Are Vaccine Passports A Good Idea?

As the COVID-19 vaccines start getting into the arms of the general population, there is a lot of anticipation about the possibility of international travel resuming sometime this year. The use of a vaccine or immunity passport is being touted as the way forward, alongside the rollout of immunisation programmes in many countries. As concerns are raised over the feasibility and ethics of vaccine passports, we get a balanced view from two guests: Assoc Prof Dr Karen A. Grépin, Health Policy Specialist from the School of Public Health, University of Hong Kong; and Datuk Dr Nick Boden, Chief Executive Officer of Immunitee Health Passport.
