One NJ health system has partnered with a tech company to create digital vaccination cards

State is reviewing options for making ‘consumer access to their immunization record for COVID-19 more accessible’

The idea of a vaccine passport remains controversial in New Jersey. When it comes to digitizing people’s vaccination cards, New Jersey has gone from not there yet to under review. Department of Health Commissioner Judy Persichilli says that “several systems are under review right now to make consumer access to their immunization record for COVID-19 more accessible.”

Private companies are already one step ahead. Atlantic Health System has partnered with CLEAR to give any of its patients who were vaccinated in New Jersey a way to get a digital vaccination card.
