Microsoft, Salesforce, Oracle are designing a digital vaccination passport

A digital vaccination passport Covid, jointly developed by a team of health and technology companies, as governments, airlines and other entities will begin to seek confirmation of the vaccination the citizens.

On Thursday, was announced a new group named Vaccination Credential Initiative, which are companies Microsoft, Salesforce and Oracle, as well as the non-profit Mayo Clinic.

The VCI said it wants to develop technology allowing individuals to obtain an encrypted digital copy of vaccination credentials that can be stored in a digital wallet of their choice, such as Apple Wallet or Google Pay. If one does not have smartphone, may receive paper with printed QR codes containing verifiable credentials.


«The goal of the Vaccination Certification Initiative is to give people digital access to their vaccination records"He said Paul Meyer, CEO of the non-profit The Commons Project, who is a member of the team.

He added that technology must enable people "return safely to travel, work, school and life, while protecting the privacy of their data».

Bill Patterson, executive vice president and general manager of the software company Salesforce, said that his company wants to help organizations "to adapt all aspects of the vaccine management life cycle and to integrate closely with the offers of other members of the coalition, something that will help us all return to everyday life."

«With a single platform to provide safe and continuous operations and deepen trust with customers and employees, this coalition will be critical to supporting public health and wellness", Added Patterson.


Citizens' views on the vaccine, however, differ, with many saying they do not intend to get the vaccine. According to a survey, one in five Britons refuses to be vaccinated.

Millions of people around the world also do not want to be vaccinated, for various reasons, according to opinion polls.

It is a difficult issue that governments are considering and are already working on introducing systems that would allow authorities and possibly businesses, to know if a person has been vaccinated or not.

Η China has released a health app that shows if a person has symptoms so they can check in at hotels or use the subway. In Chile, citizens who have recovered from the Koran virus have received certificates.

On December 28, the Minister of Health of Spain Salvador Illa said the country would set up a registry to know who refused to be vaccinated and that the database could be communicated throughout Europe.

A Ryanair spokesman said "vaccination will not be necessary for flights" when asked by CNBC if it would ever prevent unvaccinated people from flying on its aircraft. THE British Airways, Qantas and EasyJet did not respond to a request for comment from CNBC.

He is a law lecturer at York University Isra Black and Lisa Forsberg"It's not easy to say whether it would be morally permissible for a state to impose restrictions on people who refuse a vaccine," a postdoctoral fellow at Oxford University who studies medical ethics told CNBC.
