How to Add Your COVID-19 Vaccine Records to Apple Health, Wallet on Your iPhone

However, the easiest way to access the COVID-19 vaccine records is by saving them on your smartphone. Apple, with iOS 15.1 update, brought a new feature to let iPhone users to store and access a digital copy of their COVID-19 vaccination and test certificates in the Health app. With this, users can upload their vaccination status to the Health app and it will create a vaccination card in Apple Wallet.
