Please consult the Health Directorate website for the latest information regarding the COVID Certificate.

For people who consented to their vaccination data being passed on for the creation of the vaccination certificate when registering in the cantonal vaccination tool (VacMe), the COVID certificate is automatically generated after your second vaccination dose. Once your certificate has been generated, you will be notified by SMS and the certificate will be available for download on your personal VacMe profile.

Change Request for the COVID Certificate

If you need to make an administrative change to your COVID Certificate, for example if you need to change the spelling of your first name, this change can be requested at zh.ch/covid-certificate.

Vaccination with Vector Vaccine Janssen

All persons aged 18 and over can make an appointment for vaccination with this vaccine directly in the cantonal vaccination tool. Only one dose needs to be administered and vaccine protection is given three weeks after vaccination. Accordingly, the certificate is valid on the 22nd day after vaccination.

Booster Vaccination

Residents of the Canton of Zürich who are 16 years of age or older will be personally contacted by the Health Directorate via SMS or letter and invited to book an appointment for the COVID-19 Booster if

  • they have been fully vaccinated for at least four months and

Appointments for the booster vaccination can be made via the cantonal vaccination tool or the vaccination hotline 0848 33 66 11. In addition, you are always welcome to come by spontaneously (as a walk-in) for your booster.
