Transiting through Frankfurt Airport

We are traveling to Cairo with a stop over in Frankfurt. In addition to a pcr test, we will have our cdc vaccination card. Does the card need to have a QR code? Our cards do nit have a QR code.

It looks like if you are traveling from a country that's not a risk area and only transiting through (and fully vaxxed), you don't need to fill out the form?

Just wondering whether I need the form or a negative test. I'm fully vaccinated and will only be in the international connections part of airport.

Sorry to be a bother. I have double-/triple-checked and just a bit nervous because the transiting directions seem to mostly say "to another EU country" and not "to the UK"

We landed in Frankfurt on 9/18, with no connecting flight. We did not have to provide a negative test, only proof we were vaccinated. It does not look like this has changed since August 15th. Here is a helpful website https://www.germany.info/us-en/covid-19/2321562. We did have to complete the digital entry form for Germany, and while completing it I uploaded copy of my passport and proof of vaccination. This is the link to the form. https://www.einreiseanmeldung.de/#/. Sorry, I don't know if that's required for a connecting flight. But it was quite easy. At the airport in San Francisco, we showed our passports, vax cards, and proof that we had done the digital entry form. That was it. Since it was so easy to do, you might just want to cover your bases. When the digital entry form asks you for an address for the next 10 days, I just pulled up a local hotel address and put that in. It was never validated. I couldn't complete the form online without completing that info. We're all just navigating these forms as best we can! Hope that helps. In summary, no negative test required to enter Germany if you're vaccinated(I was also confused about this before we left).
