    Vaccine Passports

    Vaccine Passport Kiosk

    Vaccine Passport Kiosk

    August 2021 — More and more businesses are requiring vaccination for employees. Along with that are restaurants (New York e.g.) where patrons need to be checked.  Meanwhile, FDA approval is imminent and could become a watershed event

    Immigration and travel passport kiosks now have to consider vaccination status

    What is the battlefield for “Vaccine Check-In Credentials” then?

    CLEAR has the most robust system at this point, not only operating in airports but also extended to hospitality venues such as hotels.  Many of the temperature sensing kiosks came with barcode scanners. They could provide some level of authorization based on the data while also never storing any data (a variant of PCI validation)

    Obviously this is a developing story and we will post periodic updates here.  Thanks KioWare for the info at Google API. Contact KioWare for more information on implementation.
