Rite Aid to Offer Digital COVID-19 Vaccine Card

Customers vaccinated at any Rite Aid location can supplement their paper vaccination card with a verified digital version that can be accessed on their mobile device.

Rite Aid has announced plans to offer a digital vaccine card to give customers the ability to easily share proof of COVID-19 vaccination. Via a partnership with secure identity company CLEAR, customers vaccinated at any Rite Aid location can supplement their paper vaccination card with a verified digital version that can be accessed on their mobile device.

The digital vaccine card can be linked to CLEAR’s Health Pass screening system, which is used by more than 130 organizations, including professional sports leagues, major event venues, and travel destinations, according to a company press release.

“With CLEAR, you are always you and it shouldn’t take a wallet full of cards to prove your identity and vaccination status,” said CLEAR CEO Caryn Seidman-Becker in a press release. “Today, proof of vaccination is more important than ever, and we are excited to work together with Rite Aid to help empower patients with an easy and secure digital vaccine card.”

Customers vaccinated at Rite Aid can enroll in the free CLEAR app and scan their SMART QR code from an email or SMS notification received from Rite Aid after COVID-19 vaccine administration.

After the digital vaccine card is created, users can share their verified proof of vaccination anywhere. Further, the digital vaccine card automatically links to Health Pass to create a frictionless entry at participating locations.

“We’ve been proud to fight the COVID-19 pandemic on the front lines, offering widespread testing and administering more than seven million vaccinations – as well as providing whole-health advice to help communities get thriving again,” said Jim Peters, chief operating officer, Rite Aid, in a press release. “With states, businesses and events beginning to require COVID-19 vaccinations for various activities, we’re making it convenient and easy to verify vaccination status so members of our communities can get back to doing the things they love to do together.”
