The report states that Los Angeles County residents receiving COVID-19 vaccination can add digital records of their vaccination to the Apple Wallet app Bloomberg.
The county is working with Healthvana to add the vaccination certificate to the e-wallet app on the iPhone. Healthvana is a patient platform that medical service providers can use to provide patients with COVID-19 test results.
The vaccination record helps to ensure that the person who has been vaccinated will get the second shot in the course of two doses. Bloomberg It is speculated that it can be used as a proof of vaccination to obtain information such as flights and concerts.
Currently, the vaccination record of the e-wallet reminds the person who received the first vaccination to have a second appointment to ensure that everyone has been fully vaccinated.
Claire Jarashow, director of vaccine preventable disease control in Los Angeles, said: “We are really worried. We really want people to get a second dose again.” Bloomberg. “We just don’t have the ability to execute hundreds of medical records requests to find people’s first dose and when they need to get a second dose.”
The immunization status will also be tracked in the registration form. The vaccinated person will receive a paper card, but the card is easy to lose, so the e-wallet application can be used as a longer-term proof.
The county plans to send data to Healthvana every night and store the information on Amazon Web Services’ HIPAA-compatible servers. Jarashow told Bloomberg This is “safety we can do” and she will “be comfortable to use”.
As of December 22, Los Angeles has injected at least 38,850 doses of COVID-19 vaccine into healthcare providers, residents of long-term care facilities, and caregivers.
