Officials in the United Kingdom are working with the airline industry to come up with a digital COVID passport that would be recognized internationally and help airlines identify vaccinated people easily. If a common standard for certification isn’t put in place there is a fear that people would have to get re-vaccinated after traveling. In addition, such a system would presumably require a global database accessible by thousands of interested parties, raising questions on privacy.
