    The logistics of the COVID vaccine QR code

    OK, it appears that I can get a Sputnik Light vaccination and get the QR code to do normal stuff. This website lists places that foreigners can get the vaccine in St. Pete, and some of the clinics have websites in English, so this looks good.

    OK, so let's say I get this vaccine, and I'm given the QR code. Can I only have it on 1 device? I have a 2 phones with Russian SIMM cards, one of which is hopelessly quaint, and the other is a Samsung GT-S5611; could that phone support a QR code? What about on a Windows 8 tablet, etc.?

    Why are you using a 3G phone?

    Do a screenshot of your QR code, then send the picture to your other phones.

    I came down with COVID and was tested negative by a Russian hospital. The info went to my mos.ru site where my QR code is kept. Mos.ru updated my QR code which now says "переболел" on it meaning I had COVID-19 and recovered. I didn't do a thing. Convenient, efficient for once. The system is improving...keeping up with me. Ominous though.

    if the phone does not support it, you just can print it out and carry it on you. OR take a photo? if your phone has a camera? I have both. i took a photo on my old LG -Grandfather -phone. and printed out the QR from the site i got it..though that was last spring(?) i dont even remember the time anymore.. never had to use it though...
    There is no greater treasure then pleasure....
