Apple Wallet is getting verifiable COVID-19 vaccination cards
Jon Fingas


There’s a real chance you’ll need proof of a COVID-19 vaccination to enter certain venues, and Apple is hoping it can save you the hassle of digging up an email or carrying a physical card in your pocket. The company is bringing verifiable COVID-19 vaccination cards to Wallet as part of a future iPhone software update. The feature will take advantage of the international SMART Health Cards standard (already in use in several states) to produce proof of vaccination, sign it with a private key and create a public key to verify your info.

The just-released iOS 15 already lets you store verifiable vaccination and test results in the Health app using the same standard. You’ll receive your records through QR codes, downloadable files or healthcare providers who use Health Records on iPhone.

Apple is promising strict privacy for all your data. The company won’t have access to your imported or shared records, and all info must be encrypted and securely stored when transferred elsewhere. The tech giant also can’t see your vaccination card or how you’ve used it. You can share information with “approved” third-party apps, but only on a one-time basis.

Apple didn’t say when it might release the card update. This won’t thrill you if you’re anxious about the very concept of sharing your vaccination status with a concert venue or restaurant. However, it should at least streamline the process — important when you’re already running late for a show.

all this information has been gather, they’re just letting us know about it now. facebook, myspace, apple/android pay, etc……. all our *** has to get government approval before being released. also you might be into privacy but what about your friends, family and other people in your circle…

I mean directly on your ways with you, always on, mobile device.

if any person has given any social site their state id they're nuts. same for any disease or health status.

I don't recall being able to add your state id to any mobile wallet prior to apples announcement, so that's pretty new to me.

covid pass, or any disease status being officially banked is new too. if I'm wrong lemme know.

the gps and banking info have been there a while. But now you are an official profile, a person who at their whim is subject to having your privacy invaded at their whim, when privacy beyond privacy is their nbr 2 or 3 selling point.

on top of saying, yes we're just gonna scan your phone when we feel like it.

something bad is brewing man.

I think a few states accept the use of digital IDs (not sure which ones though). We've had this in Louisiana for a couple of years now (2018) and was actually the first state to offer it.

I doubt we join in with Apple since that defeats the purpose of our state's app.

business hasnt slumped after the implementation of the vaccine passport as the tinfoil hat people had threatened
where i live its like 88% vaccination rate
as of october 15th to receive medical care you must be vaccinated
so science deniers and n*ggas scared of needles are gonna hafta weigh out their priorities
It’s really not that bad…just don’t get the shot. fu*k everything you said too…i kept traveling since 2019 so sucks you chose to stay in the house when you didn’t have to but that’s the life of a sheep.
