The QR code confirms you are a participant in the study, with an image of your card and a tick, followed by a request that you not be discriminated against because of your vaccine status, followed by flags representing the countries of our participants and finally, extracts from a selection of Human Rights codes.
Before the QR code can be displayed, the viewer is asked to agree the following:
Then your QR page will show only the items from your record that you have chosen to display.
If you lose any of your cards, you can disable the QR code so it cannot be scanned by anyone who finds it:
- Go to your cards
- Choose CANCEL for the card you have lost.
The option to Cancel will only be available for cards that have been printed and posted. Before this, you have the option to REMOVE a card, which will permanently delete it from the system.
- To reinstate your QR code, you can simply un cancel it.

Your card order summary (below the participant cards on the Dashboard) will show all cards ordered.
The status will change to show when the cards have been printed and dispatched.
We aim to print and dispatch your cards within 24 hours of you creating them (or 48 over the weekend).
Sometimes it is difficult to source print ribbons and cards, which can slow things down.
Once they have been dispatched, we have no control over the post. Postal services vary, country to country. A useful resource is the Royal Mail https://www.royalmail.com/sending/international/international-standard
We are currently finding that UK / Europe can take up to 3 weeks and other areas up to 6 weeks, so please do not ask us to resend cards until those time periods are up. You can see when your card was dispatched on your Dashboard, below your profile cards.
If you have not received your card within the above time period for your region please contact SUPPORT to let us know and we will print replacement cards.
Do remember that you can use your digital IDs as saved photos or files while your plastic cards are on their way. The QR code will confirm that you are a registered participant of the Control Group.
Because of the postage difficulties in South Africa, we print the cards in the country. A higher delivery cost is charged because we have to use couriers, and a telephone number is required for this service.
Only subscribing Associates can order durable, printed cards.
