1753. To ask the Minister for Health if official names will be used on EU digital Covid certificates in order that they corroborate with the names of persons on passports or drivers licences to avoid any difficulties in cases in which a person needs to identify themselves as vaccinated if they travel abroad when they may habitually use another name such as in Irish.

The Digital COVID Certificate Regulation is intended to facilitate people’s fundamental right to move and reside freely and help to support the lifting of restrictions currently in place in a coordinated manner within the EU.

As the Minister for Health, I am supporting the work of my Department in collaborating with relevant Departments under the leadership of the Department of Taoiseach to assist in the on-going implementation of the EU Digital COVID Certificates.

Every effort has been made to ensure the data on EU Digital COVID Certificates is correct and complete. For citizens who have a concern about the detail on their Digital COVID Certificate, they can call the helpline on 1800 807 008 to have the details corrected.
