MANILA, Philippines — The “soft launch” of the VaxCertPH portal for the issuance of digital COVID-19 vaccination certificates in the country will start on September 6, following the approval of the Interagency Taskforce on Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF).

“The IATF likewise approved the September 6, 2021, soft launch of the VaxCertPH,” presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said in a statement.
