Coronavirus Vaccines Certified with VeChain’s Blockchain Tech in Cyprus

The Mediterranean Hospital of Cyprus has vaccinated 100 doctors and nurses against COVID-19, using a blockchain-based mobile app to certify the immunizations.

According to a Tuesday announcement, the hospital said the certifications were made via the E-HCert app backed by the VeChainThor blockchain. The first vaccine was administered on Jan. 4. 

As reported by Coindesk, the hospital described the move as a “great step for the return to normalcy” and another move towards the digital transformation of the healthcare industry via VeChainThor blockchain. 

The Mediterranean Hospital stated that E-HCert was first used in June 2020 for certifying COVID-19 tests results for more than 8,000 people arriving in Cyprus.

Ecosystem manager at VeChain in Limassol, Dimitris Neocleous tweeted:

“With every country trying to create its own app, the use of VeChainThor (via the E-HCert App) as a single and immutable source of truth brings value, versatility and convenience for the return to normalcy.”

The app was developed by VeChain and I-Dante specifically for the hospital last May.

According to the Cyprus Mail, the technology is now expected to be used by the Aretaeio Hospital in Nicosia.
