My Covid Record: site details and reminder to get vaccinated!

The Ministry of Health has the new My Covid Record site is up in beta. The purpose is to provide a portal to obtain vaccine evidence currently for travel, but later for mass events such as concerts. I managed to set up my account in about ten minutes - it helps if you already have a RealMe login.

It is also an opportunity to provide a reminder that getting vaccinated works to reduce the transmission, serious illness, and death from COVID-19. I'm vaccinated and everyone I know has had at least the first jab, if not both. If you haven't or you know anyone - often young people who have only recently been allowed to go an get the jab - who hasn't got around to it yet, do help to spread the word. The more of us that can get it, that do get it, the easier life will be (including for those few who cannot have the jab due to medical reasons).

Insurers interested in how digital health records development is going should definitely take note of this. It is likely to be the same or similar registration process.
