The ImmunaBand is a stylish blue silicone bracelet emblazoned with the words "COVID-19 Vaccinated." Each bracelet has a metal tag with an engraved, unique QR code which, when scanned by a smartphone, directs users to their personal password-protected vaccination record. To purchase an ImmunaBand, customers must complete a COVID-19 vaccination that has received FDA Emergency Authorization and upload their vaccination card documenting that status to ImmunaBand's HIPAA-compliant server. The vaccination card storage process is end-to-end encrypted to ensure data privacy and security, the company said in a news release.
“These vaccines are a culmination of some of the best work the scientific community has ever seen. But with its tremendous benefits come challenges—as it stands, quick, easy access to documentation of vaccination status is lacking,” said J. Tashof Bernton, MD, President of ImmunaBand. “After a year defined by divisions, we deserve to feel comfortable and safe in public. ImmunaBand will serve as the passport that returns us back to normal life.”
The creators of ImmunaBand developed the technology to restore trust, bring people back together, and help collectively move toward a post-quarantine world. Immunaband offers a visible solution not just to individuals but to businesses who are eager to safely reopen their doors.
"Innovation and technology play a vital role in getting our economy, and society, back to normal again. Immunaband is a great example of this, by providing companies of all sizes—from small businesses to those in leisure, hospitality, and travel—with a novel and visible way to demonstrate their commitment to a safe environment for their employees and customers," said ImmunaBand Board Member, Daniel Charles.
