R.I. announces 401Health Mobile app update, digital vaccine records included

RIDOH (WLNE)

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE)- Governor McKee alongside the R.I. Department of Health have announced the next phase of the Crush COVID R.I. mobile application, 401Health Mobile.

This update will allow Rhode Islanders to access all vaccination records digitally.

Rhode Island now joins other countries, several states, and pharmacies who have been utilizing the secure SMART Health vaccination technology for record standardization.

Connecticut and Massachusetts will be partnering Rhode Island as they begin to implement this program in the coming weeks.

“Rhode Island has administered close to 2 million doses of COVID vaccine and almost 300,000 booster doses, and our neighbors deserve a convenient, safe, and efficient way to access and store their vaccination record,” said Governor McKee. “I have downloaded my vaccination card to my phone and it was very simple. If you haven’t gotten vaccinated yet, it’s not too late. If you haven’t yet, get boosted.”

“We want to make it as easy and convenient as possible for you to securely access your vaccination information,” said Rhode Island Department of Health Director Nicole Alexander-Scott, MD, MPH. “This new app is a great way to verify for others that you have received the critical protection that comes with a COVID-19 vaccine primary series and booster dose.”

The free Rhode Island app is now available through the Apple App store and on the Google Play store in English and Spanish.
