The Republic of San Marino approved VeChain’s NFT-based vaccination passport

The European country with a population of just over 33,000 announced the approval of the 'Decree-Law No. 109 of 16 June' earlier today, which enables the rollout of a vaccination passport called San Marino Digital Covid Certificate.

The partnership includes collaboration with DNV to provide digital assurance over the project. The vaccination passport will have information about past infections, negative test results, along with a digital vaccination certificate. 

The digital passport is issued upon request from approved facilities by the health authorities of the country. It is recorded on the VeChainThor public blockchain, by linking an enterprise nonfungible token (eNFT) to an individual’s Covid-related medical history. 

The certificate contains two QR codes that will contain a specific person’s Covid-related medical records. The first code is in compliance with European Union requirements and standards and can be verified by approved member states and entities, and the second QR can be scanned by anywhere outside the European Union and directs users to a web-based app where the blockchain-based eNFT certificates can be verified.

The Global Director of Growth and Innovation at DNV, Renato Grottola said, “The use of VeChain’s blockchain technology and, in particular NFTs, makes it possible to increase confidence in the authenticity of the information, reducing the risk of counterfeiting,” 

The public blockchain firm, VeChain has also partnered with Mediterranean Hospital of Cyprus to store vaccination records on its blockchain.
