The Corona Passport - Relaxed Rules
As of 21 May the rules for valid documentation are relaxed, so that as a starting point 14 days after the first vaccination you can use documentation for this as your corona pass. The health authorities will determine the specific time.
The control of the corona pass is relaxed, so it is possible for voluntary associations and libraries to carry out one daily random check of all persons present. This does not mean that you won’t be needing the corona pass anymore though, only that the control of it will be relaxed!
The app minsundhed will be your Corona passport, showing whether you have been vaccinated, infected before
or tested negative within the past 72 hours. You can download minsundhed where you usually download your apps.

Vaccination – Official Scheme
All citizens residing legally in Denmark are entitled to the COVID-19 vaccination.

Being a healthy person under 50 you can expect to be notified in May or June. Please, do not contact your GP, as he/she is not responsible for the vaccination program.
