Governments may create "vaccine passports" to open up society. The passport will show if you have had the COVID-19 vaccine. Businesses such as restaurants might ask people to show their passport. Supporters of the passports say they would make overseas travel easier. The World Health Organization is looking at a possible international passport. Countries will have to agree on what kind is necessary.

Opponents of vaccine passports say they are unfair. They say the passports will create inequality. Many people do not want the vaccine. They say it goes against their religion, or it is unsafe. Israel's health minister said those who do not get the jab will be "left behind" in life. Also, not everyone in the world can get the vaccine. A human rights professor said: "For many low-income countries, most people won't be vaccinated for many years."
