With over 100 million Americans able to access SMART Health Card digital vaccination certificates, SMART Health Cards have quickly become the de facto standard for digital vaccination records in the United States and are increasingly being adopted globally.

Join us for a global forum featuring key perspectives from government leaders, SMART Health Card issuers, verifiers, and technology companies contributing to the ecosystem.

VCI™ is a voluntary coalition of public and private organizations committed to empowering individuals access to a trustworthy and verifiable copy of their vaccination records in digital or paper form using open, interoperable standards.

The scope of VCI™ is to harmonize the standards and produce the implementation guides needed to support the issuance of verifiable health credentials - signed clinical data bound to an individual identity. VCI™ does this by leading the development and implementation of the open-source SMART Health Card Framework and specifications.

Individuals can then use those verifiable credentials for medical purposes and to demonstrate their health status to safely return to work, school, travel and life.


Participating organizations commit to implementing, testing, and refining the SMART Health Cards Framework within their sphere of influence and will also commit to providing verifiable clinical information, including vaccination records directly to citizens if such records are in their stewardship. They may also be called upon to assist in other ways as necessary to ensure the success of the initiative.

To ensure that convenient access to records crosses the digital divide and does not exacerbate health inequities, those without smartphones should receive paper printed with QR codes containing W3C verifiable credentials.
