What is the vaccination passport? It is a digital or printed document that shows that a person is vaccinated against covid-19, which, it could help to enter different places.
Your appearance and the need to have one depend on where you live, but more and more private establishments, workplaces and governments that require proof of vaccination in public spaces.
In Europe and US cities such as California and New York they created official digital credentials that allow to verify the vaccination record against covid-19 and turn it into a scannable QR code that can be carried on the cell phone.
Most places with this requirement also accept simpler options, such as a paper card from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that lists the dates you received your injections. In the country, it is usually enough to show a photo of that card on the phone.
Denmark, Greece, France, Italy, some Canadian provinces and the American cities of New Orleans, New York and San Francisco are among the places that ask for these tests to access the interior of restaurants or theaters, for example. The application varies and many sites also accept a negative test for the recent coronavirus, a proof of partial vaccination or of having passed the covid-19.
Even without an official mandate, more and more businesses in countries where vaccines are easily accessible are beginning to require these tests from their customers. as long as the government has not prevented it.
At first, authorities around the world were reluctant to impose vaccination, but some now hope to do so convince more people to get immunized. Businesses that demand it say they try to make their customers and employees feel safe.
In France and elsewhere, critics call this mandate invasive and restrictive with freedom of movement. Privacy advocates have raised concerns about instilling people in the habit of scanning their cell phone wherever they go, and are generally in favor of options that cannot be traced, cas a paper document or a digital copy on the phone that can be shown at the door of the establishment.
