The Buenos Aires Government reported this Friday that the option is already enabled “Gender Identity Law. Modify my data”so that people who changed their gender identity on their DNI can access the vaccination certificate and specify the change there as well.
According to the Buenos Aires Ministry of Health, the implementation aims to respond to the specific problem encountered by people who changed their gender identity, given that despite having the complete scheme, those who did the civil procedure between the first and second inoculation , they could not access their vaccination certificate.
The coordinator of Provincial Program for the Implementation of Policies on Gender and Sexual Diversity in Health, Carla Giulianoexplained that the initiative arose in response to a large group of people who reported that they had no way of accessing the vaccination certificate with their identity.
“This is part of a line of work that we have been maintaining, which is to start producing health information that takes into account the gender identity perspective in the records,” Giuliano stressed.
? We incorporate a new button on the page of #VacunatePBA so that the modification of your personal data is more accessible if you made the change of DNI under the Gender Identity Law.
