The first-in-the-nation vaccine certification, called the Excelsior Pass, will enable New Yorkers to pull up a code on their cell phone or a printout to prove they’ve been vaccinated against COVID-19 or recently tested negative for Covid. In addition to use at large-scale venues like Madison Square Garden, the app will enable people to have large wedding parties and other catered events. Governor Cuomo supports the $2.5-million app, paid for by state taxes, but is free to anyone with vaccination records or test results in New York. Amy Fairchild, dean of Ohio State University and a historian and ethicist, said the biggest challenges with such certifications will be cultural not technological. Requiring vaccination “is not something we have done before within this country outside of school systems and hospitals,” she said. Such efforts have typically fallen apart because of resistance to the idea of being required to do things. -GEG
Starting Friday, New Yorkers will be able to pull up a code on their cell phone or a printout to prove they’ve been vaccinated against COVID-19 or recently tested negative for the virus that causes it.
The first-in-the-nation certification, called the Excelsior Pass, will be useful first at large-scale venues like Madison Square Garden, but next weekwill be accepted at dozens of event, arts and entertainment venues statewide. It already enables people to increase the size of a wedding party, or other catered event.
The app, championed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo to support the recovery of industries most affected by the pandemic, is funded by the state and available for free to businesses and anyone with vaccination records or test results in New York.
Like an airline boarding pass, people will be able to prove their health status with a digital QR code – or “quick response” machine-readable label. They’ll need to download the Excelsior Pass app, enter their name, date of birth, zip code and answer a series of personal questions to confirm their identity. The data will come from the state’s vaccine registry and also will be linked to testing data from a number of pre-approved testing companies.
