Why doesn't my vaccination certificate come out if I already have the second dose?

Since last week, several users on social networks have reported problems obtaining and downloading their vaccination certificate. Apparently, this was due to a saturation on the page due to the announcement of the reopening of the border with the United States , since many Mexicans need the document to travel.

However, the website of the federal Ministry of Health cannot process requests at that rate. It must be taken into account that there are millions of records that have to be updated and some may take longer than others. While some people may download it within hours after receiving their second dose, others have been told that it may take 1 to 2 to get their updated certificate.

If you were unsuccessful when trying to get your receipt online , a message appears that says:

Please wait a few minutes and try again. You can also request the certificate from the mobile phone registered in mivacuna through the following link: .

When you enter the link from your cell phone, it will send you to the WhatsApp download chatbot, where you will have to follow the steps described above.

Several users say that this has worked for them, but it implies taking a longer path that you can save by requesting the document directly through WhatsApp .

What if my information is wrong on the vaccination certificate?

If when obtaining your Covid-19 vaccination certificate you notice that any of your data is wrong or the second dose has not yet been registered, you can request a data correction on the page: .html

There you will have to enter:

  • Your CURP
  • The email you registered
  • Your mobile phone number

They also ask you to attach a copy of your vaccination certificate and check the box corresponding to the data you want to correct.
