After vaccination

Most vaccination sites will give you a card containing the basic information about the administration of the first shot (the date, the name of the vaccine, the batch …) and the date of the second shot after you have received your first dose of the vaccination.

After the second shot, you will receive a certificate of vaccination (sample). The certificate has an international identifier and it will therefore be possible to verify your vaccination abroad.

Every citizen can find a record of their vaccination on the ocko.uzis.cz vaccination portal and can also display and download their certificate of vaccination at the same time.
