Name amendment on Vaxcert

Requested from DOH by B. Hayashi at 10:32 AM on Jun 28, 2022.
Purpose: Name amendment on Vaxcert for travel purposes
Date of Coverage: 07/03/2021 - 06/28/2022
Tracking no: #DOH-185286905351

Hayashi 10:32 AM, Jun 28, 2022

Hi, I would need to amend my name on the vaxcert for travel purposes. I am a dual citizen and because I used my PH birth cert for vax registration and vax card, my first name is slightly different from my foreign passport, it would not match my record if I travel abroad. I have all the necessary documents that can prove 1 and the same person. Please let me know how to proceed. Thank you.
