By Aaron Humes: According to Caribbean Lifestyle, Belize’s Ministry of Health and Wellness has created a digital app that, by QR code, verifies the vaccination status of residents.
The new MOHW Health Pass requires persons to enter their Social Security number or health identification along with their date of birth to generate the digital passport.
An official announcement has not been made but it is expected that the program will be launched on Friday of this week, October 15.
While officially vaccination is not compulsory, the Government has added pressure to be vaccinated by making it mandatory to present proof of vaccination to enter Government buildings to conduct business or those of statutory boards. The sole exceptions are for children under 12 and in medical and police emergencies, though the subject can still face testing.
More importantly, countries around the world now require some form of digital proof of vaccination. It’s now routine overseas for unvaccinated individuals to have to jump through more hoops and restrictions than vaccinated travelers do. While the details of these Covid passes vary from place to place, they function essentially the same way: digital health records, stored on your phone, prove that you have been vaccinated. From a practical perspective, these “vaccine passports” or “digital Covid certificates” drastically cut down the time it takes humans to screen documents.
