As travel returns, vaccination passports will soon be required

By Aaron Humes: The arrival of COVID-19 vaccines allows people to dream of getting out into the world again, domestically and internationally. But the disease hasn’t gone away, and that means proof of vaccination will be needed.

Step forward, CBS travel editor Peter Greenberg discussed according to Houston affiliate KHOU-TV, vaccination passports, which will be the new standard in travel.

“It will be required,” he said. “The real question is what technology will be available to create a universally acceptable and universally readable document that can’t be forged.”

There are early versions in development worldwide among public and private sector, including in Denmark which is developing a digital passport for citizens that will contain all your current medical information that can be updatable on that digital card.”

While digital versions are the ultimate goal, Greenberg says early models will likely be physical, like those created by award-winning scientist and inventor Isaac Daniel.

Daniel has developed two versions: basic and international. The international version has e-vaccine technology that serves as an electronic version of your health records. He suggests the basic version be used for domestic travel and daily interactions. Similar to the white card vaccine recipients are given after their first dose, both versions house relevant information like which vaccine was administered, where it was administered and when.  

Greenberg tells WUSA-TV, CBS affiliate in Washington, D.C., that vaccine verification for travel could be mandatory on cruise lines and some airlines as soon as July, being asked for at point of departure and entry including the airline ticket counter, passport control and Customs and Border Protection.

Each country, he added, should be working on developing something that works for their residents until a standard vaccination passport is authorized.
