Excelsior Pass

Excelsior Pass gives NYS residents and workers a convenient method to share and control access to their COVID vaccination and testing records.

Users can show their “Pass” to businesses (or other authorized verifiers) and the verifier can instantly determine that the pass is valid.

Verifiers only have the ability to validate a holder’s pass and are not able to see any more information than is necessary to verify validity. This protects the privacy of the user and enables security of the underlying vaccination and test data.
