If like me you don’t need a personal digital certificate or god forbid a cl@ve which I have only read about but sound as though they present most people with problems you can still access miHistoria either on your laptop or via the app without either of the above in order to get your EU Covid Certificate.
The following is a step by step walkthrough for those of us who are often technically challenged so that you end up with your QR Code should you need it.
Yesterday I went to my GP in Arona and the lovely man at reception (he has helped me before so I knew he would be good) showed me exactly what I needed to do.
- You give him your phone number and he messages you a numeric code so he can check you are who you say you are. He then sends you a personal password to allow you to access your information.
- You then need to download the app to your phone which looks like this
- or access it via your laptop from HERE and you see this
- Open either the app or on your laptop the box that says SCS Digital Identity Access.
- Once open type in your NIE and the password that you have now received from your health centre.
- Press accept and then you have to change the original password to something of your own choice and that you can remember. (As with normal passwords you need to add the new one twice to make sure it is correct). Mine is made up of capital letters, lower case letters and numbers but whatever you choose it cannot be your email, your NIE, your name or less than 6 digits.
- Once you have done this and pressed accept you are taken to a new screen
- From there (more security measures) you need to add 3 digits from the 6 that are listed as CVV on the back of your medical card.
- You then have access to all your medical history through various areas, including the new Covid Vaccine and you can either open the QR code directly or download it as a Pdf file if you are happier keeping a printed copy.
- If you choose the file it is in Spanish and English and gives details of when you had the vaccine, what you had, information about you, i.e. name, date of birth and in the top corner the QR code.
- If you choose just the QR code it will look like this
The above may sound complicated but if I can do it and particularly if my OH can do it (anyone who knows him knows just what a technophobe he is) it is straightforward just follow the steps above. I spent a couple of hours yesterday afternoon looking in each section finding out what I had told the medics in the past, what and when I had my last prescription, what other vaccines I had received like flu jab etc. allergies and even the date I last saw my GP to renew a prescription…. All interesting stuff.
