The Covid-19 vaccine is making its debut in several countries, including France. On the US side, Apple’s iPhone Wallet app can be used to prove that one has been vaccinated. It also works on Android with a corresponding app.
There is currently evidence of the Covid-19 vaccine in Apple Wallet in Los Angeles County. The county has partnered with Healthvana to add the proof on their iPhone or Android smartphone.
What’s the point It’s simple: make sure people who have been vaccinated get their second dose within a few weeks. According to Bloomberg, this could potentially also be useful for various accesses in the future. For example, if you show you have been vaccinated by showing the Apple Wallet app, you can fly, go to concerts, and more.
For now, however, the point is to alert people who have received the Covid-19 vaccine not to miss the second dose. “We are really concerned. We really want people to come back for that second dose, ”says a Los Angeles County health official.
As of December 22, Los Angeles County has administered 38,850 doses of the Covid-19 vaccine.
