HÀ NỘI — The latest update of PC-COVID, Việt Nam’s mobile app for COVID-19 prevention and control, allows users to submit their own vaccination information and stores certificates in a wallet. 

In the new version, users can fill in their vaccination information and upload a photo of the paper certificate themselves, and the self-declared form will then be saved on the app with the note ‘self-reported’. 

Previously, many people reported that their vaccination status on the app was not correct or not updated. As boosters shots begin to roll out, the newest dose has trouble showing up on the app, even though medical staff have entered data into the system. 

Some people said that even though they had receive three COVID-19 vaccine shots, none appear on the app, which is frequently required to enter events and buildings.

The new feature is therefore a response to the need of the people, said the app developer. 

The app now also includes a ‘paper wallet’, which will save photos of an individual’s COVID-related documents, including the vaccination certificate, test result, recovery certificate, and travel permits.

The app developer also said that with these new features, people don’t have to physically have their paperwork with them all the time, and the app also now addresses the issue where vaccination facilities have yet to update the correct information of the vaccinated people.

It is noted that the self-declaration is for reference only, and the users are solely responsible for the information they provide.

Statistics from the National Technology Centre for COVID-19 Prevention and Control revealed that the PC-COVID app now has over 33.5 million users, most of them are in Bình Dương, Quảng Ninh, HCM City, Đà Nẵng and Bắc Ninh. — VNS
