We received a letter from a reader in which he drew our attention to the fact that he had detected an error in the application proving the vaccination. The problem is also significant because if the vaccination application does not work properly, we may even get stuck at the border and our vacation will fail.
The Electronic Health Services (EESZT) has created a free downloadable application to make life easier for both providers and users. This allows caterers, entertainment venues, cinemas, and other providers to quickly and easily verify that the client has already received one of the coronavirus vaccinations.
For example, people find it useful because their phone is always on hand, and you do not have to keep your ID card with you. Also, you do not have to wait for the plastic card to be mailed after vaccination, you can immediately enjoy the benefits of those who have been vaccinated. According to the information available on koronavirus.gov.hu, these are the steps for using the application:
The European Digital COVID Certificate will be available from July.
This certificate has also been available in the Hungarian application since the last update. Our reader encountered a problem in this regard when trying to test the downloaded QR code but, according to the EU Covid Reader, the code was invalid. There have been issues with the app in the past, which the creators have been constantly improving due to feedback.
For a long time, the application did not show the type of vaccine, however, this problem has since been fixed. The problem of our reader has been discovered by several Hungarian and foreign citizens. Hopefully, the authorities will correct this mistake soon. Porfolio.hu advises that those who have an urgent matter should download and print it on the EESZT’s Retail Portal, or get an appointment at the Government Window or their GP. With a paper-based certificate, everyone can be sure that they do not have to worry about crossing the border.
