Health pass and vaccination in Scotland

From 9 August (30 September for young people aged between 12 and 17 years), you must present a “passe sanitaire” (“health pass”) to access a number of public places or activities in France.

Three types of proof are accepted:
- proof of full vaccination,
- proof of a test less than 72 hours old or
- proof of recovery from COVID-19 more than 11 days ago and less than 180 days ago.

Verification is carried out by QR code, which may be presented in digital or paper format.

From Friday 3 September, people vaccinated in Scotland will be able to download a PDF copy of their vaccination certificate, with a personalised QR code, to print off instantly or store on their mobile phone for use domestically or internationally. This QR code is recognized by the TousAntiCovid app (https://www.gouvernement.fr/info-coronavirus/tousanticovid).

For information, the “health pass” consists of the presentation of one of the following three forms of medical proof in digital (via the TousAntiCovid app) or paper format:

1. Vaccination, on condition that people have completed a full course of vaccination and left the necessary period of time after the final injection, i.e.:

  • 7 days after the second injection for double-dose vaccines (Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca).
  • 28 days after the injection for single-dose vaccines (Johnson & Johnson)
  • 7 days after the injection for vaccines for people who have previously had COVID-19 (only one dose).

2. Certificate showing a negative test taken less than 72 hours ago

3. A positive RT-PCR or antigen test result showing recovery from COVID-19, dated at least 11 days old and less than six months old.
Positive RT-PCR or antigen tests more than 11 days old and less than 6 months old (taken to date) indicate a limited risk of re-infection with COVID-19.
