Digital vaccination certificate

DIGITAL
VACCINATION
CERTIFICATE

A PERFECT
DIGITAL
SUPPLEMENT

The official yellow WHO Certificates of Vaccination and Prophylaxis pass is commonly used as proof of vaccination status and is accepted internationally. On a case-by-case basis it completely serves its purpose but when applied in high-volume checks, the booklet format is bound to meet limitations. For instance at the check-in counter at the airport or at a stadium entrance, verification would take an enormous amount of time plus individuals are hauling around an additional document. The solution: UBIRCH's Digital Vaccination Certificate – an extremely privacy-friendly, digital representation of a vaccination status. 

UBIRCH is a member of the Good Health Pass Collaborative (GHPC) – an open, inclusive, cross-sector initiative to create a blueprint for interoperable digital health credentials to help restore global travel and restart the global economy.

The technology described on this page is in use in the pilot projects in the districts of Altötting and Zollernalbkreis.

HOW DOES
THE DIGITAL
VACCINATION
CERTIFICATE WORK

  • 1. DATA COLLECTION AND VACCINATION

    The Digital Vaccination Certificate is created on-site at the vaccination center or at a doctor's office. The required personal and vaccination data can be directly transferred by the local system. Enabling integrations, such as in vaccination management systems and Excel, already exist – others are possible. Alternatively, data is entered via a lean web interface or app. Thanks to extensive automation, the effort involved remains minimal and can be easily integrated into the vaccination process. The offer is voluntary.

  • 2. CREATION AND HAND OVER

    Based on the collected data on-site, an anonymous, immutable digital fingerprint (technically a root hash) is created and anchored by UBIRCH in a Blockchain of “govdigital” who in turn store their Blockchain infrastructure highly secure and data protection-friendly on German servers. Because the data itself is not transmitted, the solution is GDPR-compliant and meets the highest data protection requirements. Internationally we can work or partner with any entity offering equivalent services to "govdigital". The vaccinated individual receives the Digital Vaccination Certificate as a QR code, together with the vaccination information. The QR code can be displayed in various formats: electronically as PDF or by email, as printout on site, in any app for convenient health data management, or as a sticker in the analog vaccination book. 

    It is essential to emphasize that the vaccinated individual owns this QR code and is the sole decider as to whom he or she presents it for verification purposes. There is no central storage location. It would also be possible to integrate the system into any domestic COVID-19 tracking app or into international solutions such as the “IATA Travel Pass”or most other international tracking apps.

  • 3. VERIFICATION

    If required, the Digital Vaccination Certificate can prove to third parties the immutable vaccination certificate at any time. All it takes is for the QR code to be scanned and the personal details compared with a valid proof of identity.

    The QR code can be scanned with special apps for verification, e.g. the one developed by Lufthansa Industry Solutions. Alternatively, the QR code can also be scanned with a regular smartphone camera. In this case, the verification needs no further technical requirements and after scanning the QR code, a govdigital verification website opens. 
    Verifiers should always carefully check for the authenticity of the verification website.
    At no point in the process, any personal or vaccination data is transmitted to a local server, as the computing operations required for verification are performed within the browser.

AND THIS IS HOW IT WORKS:
