Registering Covid Vaccine at myvaccines

Has anyone who has been vaccinated against COVID managed to have their 'record' updated at www.myvaccines.ch ?

If I understand correctly, the record of the vaccination has to be done by a 'professional'. But it's not clear what that means.

Or is it done at the vaccination centre (on the second shot ?)

With a possible 'vaccine passport' for the EU and CH being discussed, I'm trying to make sure I'm 'in the cue' (will have my second shot in a week)

Re: Registering Covid Vaccine at myvaccines

I registered after I had my second jab. It was complicated and cost my 10f to do it afterwards. Took a few weeks as well, but they accepted the certificate.

If you’ve got 5 minutes to spare have the injection clinic do it for you.

Re: Registering Covid Vaccine at myvaccines

I haven’t managed to get mine entered yet.

The vaccine centre said they couldn’t do it when I had mine but I was one of the first to get vaccinated in the canton, they might have got better at it now.

In recent weeks, the foundation myvaccines has made enormous efforts to remedy the previously identified critical vulnerabilities. A second overall assessment has shown that operational safety and security for the platform and its processes cannot be provided at an acceptable level. The foundation is working on a solution to make vaccination data available to users again and kindly asks for your patience.

An external review has shown that the previous platform is insufficiently protected against current security threats. The foundation board therefore has decided not to relaunch the website myvaccines.ch in its known form and functionalities. Previous estimates that operations could be resumed in May are unfortunately not feasible anymore.

The data has been isolated and secured. The foundation board is making every effort to provide a new, secure web application for accessing the vaccination data. This will allow users to securely download their data and/or initiate deletion requests. The Foundation Board is currently seeking funding and additional partners to implement this solution.

The foundation board takes full responsibility for this difficult decision, which was taken after thorough examination in the interest of data security. The board is aware of the consequences that the lack of data access has for users and sincerely regrets this. The Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) and the Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) have been informed.

At the present time it is not possible to say when the data will be available again. The Foundation Board communicates the current status weekly on meineimpfungen.ch. The next update will be published on Thursday, 20 May 2021 at 15:00.
You might expect any data you put into this platform is now duplicated elsewhere. They really have goofed on their web application security, it seems.....

I received my second vaccination at my Doctors this week and she did it for me. I just had to show my code. She was all geared up to do it and I would imagine it would be the same in a vaccination centre. When I login now, my record states "You have been vaccinated successfully ".

I misunderstood and was referring to the vacme portal.

Myvaccines has basically been shut down and is highly unlikely to be reactivated. The security screw up was so bad it cannot be rescued.

There will (should?) be a new platform for Covid certification in a few weeks.

Re: Registering Covid Vaccine at myvaccines

The way IT projects, across the world, have failed throughout the pandemic is atrocious.

The technology and the technical skills are all there. But, just like life in the big corporates, I imagine, it shows again and again that 'strategists' and 'visionaries' are duping the 'money men' with unrealistic slide decks that look fantastic and have no connection with the people who actually have to deliver.

(not that I'm in anyway implying anything personal )

Re: Registering Covid Vaccine at myvaccines

I am sure the webdevs who designed it though, "oh, it's just a micky mouse platform for storing vaccine information, let's do the quick & dirty solution"

what could possibly go wrong?

Information update 20.05.2021

We understand the uncertainty and the unanswered questions of the users and will provide you with information as transparently as possible. This also includes the fact that not all questions have been clarified yet.

Requests for information and deletion

As the platform was taken offline and isolated for security reasons on 22 March 2021, our support staff have been unable to access it in recent weeks. The processing of the requests for information and deletion will therefore still take some time. We have informed the affected users that it will take longer than 30 days to process their requests.

Until now, we have required a certified copy of an identity document to process requests for information and deletion. We are currently investigating the financial, legal and organisational feasibility of covering the costs for the certification or an alternative procedure. However, we are in a financially tight situation. The Foundation myvaccines is a non-profit organisation. We have offered our services free of charge or at cost price.

Accessibility of the data

We receive numerous requests by e-mail in which users ask us to send them the vaccination record in PDF format. We will soon provide a form on our website for this purpose, in which all the necessary information can be entered so that we can answer such requests.

Request for refund

The Foundation myvaccines did not charge a user fee for the electronic vaccination record. Since the electronic vaccination record was only recognised as equivalent to the paper vaccination record if the vaccination data had been checked by a health professional, we offered a service to register and/or check the vaccinations. We charged CHF 10.00 for this service, which paid the health professional who did the work. Those people who have already paid for such a service will be reimbursed if the transfer/validation of vaccinations has not yet taken place. Currently we are establishing the process for reimbursement. We will inform about this on our homepage. If the staff have already transferred/checked the vaccinations, i.e. the paid service has been provided, the users will receive an official vaccination record in PDF format or on paper.

COVID certificates

COVID-19 vaccinations can no longer be entered into the electronic vaccination record. The COVID-19 vaccination record from myvaccines.ch is not a COVID certificate. The FOPH is responsible for questions regarding the COVID certificate.

The next information will be posted on our homepage on Thursday, 27 May 2021 at 15:00.
The requests for information and deletion are worrying. It's going to be either already encrypted or stolen or possibly both.

Ouch. Though if it's ransomware, who would care to pay?

Re: Registering Covid Vaccine at myvaccines

I'm actually surprised that information is not simply stored on my health insurance card's chip. What is it for then?

Re: Registering Covid Vaccine at myvaccines

the chip is to make your health experience smoother in Switzerland.

On the topic of ransomware I would say the entity cannot pay although they are not on a ransomware list of 2203 companies that I have access to.

Maybe in simple terms it was so crap it broke so badly. Like they say in their releases, they are no for profit and therefore might have gone cheap.

Purely speculation of course.

Mmm interesting case. A pandemic was not in the swiss public IT plans I guess. But even so, this emergency has hit very differently the different health systems across countries, also on IT. My friends in France commented some days ago that there have been very successful private initiatives to crawl the different vaccination centers systems to relocate unused appointments, the vaccination register in several spanish communities I hear is being treated as any other vaccine and entered in the long time existing IT systems without additional fuss, same stories about IT positive examples during the pandemics I hear from Greek friends and Bulgarian....I am starting to think that the countries with good IT specialists, where expensive labor costs countries offshore their projects, became at the end the ones best prepared to handle the IT struggle of the pandemic. I have not enough data to be conclusive about this, though.
