Bahrain among first countries to launch digital ‘Vaccine Passport’


Bahrain has launched a digital Covid-19 “vaccine passport”, becoming one of the first nations in the world to do so.




The country’s BeAware app enables individuals to show their immunity status two weeks after receiving both doses of the jab when antibodies have started developing.

The ‘Covid-19 Vaccinated’ shield is accompanied by an official certificate detailing the users’ name, date of birth, nationality and which vaccine they received.

Authorities can verify the validity of the certificate by scanning a QR code linking to the national vaccine register.

To access the digital certificate, users must have received two doses of the vaccine, with 21 days between each. They then must wait for two weeks after the second dose for antibodies to start developing.

Other countries developing similar programmes include Denmark and Sweden, with both nations planning to launch the service in the coming weeks.
