With the ongoing political controversy over coronavirus vaccinations, government agencies and private companies struggle with strategies to verify inoculations to protect people from possible infection. The issuance of vaccine verifications or “vaccine passports” is one solution to prove the holder has been immunized and therefore no longer considered a risk to others. However, there are ongoing privacy concerns about vaccine passports and fears that they may compromise individual health records. The number of forged vaccine cards and vaccination passports is on the rise, making the need for a foolproof form of vaccine validation even more acute.
