An update following my call yesterday. Myself and my girlfriend both got our certs emailed to us today! So stick with the annoying jazz music and you will get sorted too
You'll notice this thread has drifted from the original topic. The original topic was nothing to do with Covid certs, and is about a scheme to introduce a standard vaccination schedule across the EU to facilitate proper disease control across the bloc. As part of this scheme, a standardised card will be produced (like your driver's licence) so that when someone relocates within the EU, they can show their vax card to their doctor and pick up where they left off.
It is still in the realm of conspiracy theory that such a card would be used on an ongoing basis to restrict movement. Even the covid cert won't remain in use beyond the pandemic.
Did the government make a boo boo issuing certs to early ?
Only got my J&J on Monday and received mine yesterday. With the vaccine taking 2 weeks to fully kick in I could still possibly be denied entry to a pub
would you stop, if you told me a year ago we'd be divided into the haves and have nots with and without a respective vacine cert/recovery proof in the last 6 months, or recent PCR test, id have laughed. we have slid onto a very slippery road and that's the point, YES we have drifted and drifted and drifted. will you admit this is lunacy when the extension of this system goes beyond October or when despite huge vaccine rates, they close the country down again?
This is not Polio or bloody Smallpox and the likes..this whole thing is being hijacked by radicals who have other agendas, selling products, ideas, lifestyles, working at home kits and suggestions for life in the new normal..or as I call it, ABnormal.
also you said and I quote
"No, this cannot be used to stop you moving within the EU"...well it can, or rather if you have no cert of vaccination proof which most are insisting on you're not welcome to travel in the common area.
No, this cannot be used to force anyone to get vaccinated
if you sign a confession against your wishes in police custody in order to get basics like water, food or even some sleep, it's coercion.
If you take a vaccine despite not wanting to, just to get access to travel, coffee shops and indoor dining, that too is coercion.
Id go along with it if it was smallpox as people compare the situation to but it isn't. It's a more contagious strain of the original one and less likely to make you ill. The deputy CMO described the symptoms of the delta strain as different..cough, sneezing, runny or stuff nose... every hayfever symptom checked. I assume like last years FLU, hayfever is now non existent then too? the only show every in town is Covid it seems.
Got mine yesterday in the mail. Was surprised to be honest considering what I read online about it being a disaster. I got my second dose on may 28th
Speak to your GP and present the documentation you have rom the US.
Certainly in the UK the GP can simply update your medical records and it works, but the UK has a functional database to track these things, we don't...
My pal spent over 4hrs on the phone Tuesday waiting for an answer and his cert dropped in his letterbox this morning so it seems the wait may be worth it. Farcical situation still.
Currently on hold with the annoying jazz music for 3hrs 15mins….
Myself and hubby had 2nd vaccine on 23rd April and 4th May with GP.
Ive invested this time, not giving up now .
Update - mammy got hers in the post but my GF is still waiting for hers.
guess what arrived in the post today, an A4 printed digital certificate. Thankfully I didn't have to endure the disaster of the digital certificate hotline.
I got my second dose on Tuesday and my cert arrived by email at 8:05 am this morning.
Anyone have any idea of wait times at the moment?
Probably in wrong place again!!!
Got my Cert but it only has my middle name on it. ( I am known by middle name) but my Passport has both first name and middle name. Can't get through to Helpline. Am I in trouble with this at Airports.
Only slight query. The issuing authority field is blank.
Shouldn't that be be the HSE or Department of Health?
When I scanned it into the HSE COVID app, it comes up correctly with the issuing authority being the Department of Health Ireland.
Well I'm currently waiting just over 4hrs 😬
They hung up on my pal this morning at exactly 3hrs!
By the sounds of it on here , it's worth sticking with it!
Oh I'd cry!! So frustrating.
Apologies if this has been asked and/or clarified previously in the thread, but I received my cert today and my first name (which is spelled with a fada) doesn't have one on the cert.
I'm not planning to travel in the immediate future, but does this impact its usefulness and do I need to get it altered/reissued? Thanks!
That's going to be a mess in France in August if you need to show your vaccinated to get access to the supermarkets.
Just got hung up on a second time at the two hour mark. Four hours spent so far today. Anyone getting through?
This has been rejected for supermarkets. It is not happening.
Your mobile operator is causing that, not the helpline. Eir/GoMo cut off at 2hrs.
Many phone networks are setup to do that, as a call going beyond 2 or 3 hours is considered a potential error or fault! So they reset the connection, and if someone's really there they can dial again.
Holding people for hours on a 1800 number will also cost the DoH a fortune as they're paying for your inbound call.
I have searched everywhere but can't find an awnser and a few of my friends are in the same position. Covid cert is in Maiden name but passport is in married name or vice versa.
If you contact the helpline will they reissue cert with correct surname or will carrying your marriage certificate suffice as proof?
I don't know the answer, but if your signature on your passport is the middle name that you use, that plus the fact that the date of birth on the passport and the certificate would match, should be a strong indicator that both are yours.
Eventually got through around the 5 hr mark. It was worth it my details were on the covax system but not on the hse system apparently. So all sorted now and certificate should issue in 5 working days.
To travel you do not need proof of vaccination, you can have a negative test or proof of recovery.
Some people can't get vaccines and it's only right that they can still travel.
Just to clear up, in Ireland you can get a coffee/food etc... you just can't eat/drink it indoors (on that premises). Nobody can for the time being.
Comparing not being allowed to consume your food/drink indoors to access to basic human needs (sleep, food, water etc...) is quite frankly absurd.
Anyone receive a digital cert yet after the 1 jab of the J&J from Boots or another pharmacy? Jab was got over 2 weeks ago. Boots said all info has been sent to HSE.
