When compared to the Android version, the problem was found to be on the Apple device version.
COVID Records Verifier (AB COVID)
According to GlobalNews, the Android version of the AB COVID Records Verifier will scan successfully for consumers who had got the third dose within the previous two weeks. The Apple customers, on the other hand, would get a “X” despite the third shot.
According to Global News, an Alberta Health spokeswoman verified that the current issue only affects the Apple version of the app. Alberta Health anticipates the app to be updated as soon as possible, with the current issue rectified.
Vaccination Records for COVID-19
Albertans can still present their paper and electronic records whenever they visit companies and events that participate in the recognized Restrictions Exemption Program as of now. These can include records collected from Alberta.ca/CovidRecords, MyHealth Records, or even paper records obtained during a vaccination appointment.
On November 15, 2021, the switch to official vaccine records with QR codes as the only valid proof of vaccination takes effect. Alberta Health would also be able to address any technological concerns that develop during the transition time.
Alberta Health COVID-19
The official AB COVID Records Verifier had stealthily appeared on the Google Play and Apple App Stores only a few weeks ago, before the entire Alberta government announced it in a press conference. Out of a total of 8,620 tests taken in Alberta, 652 new cases of COVID-19 were verified.
COVID-19 was linked to 38 new deaths, according to reports. This is despite the fact that they transpired in the prior six days. According to Dr. Deena Hinshaw, they were then reported to Alberta Health within the last 24 hours.
