Costa: Hope EU starts using vaccine passports by summer

Portugal's Prime Minister Antonio Costa (pictured) expressed hope on Friday the European Union will implement the use of vaccine passports by summer this year.

"We are defendants of a measure on European scale, and it is with this objective that we work as presidents with the European Commission. The hope we all have is that by the summer it will be possible for this document to exist," Costa stated.

The potential use of the digital document would allow European governments to check whether people entering their country have been inoculated against COVID-19.
