Google Pay now lets Australians save their vaccination cards on smartphones

by Jeremy

Vaccination certificates are increasingly important in almost every public place as lockdown restrictions due to COVID-19 start to ease. For Australians, Google makes it easier to access their vaccination cards on the best Android phones and show it when necessary wherever they go.

Google has announced that Google Pay users in Australia can now save their vaccination certificates on the app and quickly access the document if they need to prove at a restaurant, for example, that they’ve been fully vaccinated. The vaccine information can also be accessed even if you’re not connected to the internet, and it’s available in the exact location in the Pay app where your cards and other passes are saved in.

People who received their second dose of vaccine in the country can also log in to Medicare through the MyGov website, view their COVID-19 digital certificate, and save it to their phone. Alternatively, they can download their vaccination certificate through the Express Plus Medicare app. The feature was first rolled out in the U.S. in June, when Google updated the Passes API to allow developers affiliated with healthcare organizatioblic health agencies to develop a digital card that can be used to demonstrate an individualthatccination status.
