I obtained a complete COVID-19 vaccine series at a doctors office in Germany. The doctor recorded the immunizations in my yellow International Certificate of Vaccination booklet. I was then able to take that yellow booklet along with my ID to a participating German pharmacy to get an EU Digital COVID Vaccination Certificate.
This certificate consists of a single sheet of A4 paper folded twice to make a 4 page card which contains some printed info about the vaccine(s) received and the person who received them along with a QR code that can be scanned by the CovPass-App or the Corona-Warn-App in order to load a copy of the vaccination record into a smartphone.
If you received your vaccines outside Canada, it’s still accepted but proof of vaccination must be uploaded digitally in ArriveCAN and must only be in French or English, or certified translation into French or English.
Presumably, if I have a EU Digital COVID Vaccination Certificate, I should be able to have this certificate be rendered in a digital format (such as a PDF) that can be uploaded to the ArriveCAN app. However, I can't find a way to do that. How can this be done?
In theory, I could scan the piece of paper received from the pharmacy however, not all information is rendered with the same orientation on the unfolded paper.
