As Coronavirus Vaccines are being administered all over the world, a team of tech giants and medical experts such as Oracle, Microsoft and Salesforce have come together to design a digital vaccination cars with the goal of allowing people to resume their travel plans ASAP.
The team, called the Vaccination Credential Initiative is directing its attention towards offering people a secure digital means of proving their vaccination status and that they were immunized to COVID-19. According to reports this digital proof will soon be a requirement for United States airports and airlines to allow for boarding and travel. The initiative seeks to accomplish their goal by using the SMART Health Cards, in addition to a QR code for records access for those who don’t have smartphones.
The executive Vice President of Oracle’s Global Business Units, Mike Sicillia had this to say: “As the world begins to recover from the pandemic, having electronic access to vaccination, testing, and other medical records will be vital to resuming travel and more,” he said. “This process needs to be as easy as online banking. We are committed to working collectively with the technology and medical communities, as well as global governments, to ensure people will have secure access to this information where and when they need it.”
