With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, humanity has faced new challenges, and different types of vaccinations have been provided as a response to the virus. However, the paper-based immunization status cards currently provided by clinics and hospitals can be stolen, lost, or falsified.

Our Blockchain Based Vaccine Passport System provides reliable and secure vaccination status of users, which cannot be falsified and are secured on the internet.

Our system is accessed by patients and vaccine administrators through an easy-to-use web interface. After receiving a vaccine, users upload a copy of their vaccine record as well as some supplementary data. Vaccine clinics and hospitals then use our web application to validate any vaccine records uploaded by their patients. Once a patient’s vaccine record is verified as authentic, the patient can request a vaccine passport from our system that can be used to verify their vaccination status whenever needed.

The vaccine verification is built on Blockchain technology that provides a safe and secure way to apply for vaccination status, which cannot be changed or deleted following verification by the client’s health care provider.

Our system provides ease of use for individuals wanting absolute proof of their vaccination status and peace of mind for anyone needing to verify vaccination status beyond any doubt.

The front end of our system is developed using HTML, CSS, Angular and TypeScript. Our back end uses Spring Boot, Web3j, and a PostgreSQL database hosted on AWS. Our Blockchain is built on Ethereum, utilizing Solidity for our Smart Contracts.
