The European Commission introduced its plans to produce a “Digital Green Pass” that would alert travel authorities if a traveler has been jabbed by a coronavirus vaccine, a report said.
Euronews reported that a draft of the law indicated that besides a coronavirus inoculation, the pass will also contain other medical “statements.” If all goes well, the bill could be introduced by July.
Ursula von der Leyen, the president of the commission, reportedly said, “The Digital Green Pass should facilitate Europeans’ lives. The aim is to gradually enable them to move safely in the European Union or abroad—for work or tourism.
The move has been praised by leaders in the bloc, such as German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who said, “Everyone agreed that we need a digital vaccination certificate.” 
The Euronews report pointed out that many countries in Europe rely on a profitable summer travel season; Greece became the first country to issue a vaccination certificate. The country will be open to tourists from Israel if they’ve been vaccinated.
The BBC also reported that Cyprus announced it will welcome British tourists beginning 1 May, so long as they’ve received both jabs of the Pfizer or Moderna shots.
The report stated 27 million jobs in Europe are based on tourism, which amounts for about 10 percent of the European Union’s GDP, considering the other industries that rely on travel, at least on the periphery.
The Trends Journal reported last month that Israel announced its own Green Passport, which would allow its citizens to have access to various venues like theaters and hotels.
TREND FORECAST: No COVID Jab, no Freedom. We maintain our forecast for strong anti-vax political movements in nations across the globe. To date, according to the CDC, some 17.7 percent of Americans have been COVID vaccinated since distribution began in December. 
It should also be noted that Europe’s COVID vaccination rate is much lower. For example, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Norway, Belgium, and Greece have, according to Euronews, on average, about a 3-percent vaccination rate.
Thus, we see limited Green Passport dictates that will prevent the un-vaccinated to travel, go to sporting events, concerts, etc.
