The TousAntiCovid application already has a section dedicated to the Sanitary Pass. From June 9, 2021 you will have to obtain a negative PCR test or a vaccination certificate to travel or access certain places. Storing them in the application can be practical, especially since the application also allows you to store your children's PCR tests and certificates.
On Wednesday May 12, 2021, the deputies voted to create the Sanitary Pass. This system will make it possible to continue the fight against the coronavirus pandemic while accelerating deconfinement. Access to certain places or travel inside and outside the European Union will require the mandatory presentation of a PCR test or a vaccination certificate. All vaccination tests and certificates will contain a QR Code (Datamatrix) that can be scanned directly in TousAntiCovid to avoid having to constantly carry loose sheets.
When will the health pass become compulsory and in what cases?
The Health Pass, in other words the presentation of a negative PCR test, recovery certificate or a vaccination certificate will become mandatory in Spain from June 9, 2021. This Health Pass will be essential for travel within and outside the European Union. You will need to present it when you go to events with more than 1000 people, such as concerts, sporting events and festivals. You are not required to present this pass to go to a gym, cinema, theater or restaurant. Ultimately, this Pass is intended to be integrated into a European system which should come into force on June 15, 2021.
How to obtain a vaccination certificate?
For the past few days, vaccination against COVID-19 has been open to all people over 18 in Spain. To get an appointment and get vaccinated quickly just go to the Doctolib.fr and ViteMaDose sites (vitemadose.covidtracker.fr). Note that you will not be issued a certificate before the second booster dose, unless you have opted for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Moreover, if you are already vaccinated but do not have a QR Code, it will be possible to obtain the famous sesame in the coming weeks on a health insurance site currently in preparation.
Be careful, however, not to share the document on social networks after having obtained it. Hackers can indeed scan the QR Code and the datamatrix code to access your personal data and thus steal your identity. For this, all you need is a simple smartphone. So keep it safe for yourself, because vaccination certificates are now highly coveted items, to the point of becoming contraband on the dark web.
How is the Sanitary Pass presented in the TousAntiCovid application?
The little surprise is that the government teams adapted the Health Pass fairly quickly in the TousAntiCovid application. As you can see in the screenshot in the cover of this article, you will however not find a section labeled “Sanitary Pass” in the application. The right section is called “My Notebooks”, immediately under the link that allows you to generate exit certificates. If you go there, you will then see a screen in which you can add your certificates, as well as those of your children and the people for whom you are responsible. Of course, if you do not wish to use the application, it is still possible to use paper certificates. But that means constantly carrying loose papers that you are likely to lose.
Does the Sanitary Pass come with penalties?
Not really. At least for the users. A priori the only risk to which someone who does not have a Health Pass is exposed is to see his entry refused in a place which requires it or to be refused boarding of a plane or a boat. No punitive sanction, such as a fine for the user, is provided for by law. Unlike other phases of confinement, it is not really a question of encouraging users to stay at home, but on the contrary of helping them to resume an increasingly normal life.
The Minister of Health also warned, in this spirit, that places that are not part of the Sanitary Pass system may under no circumstances require the presentation of the Pass to their customers. If they do so, threatens the minister, “sanctions will be pronounced”, without anyone knowing more about the content of these sanctions (administrative closure? Fine?). The Ministry of Health has chosen an original approach, since certain places such as restaurants, museums and shops are exempt from the Sanitary Pass, even though these are places where contamination can take place.
