Whether they realize it or not, about 200 million people in the United States now likely have access to a Covid-19 digital vaccine card.

The digital pass known as the SMART Health Card is voluntary and minimal by design to protect personal information. It has a person’s name, date of birth and the dates and brands of vaccination doses, all contained within a type of scannable bar code known as a QR code.

The article goes on to state the following:

And after a relatively quiet start, it has built momentum in recent months as more states and companies have signed on, making it something of a de facto national digital vaccine card.


The report notes that any suggestion of a vaccine “passport” has faced opposition, and even been banned, in Republican-led states, and the Biden administration said in March of last year that it would leave any creation of such a national health pass up to the private sector.

But now, the digital cards, which contain an open-source computer code that can be used to ping a verified source of health data and produce a unique QR code, are widely available from over 400 sources including states, pharmacies and health care organizations, NBC News reported.

The QR codes allow a restaurant, concert venue or any participating business to use a scanner app to verify that it’s legitimate. If a person loses their card, they can also re-download the QR code.

Dr. Brian Anderson, chief digital health physician at MITRE, a research nonprofit, and an architect of the health cards, touted, “The beautiful thing about this is that this multistate coalition is a coalition of the willing.”

The report states that the existence of the digital vaccine card “is a triumph for a loose coalition of technologists, nonprofit groups and mostly Democratic states that championed the development of a digital vaccine card even before the first coronavirus shots were administered.”

So far, thirteen states are participating in the program, including:

  • California
  • Colorado
  • Connecticut
  • Hawaii
  • Illinois
  • Louisiana
  • Massachusetts
  • New Jersey
  • New York
  • Rhode Island
  • Utah
  • Virginia
  • Washington

Puerto Rico also uses the program, and several other states are privately exploring the possibility coming on board.

Jamie Zawinski, a software developer who owns a night club, DNA Lounge, in San Francisco, declared, “We won’t be safe until venues are able to *require* SMART Health QR codes and stop accepting paper cards, or photos of cards. And that won’t happen until state or local governments mandate that.”

  1. Well, my mane will never appear in that app. Neither with my children’s or Grandchildren. We’ll never drink the evil cool aid.

  2. I’m furious that Utah has joined other liberal states to join this travesty. I don’t recognize my state or its values anymore. I’m tired of liberal leaders masquerading as conservatives.

  3. Can’t have voter ID. Yet they champion vaccine passports. Next thing ya know they will want to chip you just to make sure you don’t come in contact with an unvaccinated sub human in their eyes.

  4. Jamie Zawinski, a software developer who owns a night club, DNA Lounge, in San Francisco, declared, “We won’t be safe until venues are able to *require* SMART Health QR codes and stop accepting paper cards, or photos of cards.

    Who the H*ll are We? San Francisco “treats” or normal freedom loving Americans?

  5. You need to prove what that you have a vaccine but still can get the damn virus. But illegals can come in without ID to vote. You cant go into a bar in your own country, but illegals can walk in to the country free and clear. Now this makes so much since. Dumb shits voted for these dumb shits.

  6. This is what the past two years has been all about. This is why they are pushing the jab and trying to get every man, woman and child “vaccinated “. This is the control weapon they will use to load all your personal data onto a digital platform. They want to tie in your medical, financial and travel data and eventually your carbon credits and social credits. If you misbehave you’re access will be denied.

  7. It’s a tracking andmind control device that has all their health information in there. If I had the vaccines I would not get that mark of the beast 666. It amazes me how stupid people are. So I understand in Washington state and Illinois they have concentration camps for people who haven’t taken the Covid jail so they can put it in there and kill us

  8. There won’t be enough prisons for those committing crimes against humanity if sane people ever regain control of our government.

  9. Look up ESG scores….coming to banks too…stands for Environmental, Social and Governance to track whether you are a good little sheep in everything you do! They will NOT stop until they can track and control your every move and with Transhumanism…next they go for your thoughts!! People better wake the F up!!!

  10. Figures my state, Washington, is on the list. I won’t be volunteering for any of that unless it’s one that says PROUDLY NOT VACCINATED!

  11. How can pple be so naive & stupid. It’s nobody’s business what shots we have. Even for our children, the educational system goes too far if they extend beyond the true & tried vaccines! Never ever should flu shot or CO19 shots be required. Vaccine pass is only for CO19,& it’s not even an immunization. It’s ineffective! Just say no!

  12. Sounds like Nazi Germany all over again but this time in America! I guess are elected officials forgot they work for us and do not control us!

  13. “minimal by design to protect personal information. It has a person’s name, date of birth… “
    It is simple to garner anyones personal information with a name and dob…
