WHO is considering the introduction of electronic certificates of vaccination

WHO is discouraging countries from issuing “immune passports” to those who have recovered from COVID-19.





The World Health Organization considers it possible to introduce electronic certificates of vaccination for travel abroad, said Siddhartha Sankar Datta, an expert at the WHO Regional Office for Europe. This was announced on Thursday, December 3, by The Business Standart.

“We are carefully exploring the possibility of using technology to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. This also applies to collaboration with [WHO] member countries in the implementation of electronic certificates of vaccination,” Datta said.

He explained that it is necessary to take into account that it is necessary to use technologies in accordance with the legislative framework of a particular state, as well as to ensure the transparency of the program for the implementation of such a certificate, in particular, in the European region.

“We are working very closely with the European Commission and the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control to understand and find out what new technologies and innovations are already in some countries in the European region,” added Datta.

Vaccination against coronavirus is becoming a reality. So, on December 2, the UK approved the COVID-19 vaccine from Pfizer and the German BioNTech, while other companies Moderna and AstraZeneca provided positive data.

In total, according to the World Health Organization, there are now about 170 projects around the world to develop a vaccine against coronavirus.

We add that Interpol has warned of an increase in crimes related to COVID vaccines.
