The EU is discussing the introduction of “vaccination passports”

On January 21, a summit of the EU countries will take place, at which the issue of introducing a “vaccination passport” will be discussed.

Currently, the topic of “vaccination passports”, which will be needed to enter the EU, is actively discussed in the European press. Public sentiments are polarized: part of society supports the idea, while the second believes that such measures restrict human freedoms.

At the same time, the President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen supports the idea of ​​issuing vaccination certificates in the countries of the European Union and considers it a “medical requirement”.

“We must have a medical requirement to prove that people are vaccinated,” she says.

At the same time, in a press release, the World Health Organization notes that the effect of vaccines on reducing the transmission of the virus is not yet fully known, and their availability is currently too limited. The organization recommends that countries not require proof of vaccination from arriving travelers.
