Masscheutes Launches Digital COVID Vaccination Card System

Masscheutes has launched a digital vaccination card system, the Baker administration announced Monday. My Vax Records, as the tool is called, lets people see their vaccination history and pull up a card that’s similar to the paper CDC cards that have been given out when people are vaccinated.

Officials said that the tool’s announcement does not mean a vaccination mandate in Masscheutes. The Baker administration does not require anyone to show their My Vax Records to get into any place, the tool is there to help residents who want to show their vaccination history.

Massachusetts Launches Digital COVID Vaccination Card SystemThe tool launched days before Boston began requiring vaccinations for indoor spaces, like restaurants, gyms, and entertainment venues. Officials say that the website users can enter their information and can expect to get a response within a day.When it’s ready, they’ll get a text message with a link to their record and a smart health card, with a QR code that can be saved to apps like the Apple Wallet or by taking a screenshot. The vaccine card sent by the state shows the user’s name, birth date and the vaccination dates doses they received.

The system is run by the SMART Health Card open-source platform off of data provided in the Masscheutes Immunization Information System. Among the states already using the system are New York and Rhode Island. Connecticut launched its own program last month.
