Lithuania opposes the inclusion of the Russian vaccine against the Sputnik V coronavirus in the European COVID passport.
This was stated by the acting Ambassador of Lithuania to the EU Simonas Shatunas, reports Politico.
“Lithuania firmly believes that only vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency should be part of a digital green certificate,” he said.
Earlier it was reported that from June 15, the European Union will introduce a single certificate of vaccination against coronavirus for all citizens of the eurozone. The certificate can be downloaded to your smartphone or printed out in the paper form. The document will have a QR code with all the necessary information about the person (last name, date of birth, passport number, information about whether the owner was vaccinated and what drug, as well as whether he was ill).
It was also reported that the United States came up with its own COVID-passport.
