Washington [US], June 3: iPhone users can keep their Covid-19 vaccination card in Apple Wallet and use it to confirm that they have been fully vaccinated.

According to sources, customers and visitors must also demonstrate that they are up to date on their doses, even if these criteria only apply to personnel in particular instances. It's also more important than ever to double-check your vaccination status if you're going internationally.

The printed record, on the other hand, does not need to be maintained in your wallet or purse: you can immediately store your vaccination card on your phone to prevent it from being destroyed or lost.

If you have an iPhone, you may keep your Covid-19 vaccination card in Apple Wallet and use it whenever you need to show that you've been fully vaccinated. (You may also back up your data via the Health app.) You may now keep your Apple Watch card close at hand thanks to the WatchOS 8.1 update.

Step 1: Ask your vaccine provider for a downloaded file or a QR code of your vaccination proof. This is simply obtained from your immunization centre.
