Lacaya 01:12 PM, May 23, 2022

Good afternoon! I would like to ask information of this inquiry:

How can my brother get his vaccination certificate if he was vaccinated in Iran? We tried to go to the link provided by the vaccination personnel from Iran, unfortunately, we cannot go through the website given. He is trying to get his booster shot against COVID 19 in Cavite, however, he was asked for his vaccination card to which he cannot provide yet because of the situation mentioned above.
 I am hoping for an immediate response.

 Thank you and God bless!
