Microsoft is part of a coalition of technology and health organizations working on the development of a digital COVID-19 vaccination passport that could be used by businesses and countries to enforce mandatory innoculation.
Announced Thursday, the Vaccination Credential Initiative aims to enable people to “demonstrate their health status to safely return to travel, work, school and life while protecting their data privacy,” the Financial Times reported.
Oracle and the Mayo Clinic also are part of the coalition, which is working with technology created by The Commons Project in partnership with the Rockefeller Foundation.
People who have been vaccinated for the coronavirus currently receive a piece of paper to document their vaccination, Paul Meyer, the chief executive of The Commons Project, told the Financial Times.
The coalition could develop a digital certificate that would be stored on a smartphone in a digital wallet or a physical QR code. (Read more from “Microsoft Helping Create COVID-19 Vaccination ‘Passport'” HERE)
