The WHO believes that governments don't need to introduce Covid-19 vaccination passports. Melita Vujinovic, the WHO representative in Russia said so as quoted by RBC news agency.

"But of course, the countries walk their own line, everybody is trying to allow considerable mobility of population", Vujnovic said.

According to her, the WHO cooperates with all countries that show interest in this initiative; the Organization will later give recommendations about what kind of information should be in these documents.

It is worth remembering that the initiative to introduce the vaccination passports came from Greece. The country offered to impose the immunization passports before the touristic season so that people who got their dose of vaccine could travel worldwide easily.

Currently, the EU shows no consent in this regard. Spain, Poland and Finland support the initiative, while France and Romania claim it is too soon to even talk about imposing such passports.

In February, citizens of Copenhagen took it to the street, protesting against the government's plans to introduce the Covid vaccination passports.

The WHO assumes that such IDs should not be compulsory for traveling abroad.
