QR Code Generation for COVID-19 Vaccinations
As you start to go back to work, travel, or attend events such as a concert or sporting event, you might be asked if you’ve been vaccinated for COVID-19 or if you have recent test results. You can share your information quickly, easily, and securely, right from MyChart by:
- Generating barcodes that can be scanned right from your mobile device.
- Downloading a PDF document that includes your vaccination barcodes. (Test result barcodes are not included in the PDF.)
- Exporting your information to another application.
To access the QR code in MyChart:
Menu > COVID-19
You will see a link: QR Codes and Download/Export (see photo examples below)
The barcodes that appear in MyChart are created according to an open industry standard called SMART Health Cards. They contain verified information and only what is relevant to COVID-19, including your legal name, date of birth, COVID-19 vaccination information, and your most recent COVID-19 test result. You decide how much to share and with whom—you can share only your test results, only your vaccination information, or both.
