SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KRON) – Attention Apple users! You will soon be able to add your vaccination records to the Apple Wallet app.

As of Monday, users can also store COVID-19 vaccination and test results in the Health app.

This is one of the features of iOS 15 that was launched this week.

The verifiable health record will be based on the SMART Health Cards.

Users will be able to share the health records from the app to:

  • Airlines
  • Event Venues
  • Other businesses that facilitate in-person interactions

According to Apple, “organizations that issue SMART Health Cards will soon be able to use a new button to let users know that they can securely download and store their vaccination information in the Health app and quickly add and present it from Wallet.”

Specific dates have not yet been released.
