How do I verify my COVID-19 vaccination?

Esri will be using CLEAR Health Pass to verify vaccination and does not have access to any personal information that you submit to CLEAR Health Pass.

There are multiple options to digitally verify your COVID-19 vaccine With CLEAR. Select the one that works best for you:

How do I upload a photo of my CDC vaccination card to complete my Health Pass?

Select your vaccine provider in the menu or by searching ‘other providers’. Log in to your patient portal and follow instructions to securely link your account with CLEAR. 

The CLEAR app is integrated with select healthcare providers and pharmacies.

  • If you are unable to find your provider in search, CLEAR may not be able to link with them at this time.
  • Check that your COVID-19 vaccine appears in your patient portal. If not, we recommend you reach out to your provider directly.

Attendees that do not complete the Health Pass will be required to show vaccination card and photo ID at the Health Pass Help Desk.

No, you must show your Health Pass in the CLEAR app because it is a dynamic screen.
