Vaccination and recovery cannot be combined on one certificate as they are documented separately. When someone has received two doses of vaccine, the certificate says 2/2. If they then received a third dose, it says 3/3. Recovery cannot be counted as an additional vaccine dose. However, a separate certificate can be issued to prove recovery. You can find out how to apply for a certificate of recovery on the page Where and how to get a COVID certificate.
Are you planning a trip to another country where a booster is required for entry? If so, don’t forget to take the following with you:
- Your COVID certificate of vaccination
- Your ID card or passport
- A certificate of recovery to prove that you have had and recovered from coronavirus (if applicable).
