The nurses that administer your vaccine, will record your data in the vaccination register operated by the Russian Ministry of Health. After that, the vaccination information will be available in your Gosuslugi account (if you have one). At the vaccination center, you can also ask for a printed COVID-19 vaccination certificate, for a digital copy of the certificate to be sent to your email, and for your vaccine information to be put into your vaccination certificate.Where do I find the certificate on Gosuslugi?
You can access it on the page Vaccination against COVID-19. What do I have to do to get my digital certificate on Gosuslugi?
I didn’t get my digital certificate. What should I do?
- Sign up for Gosuslugi and verify your personal info. You can read more about the process here (in Russian).

- Get vaccinated – you can sign up online. Make sure you fill in your ID/passport details and personal insurance policy number (SNILS) correctly at the vaccination center.
You can file a complaint on Gosuslugi. To this complaint, you can also attach a photo of the printed certificate that you received after your vaccination. Is there any other way to get a digital certificate?
No, that’s the only way. If someone offers you to pay money for a certificate and then upload it to Gosuslugi, then it’s a fake.
It is a criminal penalty to purchase, store, or transport a knowingly fake certificate as a document that can grant you rights or liberate you from responsibilities. Lawbreakers are charged regardless of whether or not they’d used the document and can be sentenced to up to one year of imprisonment.
If you learn that medical facilities offer to purchase fake vaccination certificates, you can leave an application at the official website
of the Russian Federal Service for Surveillance in Healthcare.
Moreover, it’s important to understand that if you don’t have your vaccination-induced immunity against COVID-19, it can lead to a severe case of the disease if you get infected.
You can get the authentic certificate on your personal page on Gosuslugi.
