--- Quote ---Phone App With COVID-19  Vaccine Certificate Opens in Greece

The vaccinated in Greece now have the option of showing a certificate with other key data on their cell phones instead of pulling out papers to enter stores and other places, thanks to a new phone app.

The Digital Governance Ministry has activated the Covid Free Wallet to make it easier to present vaccination proof, or certificates of recovery, to get into retail businesses, restaurants, cafes, gyms and other leisure or entertainment venues.

The free app is available for download on smartphones and tablets at the website, as well as through the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store too.

Users can store the document onto their device by scanning their certificate’s QR code or by downloading it as a PDF and clicking “Save to wallet.” Multiple certificates can be downloaded onto one device to make it easier for families.
