Which student union events will require vaccine certificate?
All indoor, public events with over 100 participants, i.e. FestU parties, PU-bio. Each event will aim to clearly state if vaccine certificates are required, but it is your own responsibility to find the correct information prior to event.

What counts as a valid VC?
Paper or digital certificate with scannable QR-code. If the scanner declines the pass, the pass is not scannable or other data is illegible, you may be denied entry. It is the scanner/reader that validates the pass, not the staff at the event. Approved scanning is matched to your photo ID.

Which VC's are valid?
Swedish and EU-issued passes. For other countries, it is your own responsibility to check if your VC is valid for events entry in Sweden.

If I cannot get vaccinated due to medical reasons?
Then you can bring a valid medical certificate stating this clearly. Certificate must be matchable with your ID. If staff at entry can not clearly determine the certificate, you may be denied entry.

No other certificate is accepted (such as negative test results, recovery certificate etc.).
