How to upload your vaccination card in Samsung Pay

Although Samsung removed the ability to use Samsung Pay with MST terminals, it's still arguably the best mobile payment service for Android. Not only is it a home for your credit and debit cards, but you can also store things like rewards cards right from some of the best Samsung phones. More recently, Samsung partnered with CommonHealth so that you can digitally store your vaccination card in Samsung Pay. Here's how you can get started.

How to upload vaccination card in Samsung Pay

  1. Open the Play Store app on your Samsung phone.
  2. Download CommonHealth from the Play Store.
  3. Open the CommonHealth app after it's finished downloading.
  4. Follow the on-screen steps to add your vaccination record to CommonHealth.

  5. Once your vaccination card has been added, click the Add to Samsung Pay link.
  6. Open Samsung Pay, and click COVID-19 Vaccine Pass.

After your Vaccine Pass is uploaded into Samsung Pay, it's easily accessible right from the home screen. All you need to do from that point is click the "COVID-19 Vaccine pass" button and tap on the QR code symbol. Once it's added, you can also access it by swiping up from the bottom on your Home Screen to activate Samsung Pay. Then, select the card in the carousel and tap Use card to present it.

What is a SMART Health Card?

If you go through the setup process in CommonHealth, you'll see an option to add a SMART Health Card. It's essentially a paper or digital version of your information, ranging from vaccination to test results. Sometimes your health care professional provides you with it, but you can also request one.

In some cases, however, you won't be provided with a SMART Health Card, and they won't offer it near the location where you received your vaccination. In that event, you will need to go through your primary care doctor to acquire this Health Card.

Why can't you upload a vaccination card in Samsung Pay?

Although CommonHealth is already working with several healthcare providers, state, and federal agencies, not every option was added just yet. Unfortunately, this means that you might go through the process of adding your information, but won't be able to.

One example was for those who have a vaccination card from a local pharmacy, but never received a SMART health card. In this case, you can try and go through your primary care physician to acquire the health card. But CommonHealth states that it is regularly working with healthcare professionals to add more sources.

Link your records with Samsung Pay

To store your vaccine card in Samsung Pay, you'll first need to use the CommonHealth app. If you don't have a SMART Health Card, you can also sign in to your online account with your care provider.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
