COVID-19 Vaccination Delivery and Tracking: Challenges and Solutions

In its recent Communication “A united front to beat COVID-19”, the European Commission stressed the importance of a “common EU approach to trusted, reliable and verifiable certificates” of vaccination. Several initiatives toward the creation of a Vaccination Credential or Passport have been launched in this sense. 

The INATBA Healthcare Working Group wants to contribute to this effort by facilitating the creation of a community of interest and action, starting with a roundtable to discuss key challenges in the vaccination pipeline and the most mature blockchain-based solutions to be offered to healthcare institutions trusted with COVID-19 vaccinations at national and international levels. The objective of this event is to build a community of interests and launch a call to action aimed at addressing the challenges and identifying the solutions for COVID-19 vaccination delivery and tracking.
