EU approves use of vaccine certificates






The European Parliament approved the launch of a Covid-19 digital passport scheme in a vote, bringing free movement and leisure travel a step closer in time for summer.


The EU Covid-19 certificate will show prod of a vaccination, a recent negative test result or show that the user has recovered from the virus.


In response to fears of discriminating against non-vaccinated travellers, MEPs called for 'universal, accessible, timely and free of charge testing.'


The vaccine passport scheme will be in use for a period of 12 months and is adopted only for travel purposes.


European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen called it a 'key step forward towards free and safe travel this summer.'


The EU is working with the World Health Organization to ensure the vaccine certificate can be used beyond Europe.


However there have been 'no contacts' with British officials to make it available to UK citizens yet.
