The vaccination certificate is a yellow paper with the following kinds of information: first and last names, birth date, passport information, the data about the medical establishment that issued the certificate, and the data about all types of vaccines that were injected. 

Meanwhile, more than a million EU residents have already received certificates of vaccination from coronavirus. Didieu Reynders, the European Commissioner for legal issues said so as cited by Agerpres
