Samsung is making it easier for you to present proof of Vaccination using your Galaxy smartphone. Samsung has worked with health care NGO The Commons Project to securely save immunisation status digitally within Samsung Pay, allowing you to gain entrance to a bar or restaurant that requires verification of COVID-19 Vaccination.
Go through the software’s authentication process after downloading the free CommonHealth app from the Google Play Store. You can then download your COVID-19 immunisation record on the CommonHealth app and add it to Samsung Pay once the software has safely verified your Vaccination status. Once downloaded, the Smart Health Card can be presented at restaurants, pubs, airports, and other locations that need proof of immunisation, as well as securely shared through QR code.
By the end of this week, the capability will be accessible on all Galaxy smartphones that enable Samsung Pay. That includes almost all Galaxy S smartphones since the Galaxy S6, the Note lineup since the Note 5, Samsung foldables, and the Galaxy A series, including the A32 5G and A50. Samsung Pay is also supported by a number of Samsung wearables.Rob White, senior director of product for Samsung Pay at Samsung Electronics America, said, “As more and more consumers use their Samsung devices as a digital wallet, it is a natural extension to make COVID-19 Vaccination records more easily accessible.”
Although much of the United States — and other nations across the world — reopened in the late spring and early summer, the outbreak of the extremely dangerous delta strain has prompted several organisations and governments to change their strategy to prevent infections.Many employers are now mandating their staff to be vaccinated, including IT heavyweights like Apple and Google, who have pushed back their return to work dates. Many venues now demand masks indoors, and other cities, such as New York and San Francisco, require residents and tourists to show proof of Vaccination before entering restaurants, clubs, gyms, and other establishments.
