The SIU has partnered with WellCheck to bring members a new way of keeping proof of COVID-19 vaccination at the ready, on mobile devices.
By using the WellCheck app, SIU members can upload their vaccine cards using their smartphone, where the information listed will be verified by state medical databases.
Once verified, the information can be stored digitally on the member’s mobile device, as well as uploaded to their online SIU member portal (the latter will happen automatically). Once a member’s vaccine records are verified by the state medical database, their proof of vaccination through the Well- Check app can be used at both foreign ports of entry as well as various events and gatherings which require a verified record.
All members are strongly encouraged to upload their vaccine cards through the WellCheck app, even if they have previously submitted their information. Additionally, when a member receives a COVID-19 booster shot, they are encouraged to upload their updated vaccine card through WellCheck.
Members can also save their verified vaccine information to their Apple Wallet or Google Wallet on their mobile devices, to ensure they have ready access even if they lose internet connectivity. This is an added service being provided to the membership at no cost, and is not mandatory.
