Hi! I would like to request to correct the surname in my Covid-19 Vaccination card. The name listed is Mary Percyphone Forster Masamayor (my ex-husband’s surname) since they copied it from my medical records. But my present name is my maiden name, Mary Percyphone Erojo Forster. I will be needing the correct card for my vaxcert for travel purposes. Kindly let me know how this issue can be resolved.
