THE Ministry of Health wishes to inform members of the public that it has introduced a self-service electronic platform, in partnership with FNB Botswana. 

The system is such that all people vaccinated in Botswana can download COVID-19 electronic vaccination certificates at the comfort of their homes, offices or other personal spaces.
For one to generate their electronic vaccination certificate, they use the following URL:

The system would require one to enter their identity number (Omang for citizens or passport number for non-citizens). They will also be required to enter their Botswana registered cellphone number, prefixed with 267.

After entering this information, a one-time password also known as OTP, will be sent to their cellphone, which they will use to download the vaccination certificate.

Please note that the certificate downloaded has a quick response code, commonly known as QR code, which is the most important aspect of the certificate. It is the QR code which when scanned will show all information about the holder, being their names, vaccines used and when the vaccines were taken. 

Therefore, the certificate needs not be stamped because it has a QR code which when scanned, will show the vaccination data about the holder. The certificate QR code can be scanned from any form, be it in paper or in soft copy format stored in the phone or laptop.
The ministry therefore, hopes that this initiative will help bring convenience to many people who no longer have to queue at ministry facilities for electronic vaccination certificates. Any further enquiries can be made at the nearest health facility.

Thank you.
Yours faithfully

Dr Christopher Nyanga
