The EU corona certificate was taken into use 14 July. Helsinkians get their corona certificates in an electronic format from the national My Kanta service (kanta.fi). The certificates can be saved e.g. on your phone or laptop.
The EU's corona certificate is visible at My Kanta once you have received a coronavirus vaccine. The certificate shows the production name of the latest vaccine, the date it was given and the number of doses. If you have received two vaccines, only the name of the latter one will show.

If the certificate is not visible in Kanta or you are not using Kanta
Some of those who have been vaccinated, tested or had the infection have not received the information in Kanta. We apologise for the inconvenience.
Many people are asking for the certificates and this causes congestion at the health care services. If the certificate is not necessary, please wait patiently. The information can be added to Kanta with a delay.
If necessary, you can ask for the city’s vaccination certificate from the vaccination point. Missing or incorrect information on the EU’s certificate can be corrected by calling the appointment booking for coronavirus vaccines, tel. 09 310 46300. Information about the vaccine will show in My Kanta within about five days.
The certificate of a negative test result can be found at Kanta as well as MyCovidData website (www.koronatietoni.fi/en/, HUS) A certificate of a negative test result can also be requested at your own health station, for example through Maisa.
A certificate of a coronavirus infection can be requested at the Epidemiologic operations, tel. 09 310 51222, or at your own health station. An isolation decision can also be used as a certificate of a coronavirus infection.
The City of Helsinki provides the certificates in Finnish, Swedish and English.
Does the certificate work during travel?
