EU Vaccine Certificate Could Open Door to Russian, Chinese Shots

  • The bloc will publish a ‘digital green certificate’ this month
  • A draft proposal aims to ease the right to free movement

The European Union will propose a certificate that could ease travel for those who have taken EU-approved vaccines as well as others, like the Chinese and Russian shots, that have only received emergency national authorizations.

The “EU Covid Card/digital green certificate” will comprise three documents that will specify if the holder has gotten a vaccine and which one; the results of a coronavirus test if taken; and details on whether they have recovered from a Covid-19 infection, according to a person familiar with the European Commission’s draft regulation.
