QR code after vaccination in 2022

Restric­tions relat­ed to Covid-19 con­tin­ue, and more and more peo­ple are required to show a QR code in pub­lic places. The edi­tors fig­ured out why it is need­ed, where it is impos­si­ble to get with­out it and how to get it.

On Novem­ber 12, 2021, the gov­ern­ment of the Russ­ian Fed­er­a­tion sub­mit­ted to the State Duma a bill on the manda­to­ry pre­sen­ta­tion of QR codes in pub­lic places. Pub­lic places are under­stood as long-dis­tance and inter­na­tion­al trans­port, shop­ping cen­ters, pub­lic cater­ing. Gro­cery stores and phar­ma­cies will not be affect­ed by the ban. It is assumed that this mea­sure will be valid from Feb­ru­ary 1 to June 1, 2022 for cit­i­zens over 18 years old, but in some regions the require­ment to present QR codes has already been can­celed.

The exact list of objects and events with a QR code vis­it will be deter­mined at the local gov­ern­ment lev­el. Now restric­tions relat­ed to COVID-19 are in effect in almost all regions of the Russ­ian Fed­er­a­tion. Deci­sions on the intro­duc­tion of restric­tions or their can­cel­la­tion are made by local author­i­ties, depend­ing on the epi­demi­o­log­i­cal sit­u­a­tion.

A vac­ci­na­tion QR code is a spe­cial bar­code with encrypt­ed infor­ma­tion. Only those who have com­plet­ed the full coro­n­avirus vac­ci­na­tion process receive it. When scan­ning this code, you can get infor­ma­tion about the valid­i­ty of the vac­ci­na­tion cer­tifi­cate and a link to ver­i­fy its authen­tic­i­ty.

What is the vaccination QR code for?

If there is a vac­ci­na­tion QR code, a per­son has the right to vis­it restau­rants, cafes and oth­er pub­lic cater­ing orga­ni­za­tions, as well as mass events dur­ing the peri­od of restric­tions caused by COVID-19. In addi­tion, the code gives the right to set­tle with­out restric­tions in the recre­ation areas of the Krasnodar Ter­ri­to­ry, as well as trav­el abroad to those coun­tries that allow for­eign­ers vac­ci­nat­ed with Russ­ian vac­cines into their ter­ri­to­ry. Among them are Greece, Turkey, Cyprus and oth­ers.

Moscow was the first to use QR codes. From July 1 to July 19, 2021, it was pos­si­ble to vis­it mass events, the­aters, cin­e­mas and cater­ing places only with such a code. It was also assumed that QR codes would be manda­to­ry for trav­el in pub­lic trans­port.

What drugs are avail­able and what are the restric­tions?

Chil­dren under 18 do not need to issue a QR code. Also, the code will not be required when vis­it­ing phar­ma­cies and shops. More­over, if a per­son has a QR code, but he falls ill with covid, the code is sus­pend­ed. In addi­tion, some cat­e­gories of cit­i­zens will still be able to vis­it a restau­rant with­out a QR code: for­eign­ers with a neg­a­tive PCR test and those who have a med­ical exemp­tion for the vac­cine, but have a valid neg­a­tive PCR test.

In which regions of Russia does it operate

The QR code received after vac­ci­na­tion will be valid in any orga­ni­za­tion on the ter­ri­to­ry of the Russ­ian Fed­er­a­tion. In the sum­mer of 2021, it was required only in Moscow, the Moscow Region, Yaku­tia, as well as when check­ing into hotels, sana­to­ri­ums and oth­er health facil­i­ties in Rus­sia. Since autumn, the sit­u­a­tion has changed, and in almost all regions of the Russ­ian Fed­er­a­tion it is impos­si­ble to enter a cater­ing estab­lish­ment, a cin­e­ma, and even some shops with­out a code.

How to get a vaccination QR code

A vac­ci­na­tion QR code can be obtained after com­plet­ing the full vac­ci­na­tion cycle. That is, either after the sec­ond injec­tion of a two-com­po­nent vac­cine, or after the intro­duc­tion of a one-com­po­nent vac­cine.

    Sputnik is a two-component vaccine. It is placed with an interval of 3–4 weeks. There is a one-component (from the center of Gamaleya)one.
    EpiVacCorona is a two-component vaccine. It is placed with an interval of 2–3 weeks (from the center “Vector”)2.
    KoviVac is a two-component vaccine. It is placed with an interval of 2 weeks (from the Chumakov Center)3.

Some time after vac­ci­na­tion, the code will appear in your account on the State Ser­vices web­site. It will also be avail­able in the mobile appli­ca­tions “Gosus­lu­gi”, “Gosus­lu­gi Stop Coro­n­avirus” and “EMIAS.INFO”.

In paper form, the cer­tifi­cate of vac­ci­na­tion will be issued at the place where the last vac­ci­na­tion was admin­is­tered. After that, the infor­ma­tion will be trans­ferred to the Gosus­lug data­base, and it will appear in your per­son­al account in anoth­er 1–2 days.

