The Walmart digital vaccine record is available to the people above 18 years who have received their vaccine at a Walmart or Sam's Club pharmacy or a Walmart-run vaccine event. Customers can log into their Walmart/Sam's Club account and request the vaccine record as a QR code in a simple procedure. The Walmart record is presently available in the market and Sam's Club is expected to be available from next week.

Commenting on the developments, Cheryl Pegus, EVP, Walmart Health & Wellness, said, "We are committed to giving people convenient, secure access to their health data, starting with COVID-19 vaccine immunization records. Our tool gives individuals a safe method to privately keep track of this information on their smartphone or computer, while also encouraging them to take ownership of their health data by determining exactly where, when, or if they share their documentation."
