Governments the world may create "vaccine passports" to help open societies. The passport would be a record the holder having had the COVID-19 vaccine. It could be downloaded a smartphone or it could be added to the microchip identity cards. Businesses such as restaurants and theatres might require people to show their passport before they enter. People may also need one to enter venues to watch sporting events. Supporters the passports say it would also allow people to travel overseas more easily. The World Health Organization is looking a possible international scheme. This would require countries to agree what kind passport is necessary.
Opponents vaccine passports say they are unfair and could create inequality society. Many people do not want the vaccine. Some people say it goes their religion. Other people do not trust the vaccine and say it has not been tested enough and is therefore unsafe. Some people worry about the security their health data. These people may not be able to go to restaurants or get airplanes. Israel's Health Minister Yuli Edelstein said anyone unwilling or unable to get the jab will be "left behind" life. In addition, the vaccine is not available to everyone the world. A human rights professor said: "For many low-income countries, most people won't be vaccinated many years."
