The CDC has announced a paper Vaccine Card will be issued to every American who takes the COVID-19 vaccine. How will we store it or keep it safe? Putting the card in your wallet is not a sustainable solution. A Seattle startup Vaccertify has created a way to store your Vaccine card digitally so it is easily accessible at all times. The scannable QR makes it easy to pull up and verify and it can be texted or emailed to maintain social distancing.
The virus has entangled the whole world and the challenges associated with the vaccine is growing more and more. At the early stage of this pandemic, developing the vaccine was the only thing that we had on our minds. But over the months, we slowly realize that there are many other challenges we have to tackle even after the invention of the vaccine.
From availability to public trust, storage, and the dosage, many variables are even more important than the vaccine itself. And what about social trust?
Just like we are required to wear masks before we enter the mall, we will need a certification soon to ensure people around us that we have taken the Covid-19 vaccine. And this exactly where Vaccertify Comes into play.
We are at the final stages of the testing and development to ensure the creation of a fully effective Covid-19 vaccine. But due to the nature of the virus, we will need a mechanism to recognize people who have taken the vaccine and those who still have not been vaccinated. Keeping that in mind, Vaccertify has launched its prototype of a digital covid-19 vaccine certificate.
In this era of technology, traveling everywhere with your medical certificates is not only feasible but also comes in the way of keeping your privacy protected. With this digital covid-19 vaccine certificate from Vaccertify, you gain the ability to keep your certificate inside your smartphone.
The prototype displays the following information,
- User name
- Profile photo
- Type of Covid-19 vaccine taken
- The date of the competition of the final shot
- A scannable QR code
Vaccertify pays attention to the smallest details when it comes to the user’s privacy. Whenever the inquirer scans the QR code, the information will only be shown after a private pin is entered. This allows two layers of protection for the users’ privacy.
In today’s world, the COVID-19 vaccine certificate holds great power when it comes to the freedom of any individual. Without a COVID-19 vaccine certificate, individuals are restricted from participating in various social gatherings, parties, weddings, even airports, and other economic activities. The word of mouth is not enough when the lives of people are on the line.
Over the next few months, many households might want visitors to provide proof of immunity as a condition of access inside their home. And the Vaccertify Prototype made this way too easy.
The place where the Vaccertify Prototype shines the most in social situations. It offers us a chance to know whether the friends, electrician, or the baby sitter who is entering our house is vaccinated or not. You can easily check the vaccination status of anyone. And they will have a hassle-free private way to show their vaccination status without having to display their medical records.
At the end of the day being able to pull out your digitally stored vaccination ID just makes sense and Vaccertify has established itself as the place to go for this situation. Hopefully, in the future, this is no longer needed but in the short term, it is the reality we live in.
