As of 28 December, the National Certificate (Covid passport) and its alternative documents will no longer be valid for those residents who were vaccinated under the full vaccination schedule more than 7 months ago. In view of the planned changes, it is recommended that those who have reached the time for a booster dose against COVID-19, book a vaccination appointment, and get vaccinated.

The National Certificate or its alternative documents will apply for those from 16 years and older:

for the vaccinated:

• for a limited period - in the case of vaccination with one of the following COVID-19 vaccines:

- from one week to 210 days after the administration of the second dose of Comirnaty or Spikevax vaccine under the vaccination schedule;

- from 2 weeks to 210 days after the administration of the dose of COVID-19 Vaccine Janssen;

- from 4 weeks to 13 weeks after the administration of the first dose of Vaxzevria. After the administration of the second dose of Vaxzevria under the vaccination schedule - up to 210 days.

- from 2 weeks to 210 days after the administration of one dose of Comirnaty, Spikevax, or Vaxzevria vaccine to those who have recovered from the COVID-19 disease (coronavirus infection) confirmed by a positive SARS-CoV-2 PCR test result;

- from one week to 210 days after the administration of the second dose of Comirnaty or Vaxzevria vaccine, where the first dose was Vaxzevria vaccine and the second dose was Comirnaty vaccine, or vice versa.

•    for an unlimited period:

- after a booster dose of Comirnaty, Spikevax, or COVID-19 Vaccine Janssen (it comes into effect on the day the booster dose is administered). Children under 18 years of age are not vaccinated with a booster dose;

- those vaccinated under the full schedule, if they are 16 to 18 years of age (including those recovered from the disease confirmed by a PCR test and vaccinated under an incomplete schedule).

- those recovered from COVID-19 (confirmed by a positive SARS-CoV-2 PCR test result) and vaccinated under the full schedule.

For the recovered ones:

•   in the case of recovery from COVID-19 infection confirmed by a positive result of a PCR test an antigen test and maximum 210 days have passed of the positive testing (but not before the completion of the mandatory self-isolation period).

For the tested ones:

•  in the case of a positive result of a quantitative or semi-quantitative serological immunological test (covering anti-S, anti-S1 or anti-RBD IgG antibodies against SARS-CoV-2) received within less than the last 60 days. Please note that rapid serological tests taken at mobile points will not count for the purpose of the National Certificate. Residents of the country may take quantitative and semi-quantitative serological tests both after illness and after a full vaccination schedule;

• in the case of a negative paid PCR test taken within 72 hours (from the moment of sample collection).

As of 28 December, a National Certificate or its alternative documents will also be a requirement for children from 12 years and 2 months to 16 years of age. A National Certificate or its alternative documents will be issued to vaccinated, recovered, or tested children:

•  who, within the last seven days (from the time of sample collection), have gone through PCR testing or a rolling nasal swab specimen testing based on the PCR method at school with a negative test result thereof;

•  for an unlimited period after vaccination under the full vaccination schedule or after the past infection (confirmed by a positive result of a PCR test) and vaccination with at least one dose of the vaccine. Currently, children are not subject to booster vaccination;

•   in the case of recovery with diagnosis confirmed by a positive result of a PCR test or an antigen test, and maximum 210 days have passed of the positive testing (but not before the completion of the mandatory self-isolation period);

•  in the case of a positive result of a quantitative or semi-quantitative serological immunological test (covering anti-S, anti-S1 or anti-RBD IgG antibodies against SARS-CoV-2) received within less than the last 60 days;

Please note that the first or a booster dose of a COVID-19 vaccine can be booked online at Koronastop.lt or by dialling #1808. Vaccines may also be available from your GP. You have to contact your health provider’s reception desk to find out if they carry out vaccinations against COVID-19.
