SMART Health Card Digital Proof of Vaccination Launched in More Than 20 States

SMART Health Card Digital Proof of Vaccination Launched in More Than 20 States

In April 2021, the Biden administration made an announcement that the federal government would not be mandating a vaccine passport system in the United States. White House press secretary Jen Psaki stated:

Let me be very clear on this, I know there’s been lots of questions. The government is not now, nor will we be, supporting a system that requires Americans to carry a credential. There will be no federal vaccinations database and no federal mandate requiring everyone to obtain a single vaccination credential.1

Although the White House said it would not be involved in a national vaccine passport initiative, many private sector initiatives embarked on the business opportunity to create digital vaccine passports.2

One of these initiatives is the Vaccine Credential Initiative (VCI)3—a voluntary global coalition of public and private stakeholders including Microsoft, Salesforce, Google, Oracle, the Mayo Clinic, United Healthcare Group state governments and other health and technology companies, which have been involved in creating a verifiable digital proof of vaccination application called the SMART Health Card.4 5

SMART Health Card is Considered the “National Standard” Vaccine Passport”

While the federal government decided not to lead the development of a national vaccine passport, the SMART Health Card has been launched in twenty states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.6 At least four more states may eventually provide access to SMART Health Cards. Brian Anderson, MD, co-founder of the VCI and chief digital health physician at the MITRE Corporation said:

We’ve seen a notable uptick in states that have officially launched public portals where individuals can get verifiable vaccination credentials in the form of SMART Health Cards with a QR code.7

Currently, signing up for the SMART Health Card is voluntary. The digital application contains the person’s name, date of birth and the dates and manufacturers of vaccine doses, all contained within a type of bar code known as a QR code that can be scanned.

The SMART Health Card is open-source computer code that anyone can use to retrieve verified source of health data and produce the unique QR code. The digital cards are available from more than 400 sources including state health departments, pharmacies and health care organizations.8

QR Code Linked to SMART Health Card Interoperable to Work in Any State

One of the features of the QR code is that it is standardized and interoperable to work in any state. A resident of Virginia traveling to San Francisco can use the same SMART Health Card to prove vaccination status in California.9

Stakeholders believe that one of the greatest benefits of the SMART Health Card is that it cannot be forged because it has to be scanned to verify that it is legitimate.10 “This is a de facto standard,” said Rick Klau, California’s Chief Technology Innovation Officer. “This is essentially the one common way for residents to secure that digital copy and then use it.”11

Is SMART Health Card a Threat to Medical Privacy and Civil Rights?

Some states, such as Arizona, Mississippi, South Carolina, Oklahoma and Utah, have hesitated to adopt digital proof of vaccination, citing ethical concerns about medical privacy and threats to civil rights. However, many have already launched, or are in the process of launching, the SMART Health Pass for all residents, including Arizona, Mississippi and Utah.12

South Carolina plans to make the SMART Health Pass available to residents at the end of this month. Stephen White, director of the immunization division at the state’s health department said:

This isn’t a passport. This is essentially a COVID card that people get at their convenience because it’s their record.13

In a global forum on SMART Health Cards, former Governor of Utah Mike Leavitt positioned the health card as an individual’s right to have digital access to personal health information:

There’s always a question about who owns the data and the rights to access that data. But one thing is unchallengeable. And that is, I own a right to have my own data. And to have it in a form that I can present it conveniently for the kinds of things I want to do.14

International Collaboration

Many other countries have adopted the SMART Health Card. Some of these countries include Canada, Australia, Aruba, Cayman Islands, Singapore, Japan, Kenya and Rwanda.15 “And at an international level, we are continuing to see intense interest in a coordinated international approach, Brian Anderson, MD said. “And that has not diminished at all. I think quite the opposite.”16

SMART Health Cards Prepares for Future Pandemics

Stakeholders believe that although the COVID-19 pandemic is transitioning to an acceptance that SARS-CoV-2 will be endemic in populations for many years go come, the use for a vaccination verification system will always be needed in case of a future pandemic. “Yes, we’re going to get to an endemic phase of all of this, but that doesn’t change the need to continue to protect the citizens of a nation from highly transmissible and communicable diseases,” Dr. Anderson said.17

He added:

Vaccination verification will be increasingly important at an international level. And so if we want to enable all of our citizens from every state to be able to participate in the safe travel across international boundaries and to participate in international commerce, it’d be important for our government officials from every state to enable this.18

In 1999 and 2020, the president and co-founder of the National Vaccine Information Center Barbara Loe Fisher published reports outlining plans by the U.S. government to use vaccine and medical records tracking systems that would be linked to state, national and international electronic databases. She said the plan to create a national digital health card to force universal use of government-recommended and mandated vaccines began to take shape in the early 1990s.19

    Enjoying a short-term break from the covid madness in all of its forms. I think it was someone from Phizer who recently stated that a fourth covid booster would be necessary. Immunity is supposedly waning from the first two or three jabs. Did the jabs enhance anyone’s immunity to begin with? Three people who work in my department caught some form of covid after they took their miracle jabs. Lucky for me I have enough internal antioxidants to deal with the coronavirus variants, including the common cold, influenza and pneumonia naturally. Personally I’m on the lookout for immune system enhancers. No need here for death and disease accelerators in any form.

      We went with elderberry liquid drops bought at kroger/kings, ‘kick ass immune’ booster widely available with that specific label name, organic vitamin c chewables from natural grocerers, IW brand vitamin D, vitamin mineral fusion, their B vitamins, nascent iodine, also variety brand colloidal silver, and the ‘dna force’ from IW which we think really is special and worth the money.

