Vaccinated in Estonia

If you have been vaccinated in Estonia, you can go to the Patient Portal digilugu.ee to create a digital COVID certificate that meets the European Union standards and can be used both as a printout and in a smart device.

The course of vaccinations is considered completed and the certificate valid from the time of achieving maximum protection according to the instructions of the particular manufacturer:

  • for the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine Comirnaty, 7 calendar days from the second dose of the vaccine;
  • for the AstraZeneca vaccine Vaxzevria, 15 calendar days from the second dose of the vaccine;
  • for the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, 14 calendar days from the second dose of the vaccine;
  • for the Janssen COVID-19 vaccine, 14 calendar days after one dose of the vaccine.

People who have received a booster dose after completing the course, and no more than one year has passed since the additional dose, are equated to a vaccinated person.

Vaccinated in other countries

Estonia recognizes those vaccinations that are recognized by the country of origin (including also e.g. Sputnik V, Sputnik Lite, Sinovac, Sinopharm etc.). The course of vaccinations is considered completed and the certificate valid from the time of achieving maximum protection according to the instructions of the particular manufacturer (e.g. 21 days after the second dose of the vaccine for Sputnik V). People who have received an additional vaccine dose after completing the course, and no more than one year has passed since the additional dose, are equated to a vaccinated person.

Suitable for proving vaccination:

  • an immunisation passport, a copy of it or a relevant certificate (including a digital COVID-19 vaccination certificate that meets the EU requirements);
  • an officially certified printout from a database of another country;
  • a paper immunisation passport that a health care service provide can provide upon request;

The document proving vaccination in another country must be in Latin or Slavic alphabet, in Estonian, Russian or English and contain the following information:

  • the disease against which the immunisation was done;
  • the date of immunisation;
  • the vaccine medicinal product that was used;
  • how many doses have been administered to the person;
  • the data of the issuer of the certificate.
