Vaccination passports: the US has abandoned them, and Ukraine follows the EU example

The US is reluctant to introduce any form of coronavirus vaccination passport, but private companies may be considering this issue.

This was stated by the press secretary of the White House Jen Psaki, reports AFP. According to her, the government will not support a system that requires Americans to have credentials.

Quote"There will be no federal vaccination database, no federal mandate for everyone to have common vaccination credentials," she said, adding that American privacy and rights must be protected and these systems must not be used against people unfairly.

Vaccination passports in Ukraine

At the same time, Ukraine is considering the possibility of introducing a standardized certificate of vaccination against COVID-19, like "digital green certificates" in the European Union.

As Deputy Minister of Health Yaroslav Kucher wrote on his Facebook page, the functions of the eHealth system (the state electronic health care system) potentially also allow issuing such certificates, but so far according to Ukrainian, not international standards.

Quote"The Ministry of Health will see what the final decision is and will immediately begin implementation in Ukraine," he wrote.

Context. At the end of March, the European Union presented a European health certificate that will come into force from June 15, 2021.
