Implanted microchip could be used to verify COVID-19 vax status (

Microchip technology invented by Swedish startup company Epicenter is now being presented as a possible way to carry around a COVID-19 vaccine passport under a person’s skin, according to a viral video. “Imagine showing your COVID-19 passport with just a flash of your arm,” the video says at its beginning, showing a person holding out their arm and scanning it with a mobile phone.

The video explains the microchip uses pre-existing technology the startup company was already developing to employ near-field communication and send data to any compatible device. Smartphones are listed as an example of a possible data receiver.

“Implants are a very versatile technology that can be used for many different things,” says Epicenter’s Chief Disruption Officer Hannes Sjöblad in the video. “Right now it is very convenient to have a COVID passport always accessible on your implant.”

So, it took a bit more time for proof to manifest. All that says is patience is a virtue
