Cuomo confirms launch of NY vaccination-proof pass

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo confirmed on Friday the Empire State was launching Excelsior Pass, the mobile phone platform with a quick response (QR) code that shows one either tested negative for COVID-19 or received a vaccine against it.

"It's a first of its kind tool to help NY fight COVID while reopening our economy safely," Cuomo added. New York thus became the first United States' federal state to introduce such a certificate.

The platform was created in partnership with International Business Machines Corporation (IBM).
