How to add your vaccine pass to your phone's home screen

The simplest way to prove your vaccination is by saving it in a digital wallet on your phone. In addition, you can save even more time by creating a shortcut that immediately opens your pass. Here's how, starting from the moment you receive your vaccine pass in an email from the Ministry of Health. First, open the email on your phone. What you do next depends on if you have an Apple phone, or an Android (basically, any smartphone that isn't an iPhone). If you have an Android phone Check whether you have the Google Pay app. It comes pre-installed on many Android phones, but is sometimes just called "Pay". On some phones, you may have to install the app from the Google Play store first.

  • In the email, tap the button that says something like "G Pay Save to phone".

  • Tap "Open in Google Pay".
