Vaccine Ops & Digital Immunity Passport
For most countries, an extensive vaccination process is underway. There are currently ongoing discussions in the EU, WHO, WEF as well as within most countries on how vaccine-certificates can be part of the effort to reopen the global economy and enable cross-border travel. However, for a number of countries it is “test and learn” for the vaccine ops that will ensure that everyone is offered the vaccine soon.

Some have central vaccine registries; others have decentralized and while a number even face incomplete or non-compatible systems for registering vaccines.
