BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., April 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Today, Vaxtrac Coalition founding members Allied Identity and SICPA announced additional members. The Coalition is working to strengthen the capacity of communities around the world to safely and securely respond to COVID-19 and future infectious disease outbreaks.
In 2020, the Coalition introduced Vaxtrac in response to the fraud with the vaccination ‘Yellow Card’ used for international travel. Vaxtrac addresses the unprecedented challenges created by COVID-19 and outdated vaccination management systems. Vaxtrac enables a real-time, holistic view of population health by providing strong data validation, giving individuals control of their own records, and removing fraud from the system. Individual credentials are protected by SICPA’s proven CERTUS® myHealth Pass technology, which creates a blockchain-protected digital seal in a unique QR code that is easily verified, tamper-proof, and tied to a unique identity.
Unlike other solutions that rely on a centralized database, Vaxtrac provides a decentralized approach, similar to drivers licenses, that works independently or extends current Immunization Information Systems run by state/territorial/provincial governments. It provides secure anonymous data for public policy that is not seen or handled by the large tech oligarchies and enables individuals to carry private credentials on a smartphone, on paper or in a plastic card to share at their discretion.
The Vaxtrac Coalition is pleased to welcome the following new members who will strengthen the capacity of communities to respond to public health priorities:
- American Banknote Corporation (ABCorp), a US-based company supporting governments and world-class organizations globally with secure credentials and payments solutions for over two centuries;

“Vaxtrac is a critical tool in the complex effort to securely and reliably record individual vaccination status and offer useful data to improve population health. It is especially vital as government, business, and public health officials globally look for ways to safely manage international travel and business operations that are still at risk,” said Jeff Hattara Coalition founder and CEO of Allied Identity “Together, Vaxtrac Coalition members leverage their unique expertise and solutions to ensure that strong, secure vaccination management and credentialing solutions reach the markets who need them to help recover from COVID-19 and respond to future infectious disease outbreaks.”
