Walmart has announced that it will be offering pharmacy account holders with access to a digital COVID-19 vaccine record to help them keep a copy on their smartphone for easy access. The initiative comes as a free-of-charge extension of the vaccine record provided by the CDC and will allow for a person's records to be securely yet accessibly stowed on their device. This will also make it easier for consumers to print their vaccination record via Walmart.com or Samsclub.com.
Executive Vice President, Walmart Health & Wellness Cheryl Pegus spoke further on the new digital COVID-19 vaccine record saying, "We are committed to giving people convenient, secure access to their health data, starting with COVID-19 vaccine immunization records. Our tool gives individuals a safe method to privately keep track of this information on their smartphone or computer, while also encouraging them to take ownership of their health data by determining exactly where, when, or if they share their documentation."
