From top: EU Covid Cert; Junior minister Ossian Smyth
Via Irish Examiner:
There will be a “continuing requirement” on people to provide proof of vaccine status for at least another year, a Government minister has indicated.
Minister of State Ossian Smyth has said the EU’s Digital Covid Cert scheme is due to expire at the end of June 2022, but he expects it will be required beyond that.
“I think that there will be a continuing requirement for vaccination status, if not in Ireland, certainly to travel. And what we have seen with the Delta threat is that a new variant can emerge without warning which is stronger or more contagious and requires new vaccinations to deal with it. So with that in mind, I would expect the Covid certification is going to continue.”
