DULLES, Va. - Virginia residents can now show proof of their COVID-19 vaccination by using a QR code.
The Virginia Department of Health announced earlier this week that - instead of a paper card or app – residents can use a digital or printed barcode for vaccine confirmation when needed.
"QR codes will help improve the consistency and security of vaccination information while protecting individual privacy," said a statement released by VDH officials.
Anyone vaccinate in Virginia can go online to virginia.gov to get their vaccination record with QR code and then save it to their phone.
Beginning today, the COVID-19 vaccination site at Dulles Town Center will reopen by appointment only. The Virginia Department of Health says they are reopening the facility in preparation of vaccine booster doses and for possible vaccination of children ages 5-12.
