The past year has been an eventful one for the whole world, with a new pandemic, Covid-19 on the loose and scientists around the world trying to find a vaccine to cure the sick and protect the world.
With the news that the vaccination is finally done, has given the world a new light towards a maskless environment (hopefully). Vaccination has been introduced and distributed in some parts of the world, preferably for frontline people and the elderly in some countries, while in some first world countries like the United States of America, vaccination is also available to the general public.
A company known as Healthvana has come up with a very convenient way to add your vaccination information to your smartphone. In simpler terms, vaccination records can now be saved to your Apple or Android phones, thanks to Apple Wallet and Google Play Pass.
The Corona vaccine is completed in two doses, so according to Healthvana, the basic purpose of this new feature is to save your vaccination information on your mobile phones and this feature will remind you to receive your second dose within the advised time frame.
Second, it’s much more convenient to carry your vaccination slip as proof on your mobile devices than it is to always need a piece of paper as proof in case the relevant authorities ask for it at schools, airports and airlines.
Between Apple and Android phones, the data stored on Apple devices is much more reliable and promising because vaccination data can only be stored in Apple wallet after receiving vaccination confirmation from local authorities, so no one can not simulate getting a vaccine done. Like all data in Apple Wallet, vaccination records are also fully secure, and Healthvana itself confirms that data is stored and protected on Amazon Web Services servers with special security systems in place to protect sensitive information.
Currently, this feature is only available to mobile users in Los Angeles in the United States of America through partnerships between Los Angeles County and Healthvana. It is currently unclear whether or not this feature will be available elsewhere in the world to the public.
