The US Presidential Administration and private companies have begun to jointly develop electronic vaccination passports for COVID-19. It is assumed that the passports will be free, and access to them will be provided by a smartphone app. Those who do not have a smartphone will be able to print the document on paper.
This is reported by The Washington Post.
Vaccination passports are being introduced for the sake of restoring вЂњnormal life,вЂќ the White House says. According to the plan, the vaccinated will have access to travel, attending concerts, sports, and other mass events, etc.
The White House decided to deal with Covid passports after an increase in the number of companies that insist on receiving evidence of vaccinations from citizens.
Now the authorities are working to make the system of vaccination certificates as secure as possible from hacking and forgery, the newspaper writes.
Earlier, New York introduced an electronic vaccination passport вЂ” a digital certificate that will be used to officially confirm that a person has been vaccinated against coronavirus. It will allow Americans vaccinated against COVID-19 to participate in mass events and move around the country.
And in the European Union, from June 15, a single certificate of vaccination against coronavirus will be introduced for all citizens of the eurozone.