If not the entire vac­ci­na­tion cycle has been com­plet­ed, and only the first of two vac­ci­na­tions has been admin­is­tered, only a cer­tifi­cate will appear in your per­son­al account. The QR code will appear only after the intro­duc­tion of the sec­ond vac­ci­na­tion.

Data on the vac­ci­na­tion cer­tifi­cate in the per­son­al account of “Gosus­lug” is dis­played in two lan­guages: Russ­ian and Eng­lish.

From Feb­ru­ary 21, 2022, a QR code can be obtained if you offi­cial­ly have been ill, get a pos­i­tive anti­body test or have a med­ical cer­tifi­cate, infor­ma­tion about which will also be avail­able on the State Ser­vices por­tal. Such a QR code is valid for six months and is issued only once. It is issued even to for­eign­ers.

Popular questions and answers

What is the validity period of the vaccination QR code?

The valid­i­ty peri­od of a QR code depends on what it con­firms.

- Vac­ci­na­tion — 1 year.
- Post­poned covid dis­ease — 6 months.
- PCR test results — with­in 72 hours.

How­ev­er, a pro­pos­al has already been sub­mit­ted to the Duma to reduce these terms. Accord­ing to a free­lance spe­cial­ist of the Min­istry of Health of Rus­sia for med­ical pre­ven­tion in the Urals Fed­er­al Dis­trict, Doc­tor of Med­ical Sci­ences Sergey Tokarev, the strain of the Delta virus is more aggres­sive and the per­son who has had it can­not be con­sid­ered inca­pable of infect­ing oth­ers, since anti­bod­ies have been present in the body for less than a year.5.

Is it possible for a foreign citizen to get a QR code?

For­eign cit­i­zens can receive a QR code if they have been vac­ci­nat­ed with a Russ­ian vac­cine. To receive the code, they need to con­tact the clin­ic where they were vac­ci­nat­ed. If these cit­i­zens were vac­ci­nat­ed in their own coun­try, infor­ma­tion about this is avail­able from the Russ­ian For­eign Min­istry. Cit­i­zens of oth­er states can­not yet receive a QR code on the Inter­net, but the gov­ern­ment plans to solve this prob­lem in the near future.

What is the responsibility for the production, sale and purchase of fake QR codes?

To date, there are sev­er­al arti­cles of the Crim­i­nal Code of the Russ­ian Fed­er­a­tion, on the basis of which both those who make fake QR codes and those who buy them can be held liable.

1. Art. 159 of the Crim­i­nal Code of the Russ­ian Fed­er­a­tion “Fraud”;
2. Art. 327 of the Crim­i­nal Code of the Russ­ian Fed­er­a­tion “Forgery, pro­duc­tion or cir­cu­la­tion of forged doc­u­ments”;
3. Art. 292 of the Crim­i­nal Code of the Russ­ian Fed­er­a­tion “Intro­duc­tion by an offi­cial into offi­cial doc­u­ments of know­ing­ly false infor­ma­tion for mer­ce­nary motives.”

The max­i­mum sanc­tion under each of these arti­cles is two years in prison.

How­ev­er, accord­ing to Anna Ore­shko­va6, a med­ical lawyer and a lawyer of the Soci­ety for the Pro­tec­tion of Patients’ Rights, the forgery of a QR code can­not be equat­ed with the forgery of doc­u­ments, the pun­ish­ment for which is pro­vid­ed for by the Crim­i­nal Code of the Russ­ian Fed­er­a­tion. Accord­ing to Ore­shko­va, the use of a fake code would be more like­ly a vio­la­tion of san­i­tary and tech­no­log­i­cal stan­dards, which does not pro­vide for crim­i­nal pros­e­cu­tion.

How­ev­er, it is bet­ter not to joke with the law. Despite the fact that vac­ci­na­tion is manda­to­ry for employ­ees of some sec­tors of the econ­o­my, today in the Russ­ian Fed­er­a­tion vol­un­tary vac­ci­na­tion, there­fore, a cit­i­zen can choose for him­self whether to vac­ci­nate him or not.

But accord­ing to the deci­sion of the chief state san­i­tary doc­tor for Moscow dat­ed June 15, 2021 No. 17, even for those indus­tries in which vac­ci­na­tion is manda­to­ry, 60% of employ­ees can be vac­ci­nat­ed. The remain­ing 40% include those who have been ill with covid, have a med­ical exemp­tion from vac­ci­na­tion, as well as those who have refused vac­ci­na­tion for oth­er rea­sons. And even in the event that a per­son decides not to be vac­ci­nat­ed, this is not pun­ish­able, in con­trast to a tar­get­ed vio­la­tion of the law.

To check the valid­i­ty of QR codes, a device based on arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence was recent­ly cre­at­ed. It also con­trols the pres­ence of the mask. The cre­ators guar­an­tee the secu­ri­ty of the data that will be received by the device. Whether it will be used is still unknown. To date, the only approved ver­i­fi­ca­tion mech­a­nism is the Stop­coro­n­avirus State Ser­vices appli­ca­tion.