      It’s just important to remember we can’t supplement our way to health. Our health is a direct reflection of the food we eat and lifestyle choice we also make. Personally I chose an organic non gmo diet for the most part and have spent a fortune on that over 20 years. It was that or give up smoking and drinking, not ready for that yet. And it was good for the children, they actually want fresh foods when given the choice against processed. My daughters will eat a dozen apples a day if we have them available, whole bags of carrots too. The Cornucopia Institute has ‘score cards’ for a great many food items which are highly recommended for consumers to get a better handle on what is food fraud, false claims, vs what is actually organic safe foods. Because of those score ratings we removed dozens of false claim items we were previously unaware were food fraud sourced or had false representations, and replaced them with legitimate organic. See you later fake old Horizon Organic, what a rip we ever paid for that.

      The point being is that we only have so much space for ‘bio toxic accumulation’. So if you eat fast food regularly, you lost every bit of available space for other pleasurable toxic intake. Same for not paying attention to toxic oils and hydrolyzed salts (one chemical bond away from being actual anti freeze), basically everything processed. Just switch to Costco brand olive oil exclusively, along with real Tillamook brand butter and short cut the never ending maze of what is and is not a safe oil and butter substance. Get ‘celtic sea salt’ from online and then use a pepper grinder to serve it, that particular salt reportedly has over 90 minerals, it is the most mineral rich substance you can consume which helps your body utilize other beneficial nutritional molecules one may consume. By paying more and reaching for legitimate non gmo organic with fewer toxic food ingredients, we can carve out space for the occasional cola, fast food, beer, etc. We eat meat daily and can’t afford organic, so organic other products also help bring a fair balance. And we eat a heck of a lot organic rice from our oyama brand rice steamer, which has a stainless steel cauldron and does not use forever chemicals or no stick liners. It’s always better to just steel brush clean things, also why we cook on iron skillets for almost everything stove based.

      I’m still in a state of shock that all the non gmo healthy food crowd went with the covid rnma manipulation jab. We were saying; we did not just spend a fortune on organic non gmo over the past two decades, to only turn around and purposefully genetically modify our own bodies. The fear of transmutagenic cross over of genetically modified substances is founded in reasonable hypothesis. It happens with plants and that’s a fact… (think gmo mosquitoes as the latest in a long line of transmutagenic tinkering concerns.) This sadly illustrates that many people although on board with the healthy food movement, had not truly understood what genetic modification is, the difference between gmo manipulation and hybridization, and how far reaching genetic modification can become.

      And now the covid rnma trait is in the human gene pool en masse… We still are eagerly awaiting meaningful studies, hypotheses, and other scientific information if the covid spike which the jabbed shed like cats and dogs may have the capacity to force ‘vaccination by mere contact’. As well as the host of other possible spontaneous uptake methods such as sexual activity, kissing, sharing a glass, using public restrooms, and also activity such as receiving blood at hospitals in emergency or surgery scenarios, etc. Then there are also doctors talking about the importance of never cross breeding this in to our lineage because generations from now, if we don’t keep track who had it, everyone will one day get this rnma artificial spike protein generation trait eventually.

      These are serious questions which demand immediate answers. One hopes for a solution to take this trait out but reverse transcription… You know, it’s easier to break things then fix them and that is exactly what the rnma vaccine did, break the heirloom status of the human races various genetic traits. If one could perhaps use botany based language to help people get their minds around the gravity of our latest round of mad science. So much for worrying about nuclear and radiation, a ticking time bomb just hit our entire population and it will be somehow eventually realized with in the future if not reckoned with now. Ya all owe your conspiracy pals whom warned you about this a sincere apology. But we won’t accept the apology and instead will demand a serious shift to preventative and corrective research immediately. Please and thank you. And just like that we do a 180 and think perhaps publicly available vaccine identification are a good thing, tied to your parents and grand parents as well, so people whom have polluted their blood lines do not in turn one day pollute others. Strange but true, that’s the gravity of what we will one day deal with. Remember the movie Gattaca? So yeah, eat healthy and take your supplements but that’s not going to be enough long term.

    The Smart card will just identify you as someone not smart enough to know that the gene-altering shot can still disable or kill you for 5 years after.

    All for a useless injection that saves you from nothing, is unsafe at any dose and could quite possibly maim you or kill you. No thanks. Smart health card? That’s the biggest joke of the century, besides joey, because there is never any concern for your health from big pharma or the medical mafia. It all about selling fake cures for big bucks.

    That is what this fake pandemic was always about. Surveillance and control of the population as we move to a social credit system that has control of your funds and freedom of movement. There is no virus. There never was.

    We need to fight this concept at this beginning stage – if we let this happen there is no end to it. Our entire lives will be digitalized and tracked – not just our vaccine status This is the worst thing that could happen as a result of COVID. It’s bad enough that they tried to force “vaccinations” in our great USA. We must never let them now track us digitally. Never There is no coming back from this if this takes hold and becomes even a part of any law

    This country is in such serious trouble. Control and tracking have been the pillars of this entire pandemic. The virus was real definitely. Lack of treatment , free exchange of ideas with our doctors and the medical community along with government mandates made it much worse than need be. It became so political with the Tyrant Fauci at the helm whose only objective was not in the best interest of the American people but his own “gain of wealth” and pleasing the elite.
    Fauci published a “playbook” foe ICUs that lead to the death of so many. If they didn’t follow his protocol-the hospital did not get paid-boy were they paid well for every covid death.

    OH, by the way….Texe Marrs’ book PROJECT L.U.C.I.D shows how they promoted a “smart card” during Clinton’s presidency too. It was supposed to be a national ID card, which people rejected!

    I pray that people still have SOME ability to think for themselves and REFUSE this garbage and BOYCOTT THESE COMPANIES THAT ARE FOR THIS DUMB CARD.

    They can also use this card to see if you are qualified to buy alcohol, guns, what equipment your can operate, what jobs your qualified for.
