Vaccine Passport – level 3

01-04-2021 07:00

The discussion of COVID-19 vaccine passports has risen as more of the world gets vaccinated. Vaccine passports are certificates or digital cards testifying to the apparent low-risk status to their holders.

Greece is the most noticeable country in an effort to revive travel with the help of so-called vaccine passports that are gaining traction in tourist-reliant economies from the Caribbean to Thailand. Businesses that have suffered a yearlong battering from the pandemic are also coming as a route to salvation. Airlines have supported a number of tech solutions to verify passengers´ Covid vaccination or test results.

However, none of the available shots is 100% effective which means that travelers with vaccine passports could possibly continue to spread the virus in crowded resorts. Questions are also surrounding the fairness of vaccine passports, which would favor richer nations over poorer ones where vaccination has only just begun. Also, the passports would open up travel to the elderly and middle-aged who have been prioritized for vaccination.

Difficult words: testify (to give evidence), traction (the extent to which something new becomes popular), salvation (the state of being saved or protected from danger, loss, or harm).
