6 month expire?

I was happy to get and use this app. Helpful to get into a movie / restaurant/ theater.

However, it now implies boosters are REQUIRED every 6 months. This is not my understanding or my doctors recommendation. I can’t over-ride the expiration date using “pass plus” because of the poor design and poor directions.

So, without getting 2nd booster in the 5th month after last booster I show expired! THIS IS DANGEROUS - PLEASE RESPOND with a fix to this glitch? Thank you!

Easy to use app!

Just downloaded app and added my wife’s and my pass to both our phones. Each pass shows expiration dates in mid-Sept 2021 and currently it’s mid-April and that’s perfectly fine with me. Expiration dates make perfect sense to me as experts learn more about the the virus, vaccine effectiveness period and if a booster shot update if needed. I don’t expect a “Lifetime Pass” like other app raters apparently do.

Booster shot

It’s great to have proof of vaccination on your phone so you don’t have to carry the card with you, however, it doesn’t allow you to add your Covid booster shot. If a yearly booster is the way of the future this should be corrected on the app, or it becomes worthless.
