Zimbabwe decentralise QR code Covid-19 vaccination cards activation

Zimbabwe has announced the decentralisation of a secure COVID-19 Vaccination Certificate system which provides electronic authentication of the vaccination record.


The Ministry of Health and Child Care (MOHCC), as part of its COVID-19 Vaccination roll out effort, created a secure COVID-19 Vaccination Certificate which provided for electronic authentication of the vaccination record.

Due to the threat posed by the COVID-19 Pandemic and the need to urgently rollout the COVID-19 vaccination program, the latest COVID 19 Vaccination Certificates were issued with pre-printed QR Codes that are blank and require to be activated by loading electronic data onto them.

The Ministry has now commenced an exercise to activate these QR codes which are now a requirement for travel to some countries.

However, given that the number of people who have received at least the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine to date is now exceeding 5 million, we are currently reserving this functionality to individuals traveling out of the country while plans are being made to open this up to the greater public.

The Ministry of Health & Child Care, for the convenience of the public, has begun the process of decentralising the activation process for travellers and will be releasing updated lists of activation points countrywide on a regular basis.

Members of the public are advised to approach the following Ministry of Health and Child Care offices or points for the activation of their cards:
