From the pandemic outbreak to now, threats of Covid-19 is ongoing all over the world. The most wanted thing right now is undoubtedly the vaccination against Covid-19. Most healthcare companies, research institutes are in the challenge to launch the vaccination as early as possible.
Vaccertify- a Seattle, US-based company, has been added to this Coronavirus movement. They are not in vaccination research, rather than a promise to develop a digital prototype of the Covid-19 vaccine certificate. You can also say this a ‘Social Pass’ that will feel you how badly you need it in this ongoing-pandemic era.
How Badly We Need This
Vaccertify focuses on technology, banking, finance, and telecom experiences enhanced with leadership. They started thinking about this prime issue to find a simple and available path for patient convenience after the pandemic outbreak. Usually, having a hard copy certificate is not always so available for several purposes. Having these facts in mind, Vaccertify has been designed as a digital product that can break the barrier between your traditional medical-provided health record and whoever requires your vaccination to confirm any deal.
Tiara Lyons- the CEO & founder of Vaccertify, got this idea to initiate it when looking for a babysitter who needed to be vaccinated. She realized that without having an authentication from a stranger, it was always hard to trust. The traditional option was there to trace for medical records. But it creates less trustability between the two. Easily accessible and available certificate exists as a crying need and the best alternative way.
The Processes Behind Getting Certificate
Primarily, when a person gets a vaccine dose, he/she will be given a hard copy certification. You cannot carry this certificate as a digital remark, rather than just a usual hard copy provided for ten other diseases usually. Availability and authentication are the strength of Vaccertify. There are simple rules if you jump into their procedures.
1. Well, they require your original vaccination hard copy certificate, your government/national ID, and a picture of yours. That’s all that they need from you initially.
2. After rechecking and verifying your information, Vaccertify will generate you a digital ID, which you can bring to your smartphone, laptop, MacBook anywhere you want to.
3. Anybody who requires verifying your vaccination, simply the inquirer can scan the QR of your digital certificate. QR will generate a link that will take the person to the Vaccertify website. Then, the visitor can see the vaccination ID on the screen.
