Gallagher's My Vaccine Pass Enhancement.

Gallagher is helping customers manage changing COVID-19 requirements in New Zealand with the launch of its My Vaccine Pass enhancement, which enables customers to link a user’s My Vaccine Pass status and expiry to their access credential with helpful workflow notifications to users and their managers.

“Since its release in November, the My Vaccine Pass has become an integral part of daily life, just like carrying a driver’s licence, scanning in at the supermarket, and wearing a mask,” said Brad Small, Gallagher’s Regional Sales Manager for New Zealand and The Pacific Islands.

“We’ve had more than 50 prominent businesses enquire about a My Vaccine Pass enhancement with our Command Centre Mobile in recent months.

“With many businesses now mandating that all employees and/or visitors are vaccinated before allowing entry on site, customers asked us for an easy way to streamline vaccination status with their access control system,” Small said.

While many customers were already using Gallagher’s Competencies to ensure only fully vaccinated people are granted access to a site, Gallagher explored other solutions to authenticate this process and help customers streamline vaccine pass management.

Operationally, customers scan the New Zealand Government issued My Vaccine Pass QR code into the Gallagher Command Centre Mobile App using the camera on the mobile device. Gallagher’s Command Centre software will validate the pass and add the expiry date as a competency for that user’s profile. Access will be granted until the My Vaccine Pass expires, at which point access to configured areas can be removed.

Leading up to the potential removal of the user’s access, Gallagher can send SMS and email notifications to the individual and their manager to remind the user to get their booster vaccine before it impacts their ability to work.

“Through being agile in response to the needs of our customers, we’ve come up with a straightforward way that businesses can ensure they remain compliant with vaccine mandates and health and safety precautions to keep their staff and site safe,” Small said.
