Once someone has had both, then it serves as a vaccination record. It can then be shown as proof that you’ve been immunised. This can then be shown “to prove to airlines, to prove to schools, to prove to whoever needs it”. In addition to the Apple Wallet, Healthvana CEO Ramin Bastani also said that it can be used on the “competing Google platform”.
The idea is a good one. Especially once you’ve had both doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, being able to show proof of the fact that using the phone sounds are very convenient indeed. But for that to happen, we’ll need a similar initiative locally.
