Vaccination passport introduced in Sweden – here's how it works
The e- health authority is responsible for issuing vaccination passports.
– It applies to public events and general indoor gatherings of more than 100 persons. It applies to persons of 18 and over. It applies to sports and cultural events , writes Jan Pettersson, from the e-health authority, in an email to Kristianstadsbladet.
”The arranger has a responsibility. According to Folkhälsomyndigheten there must be a routine in place for controlling the certificates”
Who can ask to see a vaccination passport?
The arranger has a responsibility. According to Folkhälsomyndigheten there must be a routine in place for controlling the certificates.
Who is responsible for seeing to it that arrangers follow the new rules?
Länstyrelsen (the county administrative board )is the supervising authority.
– Monitoring will be the same as before. We will be out a lot to inform, advise and supervise, says Paula Hultggren, co-ordinator at the pandemic supervision unit at the county administrative board in Skåne.
What if an arranger contravenes the rules?
– We'll get in touch with them. They can be told to make changes or upgrade to comply with the rules. They will get a list of things that must be attended to, and time to carry out the changes, says Paula Hultgren.
Arrangers who do not make improvements will be given an injunction, a mandatory decision, or risk a fine.
Private arrangers can demand a vaccination passport. In Hässleholm municipality a vaccination passport will be obligatory at all cultural and leisure events, regardless of how many take part.
This is what applies as from 1st December
A vaccination passport must be shown at general gatherings and public events indoors with more than 100 participants.

If you have not been vaccinated because of a medical condition? Then you must be able to show a doctor's certificate.
