You can document your vaccination status with a corona passport through the phone app, the pieces of paper handed out to you during your vaccination or a vaccination certificate from the health department.

If you have previously been infected with COVID-19, you can use a positive result from a PCR-test that is between 14 days and 12 weeks old as documentation.
