Incorporate COVID-19 vaccination details into Apple Wallet and Health with verifiability.
Incorporate trustworthy documentation of your COVID-19 vaccination by integrating a vaccination card into your Apple Wallet and downloading and securely storing verifiable records of your vaccinations and test results in the Health app.
Regarding reliable vaccination and test result recordsIn your iPhone or iPod touch's Health app, you can securely maintain certified versions of your COVID-19 vaccination, test result, and recovery certificate records. These verifiable records, digitally signed by a healthcare provider or authority, are akin to traditional paper documents bearing an official seal. Within the Health app, you can identify these verifiable health records by the presence of a checkmark, indicating their unaltered state since creation.
You have the ability to obtain verifiable vaccination and test result records if your vaccine or test result provider supports this format. It is advisable to consult your provider to ascertain whether they do in fact support verifiable health records.
Starting from iOS 15.4, the EU Digital COVID Certificate (EU DCC) is compatible with this system.1 To gain a deeper understanding of the supported technology for verifiable health records, please refer to this resource.

Adding your verifiable health records:
Depending on where you received your COVID-19 vaccinations and tests, you have the option to securely download and store your verifiable health records in the Health app using either a QR code or downloadable file.

- To access your health records in the Health app, start by opening the app and tapping on the Browse option.
- From there, select either Immunizations or Lab Results.
- Choose the specific health record you wish to view.
The health records stored in the Health app provide important information, including your full name, date of birth, details of administered vaccines or tests, and a QR code linked to that particular record.
Sharing your health records
You have the option to share your verifiable health records with approved third-party apps that request access to this information. When an app requires access to your health records, you can decide which specific records to share, and those records will only be shared once with the app. Rest assured that third-party apps do not retain continuous access to your verifiable health records.
The advantage of sharing these records, which are presented in a verifiable format, is that businesses or event venues can verify the authenticity of the records you provide. This means that when you share your lab results or immunization records with third-party apps, they can confirm that those records were issued by the respective vaccine provider or test facility and have remained unaltered since their issuance.
It's important to note that Apple is not involved in the verification process conducted by third-party apps and does not have access to the data you import or share.
Here are a couple of additional points to consider:
- Verifiable vaccination, test result, and recovery certificate records can be added wherever the necessary technology is supported.
- Wallet does not support the storage of test result or recovery certificate records.
