Towards the end of last year, tech start-up Dsruptive Subdermals announced a microchip installed under the skin that can be scanned to reveal Covid vaccination status.
The technology was criticized, with many calling it “invasive.”
In an interview with Express, the company’s managing director doubled down on the technology and told critics the technology was here to stay.
The technology is a pre-programmed and scannable implant about the size of a grain of rice. It stores the vaccination information, displaying a person’s Covid-19 vaccine passport when scanned.
