A SWEDISH company is creating a microchip that could be presented as a way to confirm one has the Covid-19 vaccine.
The microchip technology startup called Epicenter is creating a microchip that will be implanted under a person’s skin and will rely on existing “near-field communication” (NFC) to send data regarding one’s vaccination status.
According to a South China Morning Post tweet, the chip is implanted into your arm and can verify your vaccination status when placed next to an NFC.
“Imagine showing your COVID-19 passport with just a flash of your arm,” the video starts while showing a person holding out their arm and scanning it with a mobile phone.
