Request for Booster Vaccination Certificate

Requested from OWWA by I. Villaruel at 07:23 PM on May 15, 2023.
Purpose: Travel
Date of Coverage: 02/04/2022 - 02/04/2022
Tracking no: #OWWA-018338910716

Villaruel 07:23 PM, May 15, 2023

I am writing to request a copy of my booster vaccination certificate for the COVID-19 vaccine. I recently completed the recommended interval for the booster dose after receiving my initial vaccination earlier this year.

As I plan to travel internationally, it is essential for me to have the necessary documentation, including the booster vaccination certificate, to comply with entry requirements. Could you please provide me with an official booster vaccination certificate via email in PDF format?

Best Regards,
Fern Ann Lorraine Lagrama
