Google is about to launch a COVID-19 vaccine certification card system on Android. Referred to as COVID Card, they will be able to immediately show the vaccination location and type received. The service will allow you to save the cards from the website or from the application of the health organization that issued them, but also via text message or e-mail. In addition to this data, the COVID Cards will also show the result of any swabs.
Google will offer the option to save COVID Cards on the home screen, so you can easily show them when needed. According to an official communication, the cards will not be stored in the cloud and the company will not collect any information for commercial purposes, although it may retain some data for statistical purposes. You will not need to download Apple Pay to use the system, but Play Protect certification will be required.
For the time being, the service will be made available only in the United States, in collaboration with governments and local health agencies. It is very likely that Google is working on an international distribution. However, previously the company has launched various services to help its users manage the pandemic emergency.
