certificate of a negative coronavirus test result and certificate of recovery from the coronavirus disease) available through My Kanta Pages as of 14 July.

The content and accuracy of the EU certificates can be checked using a digital scanning application as of 1 July, for example when travelling.

All EU coronavirus certificates are free of charge and contain information in Finnish, Swedish and English.

The aim is to facilitate safe and free movement

The EU coronavirus vaccination certificate can be used when crossing borders within the EU. The purpose of the certificate is to facilitate safe and free movement. Member states decide themselves if they want to use the certificate for other purposes.

More information about travel guidelines and restrictions in EU countries is available on the Re-open EU website.
