Is the UK Gearing Up for Covid Tech Passports?

Hired Help Limited, a provider of cutting-edge technologies and services, has announced that it has launched beta-testing for its smartphone application, Passport for Covid, which enables users who are immunized against COVID-19 to generate and share a digital vaccine certificate instantly.

Utilising secure technology that protects personal health records, Passport for Covid will support the global roll-out of COVID-19 medical vaccines and help to streamline how communities across the globe can safely reopen in light of the ongoing health pandemic.

“We are proud to launch our vaccination smartphone app in response to the COVID-19 crisis and to help keep our societies safe,” said James Sharkey, Founder and CEO of Hired Help Limited and Passport for Covid. “Passport for Covid is effective to use in a variety of global settings that require a trusted source of immunity from coronavirus, from large gatherings to aeroplane travel, and much more.”

The Passport for Covid smartphone app works by safely collecting users recent COVID-19 test results as well as their vaccination records from a medical provider. The app then issues users a digital certificate to demonstrate the status of their diagnostic testing and immunization while keeping sensitive health information private.

“Having had initial contact with The Ministers for Heath in both the UK and Ireland, signs are looking very positive for the Passport For Covid App,” added Sharkey
