The implementation of vaccination passports in Ukraine will begin after most citizens can have access to vaccines. Minister of Healthcare Maksym Stepanov said so in an interview at Ukraine 24 TV channel.

"It will be possible as soon as most categories of people have access to vaccines", he said.

According to the official, currently Ukraine is negotiating with the EU about implementation of immune certificates.

"We are staying in touch all the time. There was a report by the EU Commissioner for Justice, and he shared his vision. But that caused a lot of arguments, incluyding these among the MEPs; they argued about avoiding oppression of the rights of those who have allergies, et cetera. As long as we are concerned, we're ready for any development of events when it comes to introduction of Covid passports. The data about vaccinated people and those who recovered from Covid is gathered in a single system", Stepanov concluded.
