After seeing record COVID-19 Deaths and Hospitalizations, Los Angeles County will use technology to help residents track and prove their immunization records, Bloomberg reports. The public health service has partnered with the startup Healthvana on an application that will store vaccination records in Google or Apple wallets. He will remind residents to get their second shot, while providing them with a vaccination record “to prove to airlines, to prove to schools, to prove to anyone who needs it,” said Healthvana CEO Ramin Bastani . Bloomberg.
Pfizer assigned 82 875 COVID-19 vaccine doses in the region and nearly half have been distributed to emergency workers, health service providers and residents of long-term facilities. However, LA County is one of the largest in the United States with over 10 million people, so once vaccinations increase next year, tracking will become a challenge. On top of that, the deaths in the county are nearly 10,000, hospitals and clinics are therefore already overwhelmed – and we expect much worse in January 2021.
