NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — New Yorkers can now use a digital certification to prove they’ve been vaccinated against COVID-19.

The state has launched the Excelsior Pass.

The pass can be printed out or pulled up on a smartphone. It uses a secure QR code to provide businesses and venues with the user’s proof of vaccination or negative test status.


The pass can be used at major stadiums, theaters and arenas, as well as wedding receptions and event venues.
