My Vaccine Pass

You can request a My Vaccine Pass now if you are aged 12 or over and have had 2 doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine in New Zealand.

You will also be able to request a pass if you have:

  • been vaccinated overseas with an approved vaccine

  • a medical exemption.

People under the age of 12 years and 3 months are not required to show proof of vaccination.

Your My Vaccine Pass will include your name, date of birth and a QR code. You can save it on a digital device, like your phone, or print a physical copy.
