As the COVID-19 vaccine has begun to be distributed in the United States, Los Angeles County has developed a new method for residents to prove that they have been vaccinated. Citizens can now add COVID-19 vaccination certificates in the Apple Wallet app and Google Pay Passs.
According to reports BloombergThis is thanks to the collaboration between Los Angeles County and the startup Healthvana, which specializes in providing test results for patients with HIV and other sexually transmitted infections, and now the company’s test results for COVID-19 are the same.
The main idea of the virtual ticket is to use it to remind people to take the second dose of vaccine, in addition to proving who has taken the second dose. However, since this ticket can be easily accessed on a mobile phone, it can also prove that you have been vaccinated against COVID-1
The CEO of Healthvana said it will also provide recipients with a way to verify that they have been vaccinated, which can be placed in Apple Wallet or competing Google platforms, “to prove to airlines, to schools, to any Proof by the person who needs it.” Ramin Bastani.
Last week, Los Angeles County broke the record of COVID-19 deaths. Therefore, the county is doing everything possible to distribute vaccines “as soon as possible”. The county’s Department of Public Health Vaccine Preventable Disease Control Director.
Of course, for those who are not familiar with the technology, there are still paper cards to track the vaccines they received. At the same time, people are worried that such data will be stored online due to the possible disclosure of personal information, but Healthvana said that the company stores all content on HIPAA-compliant Amazon Web Services servers as safely as possible.
