In this webinar, trusted identity and background services leaders Sterling and ID.me will discuss their joint launch of a convenient, highly secure vaccine verification solution that will be widely available to Americans:

  • Over 36 million Americans have ID.me digital wallets, and one million more are added every 15 days. 40,000+ business and organizations rely on Sterling, including for COVID-19 testing
  • Digital vaccine and testing verification is critical to the American economy, speeding safe return to workplaces, entertainment venues, schools, volunteer activities, and more
  • A QR code in the ID.me portable digital wallet can be displayed on a mobile phone or printed, making immediate verification possible at a workplace or other venue
  • Employers will be able to access results through Sterling platforms, fully integrated into their existing workflows 
  • Individuals control access to their verification, which can be proof of vaccination, proof of on-site testing, or proof of at-home testing
  • Harris Poll results show many Americans would feel more confident visiting businesses or using a gig service with digital vaccine verification in place — especially if individuals control their own information

The digital vaccine verification, which will include a QR code for ease of use either on a mobile device or with a printed copy, will show if an individual has: 

  • Been vaccinated against COVID-19
  • Been tested for COVID-19 at on-site testing
  • Used an at-home test for COVID-19 exposure
