EU needs to revisit idea of vaccination certificates - Roth

Germany's Minister of State for Europe Michael Roth stated on Tuesday that the European Union needs to reassess the idea of granting people who were vaccinated against COVID-19 more freedom for traveling and revisit the idea of vaccination certificates.

Roth added that there is now a reason to believe that people who received a COVID jab pose less of a risk to others in terms of virus transmission.

During an EU ministerial meeting that took place in January, European Commission Vice-President Maros Sefcovic hinted at the possibility of introducing "electronic vaccination certificates," while Roth himself noted at that time that it is vital to determine if vaccinated people could still transmit the illness to others.
