Health care professionals performed over 218 million COVID-19 tests in the U.S. as of December 2020.1

The federal government plans to deliver at least 300 million vaccine doses shortly. Most applicable vaccines require 2 doses a couple weeks apart.2 This adds to the complexity of tracking compliance for public health.

A sizable portion of the population is skeptical about vaccine efficacy and safety, and there are many important issues for public health experts to work through.3

We’re all eager to return to normal life: sports, concerts, travel, and even the office. Verifying COVID-19 testing and vaccination status for individuals is critical to ensuring public safety.

Having quick and easy access to updated, verified COVID-19 testing and vaccination status in the hands of every American can help the economy get back on track.

How it works

An individual gets tested or vaccinated for COVID-19.

Test results and vaccination records are shared with the state’s Department of Health Services or local health departments.

Merit combines test results, vaccination records, employment locations, and current regulations into a verified credential for individuals, including 
a compliance expiration date.

Individuals can track their compliance through the free Merit app or on the web.

Organizations and event venues can easily verify credentials to ensure an individual’s COVID-19 compliance, while states have actionable insights for greater oversight.
