QR is an acronym for a square pixelated code that stores information such as web addresses, app download links, and bank account details. The placement of the code depends on the data stored there. QR codes can be easily scanned with your smartphone using scanning software or applications. Most modern smartphones have built-in QR code scanners and apps. This is the same widely used technology employed by the Government of Nepal to issue Covid vaccination certificates to facilitate storage and access to information about vaccinations.
After vaccination, beneficiaries will receive a card detailing the date and information regarding the Covid vaccine received. After full vaccination, beneficiaries can apply for a digital certificate with a QR code. Provincial and local health authorities must provide these certificates upon request.
