How do I add my vaccination certificate to my wallet on my iPhone?

On Android phones, download the free app Greenpass. For iPhones, go to the free web app Covid19passbook.netlify.app on your phone’s Safari browser. This will do the same thing as the Greenpass app, with the added utility of letting you ‘import’ the QR code from a photo on the same phone (just screenshot the QR code from the email on your phone).
Why bother with another Android app when the HSE COVID-19 app works already?

And how does one know that the apps that you mention are trustworthy?

Anyway, Brendan asked specifically about importing the vaccination cert into his Apple iPhone Wallet and that is not possible unless/until the cert is wrapped into the required pkpass format. I've seen sites that claim to do this but have no idea if they are trustworthy.

He asked specifically about importing into iPhone wallet which is what it does, see articles in the independent and mirror on the topic(quick google will find them)
As always due diligence is required in terms of thrust worthiness of any app, the creators name is published as well as contributors and you can easily find the GitHub project if you want to investigate further.

Folks

This is not just another thread about vax certs or about people who haven't even been vaccinated!

It's very specific. Can I put it in my iPhone wallet?

If you have other questions, start new threads.

So it's not possible to add it to the wallet easily.

But the app is fine. It's on the front page of the app, so it's the same amount of clicks as if it were in the wallet.

I had deleted the App because the battery was running down very quickly on my iPhone.

I put it back up to keep a copy of the Vax Cert.

But now the battery is running down quickly again.

I presume I can't do anything about this except delete the app?

Brendan I'd suggest going into the settings on the app and turn everything you can off.. Notifications, data, background running etc and c if that helps with bat usage

Bit strange... They did have battery drain issues on Android back in August but fixed it pretty quickly.

The most likely battery drain is the Bluetooth usage. If you're not using Bluetooth for anything else you could try turning it off (which also turns off proximity tracking)

Or as suggested, turn off tracking functionality in the app (though I'm not sure if that will completely stop it checking Bluetooth... So turning off Bluetooth makes sure it's not draining battery)

Yes - I had the Android app battery drain problem but I thought that it was earlier (summer 2020?) and it was fixed quickly.
I had uninstalled the app but once they fixed the problem I reinstalled it and have had no problems since.
Don't know about any similar issues on iOS.

Brendan - are you sure that you're using the latest version?
I presume that you are if you just reinstalled it from the Apple App Store?

Edit: you are correct @EmmDee - August. My mistake! :)

I did get the German Covid App - it allows for multiple certificates to be added to it - handy when travelling as a family
