Passports for people vaccinated against COVID may become a reality as early as 2021, said Kirill Dmitriev, head of the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF).


I think several countries will introduce it faster, and others will do it more slowly. Of course, there will also be flights either using testing systems or vaccine passports, Dmitriev said on the air of the Rossiya 24 channel.

Some time ago, Russian Healthcare Minister Mikhail Murashko said that in January, it would be possible to get a passport of a person vaccinated against coronavirus on the website of state services.

Belarus Healthcare Ministry has launched a campaign for mass vaccination of the population using the Russian drug Sputnik V, NEWS.ru reported earlier.
