Let’s find out how other countries are reacting to this new tool on the block. The US government has confirmed, both residents and visitors are not required to show any vaccination proof. While the US government has no plan of a centralised database on the matter, why don’t we start with the country that is considering passing vaccine passports? We are talking about the United Kingdom. The government is thinking of modifying their existing NHS app to accommodate Covid-19 related information. And if you are in the United Kingdom, you will be happy to know that once you get the digital vaccine passport, you will also be able to finally attend your local football derby match or attend your favourite band’s concert too! If you are reading this from the Nordic lands of Iceland, make sure to get your vaccine certificate after getting both of your doses. This will keep your dream of travelling around the globe, even in the post-pandemic world!
Now that we have cleared the USA and UK’s stands on the vaccine passport, let’s talk about the European Union. The Digital Green Card may be used as the vaccine passport and will provide individual Covid status.
The best thing to do now is to get both doses of the vaccine and maintain all the social distancing protocol whenever possible. As far as the vaccine passport is concerned, wait for the guidelines of the country you are in, or you are travelling to. If the concerned country requires the document, you can opt for one. Many of us are waiting to travel and we hope we will soon. Meanwhile, let’s keep ourselves and keep those around us safe.
