You asked for Vaxcert.

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. 

Since you were vaccinated in Saudi Arabia and were not vaccinated in the Philippines, unfortunately, your vaccination records may not be accessible by the central database which holds the data of recipients of the COVID-19 vaccine from the Philippines. Kindly request for proof of vaccination (i.e. vaccination card/vaccination certificate) from the country where you received your primary dose series, 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:
