Singapore company adopts blockchain to combat fake COVID-19 vaccines

3 min reading

The SAP blockchain is used by Zuellig Pharma's eZTracker service to monitor and validate COVID-19 vaccinations.

Zuellig Pharma, a Singaporean healthcare services firm, is tracking COVID-19 vaccinations through a blockchain-based network to avoid clinicians from executing expired vaccinations.

According to Zuellig Pharma, its new "eZTracker" administration system can assist in avoiding the use of poorly stored or fake vaccines by letting clients rapidly verify the origin and legitimacy of their vaccines through a mobile app.

“Accidents involving expired or improperly stored vaccines can be avoided,” stated Daniel Laverick, vice president and head of Zuellig Pharma's digital and data solutions.

To enhance supply chain clarity, eZTracker utilizes the SAP blockchain to collect, monitor, and track various data points. How it works is described on the eZTracker website:

“Simply scan the QR code on the packaging to instantly verify if your product comes from an authorized distributor.”

“Patients can scan the 2D data matrix on the product packaging to verify key product information like expiry date, temperature, and provenance through its app powered by blockchain,” said Laverick.

The SAP Blockchain operates as a Blockchain-as-a-Service (BaaS) platform, enabling clients to create unique blockchain extensions for their current applications. SAP states that one of its systems impacts 77% of global transaction income.

Zuellig collaborated with MSD to implement eQTrakcer in Hong Kong in 2020, where it was utilized to track vaccines for the Human PapillomaVirus, known as Gardasil.

"As the vaccines move through various handover points in the supply chain, the products' data points are loaded into eZTracker's secure blockchain ledger, and this ensures it can't be tampered with,” Laverick noted at the moment.

“Users such as healthcare professionals and patients are able to verify the authenticity of the vaccine by scanning a unique data matrix code on the product pack."

Zuellig is one of Asia's leading healthcare service provider companies, established 100 years ago. Zuellig also has a product called eZVax, which gives end-to-end vaccination management to governments, regional health authorities, and the private sector.

According to research by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, Southeast Asia is a hotspot of counterfeit medications, with about $520 million and $2.6 billion spent on them every year.
