Vaccine Credentialing Activities: A Complicated Path Forward in the US (Part 1) – Potential Sources of Data
As COVID-19 vaccination increases the US is preparing for a phased reopening. A key factor of that reopening in the United States and some other countries may be a requirement for individuals to prove that they have been vaccinated against COVID-19. “Proof” will likely be embodied in a paper – or perhaps electronic – certificate whose source and contents can be independently verified to ensure validity. Uses of such a certificate include international travel, and perhaps also domestic travel (like what is being proposed in the European Union), admission to large venues such as sporting events or other entertainment, and even school or business admission.
