The planned introduction of these Covid certificates would open up EU-wide travel.
European Commission President Ursula Von Der Leyen said: “What is the function of this certificate? It states whether the person has either been vaccinated or has a recent negative test or has recovered and thus has antibodies.
“Secondly the certificate will show data [that is] mutually recognised in every member state.
“Thirdly with this certificate, we aim to reinstate the freedom of movement in a safe, responsible and trusted manner.
“We are aiming at the reopening but a precondition of that is vaccination and the vaccines.”
