Parinda started by explaining what a vaccine passport or certificate is, and how it helps health organisations assess the vaccination status of an individual.
She then went to clarify that although vaccine passports nay be ready, they can only be used when the country reopens.
The idea is to use a similar certificate to the yellow vaccine but more robust, as paper and digital versions will be made available.
Parinda then clarifies who is eligible to apply for this passport and mechanisms to apply and obtain this passport.
