U.S. Embassy, Ljubljana: Health Alert (September 10, 2021)
September 10, 2021

Dear American Citizen in Slovenia:

QR code for those vaccinated in the United States:  If you received your vaccination in the United States and used CDC’s VAMS portal, you can now log in to your VAMS account to get a printable QR code.  Currently if someone scans the QR code, the linked website only opens if the person scanning uses a U.S. IP address, so likely not viewable in Slovenia.  We have alerted the CDC to this issue.

Slovenia COVID-19 Statistics (as of 10 September 2021):

  • The Slovenian government has stated that anyone who is not vaccinated should expect they will contract COVID-19 before spring.
