Capital region municipalities do not issue EU Covid certificates for vaccines administered abroad

Published: 12.11.2021 8.45

The cities of Espoo, Helsinki and Vantaa do not issue EU Covid certificates for vaccines administered abroad. If you need an EU Covid certificate, we ask you to contact the place where you received your vaccine.

Some municipalities in the capital region do not have the technical means to provide Covid certificates for persons who were vaccinated abroad. Currently, the capital region municipalities only issue certificates for vaccines administered by the municipalities’ own health care services.

If you were vaccinated abroad, our health care staff can add this information to the online patient information system, but we cannot issue a related Covid certificate.

The certificate is issued by the country or municipality where the vaccine was administered

The EU Covid certificate is issued by the country or Finnish municipality where the vaccine was administered. In Finland, the EU Covid certificate is only issued for vaccines administered in Finland. 

Please request your certificate from the country where you were vaccinated. A Covid certificate issued by an EU country is accepted by all other EU countries as long as the certificate complies with the common practices. The EU Covid certificate serves as a Covid passport in Finland.
