European Union certification named after the “green certificate” It will go into use on 26 June across the European Union. It must apply in all European Union countries and can also apply to Norway, Iceland, Switzerland and Liechtenstein. It should be free, available in both digital and paper form, and may be issued in all official languages of the European Union.
Member states decided that in addition to vaccination, information on antibodies and recent coronation tests should also be recorded so that it could be viewed easily with respect to travel within the European Union.
In Sweden, the digital agency Management (Digg) has previously been mandated to develop digital vaccine certifications that will be available from June 1. Now they desperately need to add the other two pieces as well. Digitization Minister Anders Leighman (S) doesn’t think there should be a problem.
We are in the forefront because we have already prepared this extract from the vaccination record. On June 26, we hope all Swedes get the green certification in their mobile phone, he told DN.
Parliament did not have time to vote on the motion but it is expected to do so by the end of the month. According to Egeman, the message of the day was significant.
There will be more information on how to obtain a vaccination permit later this spring and according to Ygeman there will be a special customer service for everyone who wants to ask questions.
The government has allocated 30 million Swedish kronor To develop the required digital infrastructure. At the level of the European Union, a million euros have been allocated, which member states can apply for grants for this purpose.
Anders Ygeman believes that a Europe in which people travel as before the pandemic feels distant in the current situation when authorities sound the alarm about the continuing dangerous spread of the infection.
But you must have two ideas in your head at the same time. If we do not invest in obtaining this certification at the moment, it will not be there when we are ready to travel again. At the start of the year, the European Union plans to have 70 percent of the population receive at least one dose of the vaccine. Hopefully, this will influence the spread of the infection, says Anders Ygeman.
