Anutin-led panel to consider vaccine passport, travel bubble


Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul said on Wednesday that people who have been vaccinated against Covid-19 will be given a book, which can be used as evidence for travel and to boost public confidence.

“The Public Health Ministry is making preparations to bring life back to normal, restore businesses and revive the Thai economy,” Anutin said.

Details inside the vaccine passport.

The National Communicable Diseases Committee, which is chaired by Anutin, will on March 8 discuss the vaccine passport as well as the option of creating a travel bubble with countries where a large number of people have been vaccinated.

He also said people should continue wearing masks in public as recent statistics show that the Thais, in general, are dropping their guard. The mask-wearing rate is now below 80 per cent, lower than last month during which more than 90 per cent of people were seen wearing a mask.
