Rite Aid is working with secure identity company Clear to offer its customers digital vaccine cards. With Clear’s digital vaccine proof and Health Pass offering, customers who receive a COVID-19 vaccination at a Rite Aid store can supplement their paper vaccination card with a verified digital version that will be accessible on their mobile device.
“We’ve been proud to fight the COVID-19 pandemic on the front lines, offering widespread testing and administering more than seven million vaccinations — as well as providing whole-health advice to help communities get thriving again,” Rite Aid COO Jim Peters said. “With states, businesses and events beginning to require COVID-19 vaccinations for various activities, we’re making it convenient and easy to verify vaccination status so members of our communities can get back to doing the things they love to do together.”
With Clear, patients can link their digital vaccine card to Clear’s Health Pass screening solution, which is used by organizations to verify vaccination status. To create a digital vaccine card, patients just download and install the free Clear app, then scan the QR code from the email or SMS communication sent from Rite Aid after the vaccine is administered.
“With Clear, you are always you and it shouldn’t take a wallet full of cards to prove your identity and vaccination status,” said Caryn Seidman-Becker, Clear CEO. “Today, proof of vaccination is more important than ever, and we are excited to work together with Rite Aid to help empower patients with an easy and secure digital vaccine card.”
Once the app has been downloaded and the QR code has been scanned, a digital vaccine card is created and users can share their proof of vaccination with anyone looking to verify their vaccination status, with the ability to link to Health Pass for frictionless entry at places that use the Health Pass.
