Hello. This is Yoji.
Do you need to get a COVID vaccination certificate? In Japan, there is a dedicated app prepared by the Japanese government to prove vaccination. With the app, you can prove that you have been vaccinated anytime, anywhere. You can also check the date of inoculation and the type of vaccine inoculated in the app. It’s very easy to register the app, but the app is only available in Japanese. So, in this article, I will explain how to register the app using English. If you find this article useful, please share it with your friends.

The description of the app is written on each screen, but it is not so important, so you can skip it.
After reading the card information, My Number information will be displayed on the smartphone screen.
There are two things you need to get a vaccination certificate using the methods in this article. The first is my number card, and the second is a smartphone that can read my number card. If you do not have an Individual Number Card(My number card), please see the article on how to obtain one from the following topics.
My Number Card reads and writes data using an IC chip or an NFC-B compatible reader / writer. Taking advantage of its features, this app uses My Number Card to verify your identity.
Compatible models with reading function are iPhone 7 or later with iOS 13.7 or later and NFC-compatible Android smartphone with Android 8.0 or later. If you are using an older smartphone, go to the local government office and get a paper vaccination certificate.
