NEW DELHI: Your Covid vaccination certificate will soon be in tune with internationally acceptable norms to be accepted as proof for various purposes like air travel, both domestic and international.
R S Sharma, CEO of National Health Authority, has told TOI that certificates being issued are being aligned with “fast healthcare interoperability resources” (FHIR). Which means that once, and if, proof of vaccination becomes a mandatory, fully-vaccinated Indians will be able to show a globally acceptable proof on their mobiles.
“Our verifiable digital vaccination certificates are downloadable and can be stored on mobiles. We are aligning this process with global standards so that they are internationally acceptable,” Sharma said.
“Our certificates are already digitised. After the first jab, people get a provisional certificate. And after the second jab, the final certificate is issued. These are on cloud; are tamper and forgery-proof and can be digitally certified for being used in times to come for all kinds of verifications,” Sharma, who also heads the empowered group on Covid-19 vaccine administration, said.
