ICT has added a feature in beta that allows Protege WX users in New Zealand to link a user’s My Vaccine Pass status and expiry to a credential, enabling safe access for valid pass holders.

According to ICT, many businesses are required to ensure staff are vaccinated, having this information automatically linked to their access control system saves the time and effort of manually checking and updating the status of each employee.

Operationally, users scan the New Zealand Government issued My Vaccine Pass QR code into the Protege WX web interface using the camera on a tablet or a connected webcam. Protege WX system will validate the pass and add the expiry date as a credential for the user.

Every time the user presents their credential at a door, Protege WX checks the vaccine information in the background and grants access if valid. When a cardholder’s My Vaccine Pass expires, their access can be removed.

ICT said this offers a simple approach for businesses to ensure that they remain compliant with vaccine mandates and health and safety precautions to keep their staff safe.
