MIAMI, Florida \u2013 June 8, 2021 \u2013 VXPASS, a blockchain-based platform built to manage, store and verify records for global COVID-19 vaccination programs, has today announced that it is opening its Digital Covid Card replacement to licensed medical practitioners and their patients all around the world. By opening the service to medical professionals directly, licensed practitioners can now offer patients the ability to record their vaccination records to a shared database on-chain, enabling them to hold and securely share their vaccination records digitally as needed, such as via a smartphone, without exposing their personal identity. VXPASS as a platform allows medical professionals to securely document a patient's status during the course of their personal COVID-19 vaccination program by creating a digitally signed version of the COVID-19 vaccination cards. Without storing any personally identifiable information, VXPass creates a record of all relevant vaccine data (including the type of vaccine given, the time each dose was administered) on the BSV blockchain, using techniques that protect patient privacy. The data application enables government bodies and health organizations to better monitor their vaccination programs in real-time while also giving control over access to individuals. The process of writing the vaccination details to the blockchain using VXPASS can be undertaken by the medical practice as part of the service they offer to their patients, meaning that patients will not need to interact directly with the blockchain. With today\u2019s new service offering, medical practitioners can now use the service to create digital records of new vaccinations as they occur, as well as digitizing existing vaccination records. VXPASS will offer tokens (built using RelayX and available for pre-sale immediately on both RelayX and VXPASS.com) which will entitle users to have their vaccination records written to the blockchain using the VXPASS platform at participating medical practices starting at $4.99. Participating medical practitioners may offer this service directly within their practices also. In the future, VXPASS will begin rolling out virtual visits with local doctors for those patients whose doctors are not currently enrolled. Speaking on today\u2019s announcement, Zachary Weiner, founder of VXPASS, said: \u2018At present, paper cards are the only way that most people are able to keep a record of their vaccinations. They\u2019re not only inconvenient and unreliable, but in many places, not acceptable as a valid proof of vaccination. With VXPASS, we solve that issue by digitizing vaccination records and placing them in the patient\u2019s custody, on the blockchain. This creates an immutable and verifiable signed record of a patient\u2019s vaccination which can be accessed and securely shared by them, anywhere at any time. Initially, VXPASS focused on creating secure patient owned records at the time of vaccination, but with today\u2019s announcement, our platform is now able to offer that same simplicity and security to all patients holding a valid record of vaccination record \u2013 something we see as a crucial step to putting the pandemic in the past and moving forward with our collective futures.\u2019 Also speaking, Jimmy Nguyen, Founding President of Bitcoin Association \u2013 the global industry organization that works to advance business with the BSV blockchain, said: \u2018The team at VXPASS have built an effective tool which leverages the power of the BSV blockchain to track vaccination records in a way which is more accurate and more efficient, without sacrificing patient privacy \u2013 demonstrating the tangible benefits that blockchain technology can offer today to empower personal health care data.\u2019 Media Contacts Justin Pauly Executive Director \u2013 International Affairs, VXPASS Justin.Pauly@vxpass.com Alex Speirs Head of Communications, Bitcoin Association firstname.lastname@example.org About VXPASS VXPASS offers a blockchain-based vaccine administration and verification platform with the digital infrastructure necessary to manage the administration of COVID-19 vaccination programs, as well as verification of a completed vaccine course, including the vaccine type and date, or dates, of administration.
