Response to your request

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance this Office does not have  the information you have requested.

Kindly request for proof of vaccination (i.e. vaccination card/vaccination certificate) from the country where you received your primary dose series and booster shot, provided it has all the necessary information (personal details and vaccination details).

For further assistance you may review the FAQ section of the eFOI site:
