    Good luck trying to get the world to pull information in a central system that verifies if youve been vaccinated. Cute you think it would happen Cyko.
    The card is issued by CDC and thus I don't believe it's constrained to one city or state. I do believe it's US only for sure.

      I got the card. We got enough trouble trying to get cities in states talkin to each other, nevermind state to state even if it is CDC keeping track. Dont know how it would work internationally if ever. Maybe something on a drivers license like the new Drivers licenses that are going to be required for travel.

        This is my main concern as well since one big (only?) reason I got the vaccine is so I can travel more freely internationally.
        I am also wondering about the kids; my wife and I are fully vaccinated with stamped cards to prove it, but our kids are 13 and 8 and there isn't even a vaccine approved yet for their age group. What do we do? Frequent covid tests as we hop from one place to another?
        Hope something is figured out by July when we plan on going to Greece.

          The good news is the kids will 99.x% be fine if they get it. Unless they have other conditions. Enjoy that trip. I've always wanted to go there myself.

                  Yea, I figured I would never get in that way as well, Just happened to click at the right time this weekend as they opened a new site starting today and I somehow was quick enough to get one through. Its the samething as trying to get a PS5. Thousands trying to get it and 10 available. Will be on my way in a few hours for my first dose.

                    This is precisely why I am waiting a few more months. Let the hoards go and get it first. Also I am considered "lower risk" since I've already had covid and likely have some immunity. Even against the other variants, they are starting to learn that catching any covid and recovering is offering some protection from developing severe covid.

                    I'll still get my vaccine, but I'm not going to play the same game people are playing for vid cards right now to try and get a vaccine.

                      Heh, that's exactly what it feels like. Well, it only took 4 months to score a PS5, so hopefully by Juneish I'll be able to get mine.

                        Might want to step up on getting that pre-built you were talking about if you want it anytime soon. Some pre-built suppliers are starting to ship "gaming pc's" without the video cards because they are beginning to have trouble getting them too.

                        I posted a new topic in the general hardware section for details.

                                Yes sir! That was a quick process, dose 1 down, Pfizer, so 3 weeks from today for dose 2. Off to the Dentist. That will be worse as I’m going to be slobbering for 3 hours after.

                                  Depending on your area, getting an appointment is not impossible. I finally was eligible for the vaccine 2 weeks ago and started looking. After just 4 tries I was starting to think it was going to be impossible. But, on my fifth try I hit when new appointments were opening up and there were tons. Got my appointment and my first Pfizer shot. It looked like it's just a matter of timing. In my area a lot of appointments seem to open up in the evening. It seems like every couple of days, blocks of appointments for multiple days are released. All I had to do was check at around 6:30pm on the right day and I had my pick of locations and appointments.

                                    That's what politicians want but in order to get this to work are new laws. Vaccination records are basically the same as medical journals which are protected by the laws of patient confidentiality.

                                    This is means that new laws must be passed in all countries that want introduce such system. Not sure of this is the case that each state in US must accept this, this is certainly the case in the EU.

                                    Just forget an international system being deployed for vaccination records, especially in the near future.

                                      Yup, good luck trying to get around HIPAA laws. Thats why a central system is going to be tough to make if it ever comes out JUST for the states. A worldwide one is just not possible.

                                        Here in Canukistan I could be waiting months until I can get vaccinated.

                                        Our National Advisory Committee on Immunization has recommended that second doses could be safely delayed up to 4 months which is ridiculous...give all the older folks and immunocompromised people their 2 doses within the suggested time frame by the vaccine makers...the younger and healthier people can wait a bit longer.

                                        Would have been nice if our government had secured a good number of vaccines earlier but our PM was probably more concerned with fluffing his hair and talking selfies

                                          There will never be a world-wide system, however countries can (and some will) require proof of vaccination to let you in.
                                          In the past I had to get proof of vaccination (polio?) before even being allowed on my flight to certain destinations.
                                          But as others have stated, proof can easily be faked :shrugs:

                                                      I don't understand the point of this especially since most of the US should be vaccinated by the end of this year. Once that's done, the amount of vaccines available to the rest of the world that didn't really contribute to the development of the vaccines will have higher availability. The whole "proof of COVID shot to fly" is equivalent to asking for proof of a flu shot imo.

                                                      The time it will take to build an infrastructure that can share this kind of info.. we'll be in 2022. I also don't know if that's something the government should be able to force as accessible information. I'm very on the fence, favoring towards "bad idea".

                                                      The focus should be on distributing as much of the vaccine as possible to every one. The amount of people choosing not to take the vaccine is dwindling; military buddies that are very .. well essentially anti-vaxxers, have decided to get it because of the scientific data.

                                                      I've had the Anthrax series restarted so many times, I can't imagine the COVID vaccine will be what takes me out
