Venture: VaxiGlobal is a vaccination verification service where clinicians who administer vaccines for travel or immigration purposes are verified, and in partnership with Simprints, contactless biometrics are used for verified delivery of vaccines. In addition to the WHO immunization card, digital vaccination certificates are created and embedded in biometric data and QR codes scanned at border controls. The system can also be used by international universities and other institutions which require proof of vaccination from their international students
