AACN Partners with CastleBranch to Provide Member Schools Real Vaccination ID

Published February 10, 2021

To help support academic nursing during the pandemic, CastleBranch and AACN have partnered to offer AACN member schools a 25 percent discount on Real Vaccination ID cards– one of the first solutions available to help individuals prove their COVID-19 vaccination status. 

Real Vaccination ID cards feature a photo of the individual along with their name, address, date of birth, physical identifiers, and a unique QR code which, when scanned, electronically verifies the individual’s vaccination status. Sophisticated anti-counterfeit technology used on the card, such as ultraviolet ink, microtext, holographic film, and silver foil, prevent fraud and forgery, while lamination prevents damage.

“CastleBranch’s Real Vaccination ID will be your passport to the world,” said Brett Martin, CEO of CastleBranch. “And with these passports, individuals will retain complete control and ownership over their own personal information, nothing about me without me.” Martin added, “We believe in empowering people to control and own their self-sovereign digital identities and to helping them progress along to the next phase of their life’s journey, wherever that may lead them. It’s what we do. It’s who we are. And it’s how we will continue to stand with you as we have before, during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.”
