If as it appears they plan on putting together a central database of everyone who got the *******, we're in for some truly difficult times ahead.

This already exists. I'm not sure if there was a manual process before, but healthcare providers were mandated to start sending their immunization records to the state CDCs electronically around 2011 as part of ARRA (though I believe planning first began under GW Bush's eHealth initiative). It's just a matter of adding the ***** products to the dictionary once a code is defined.*******s/programs/ii....

The ability to query the registry for a person's immunization history is also there. It's generally done through a webservice, so if it's decided that this information is fair game for private companies then all the CDCs have to do is add a *****-specific message type that returns a simple Y or N response and start issuing credentials to the chosen ones (or be lazy and just give them access to your full immunization record and let the client side deal with parsing it). Not quite as easy as flipping a switch, but I could see widespread implementation inside of a year. Faster if states start mandating this as part of lockdown protocols (remember how fast they organized the distancing measures in supermarket chains?).

The Krogers and Walmarts will probably just look at your paper card and wave you through, though. eVerification will be for bigger things like travel and school registration. At least until there's a mandatory phone app to replace the cards. Or I guess they could print a QR code of the query arguments on the back of the cards for the gatekeeper to scan.
