Welsh people will be given so-called “immunity passports” proving that they’ve gotten the COVID-19 vaccination, the country’s health minister said Friday.
The rollout of the “credit card-sized” cards in Wales comes days after the United Kingdom became the first country to approve a vaccine against the deadly bug — with the first jabs expected to begin shortly.
“Those receiving a COVID-19 vaccination will be given a credit card-sized NHS Wales immunization card which will have the vaccine name, date of immunization and batch number of each of the doses given handwritten on them,” said Welsh health minister Vaughan Gething.
He said the card would also serve as a reminder for people to get the second of the two-part vaccine by Pfizer and BioNTech.
