SMART Health Cards are digital vaccination record cards of your COVID-19 vaccination history with a 2D barcode (commonly known as a QR code) from a trusted issuer such as an immunization registry, healthcare provider or pharmacy. It can be printed on paper or saved digitally. You can use a smartphone to scan it and securely save it to your smartphone or onto an app, or you can simply save or print it for future use.
The QR code can then be scanned by a compatible SMART Health Card verifier app at places like airports or large venues that require proof of vaccination, if you choose to share it. You will also be asked for proof of identification, such as photo ID, to ensure the privacy and security of your vaccination record.
You may have a SMART Health Card from your healthcare provider’s patient portal, such as MyChart, or from your retail pharmacy portal. The SMART Health Card is your consolidated COVID-19 vaccination record in CT WiZ available by mail or fax upon request or though the CT WiZ Public Portal.
