In addition, the Japanese government has been revealed that it intends to introduce a "vaccine passport" system to prove vaccination against the new crown from mid to late July.
At present, the Japanese government has determined the contents of the "vaccine passport" system, and is making relevant adjustments.
According to reports, the main content of Japan's "vaccine passport" system is that in the initial period of implementation of the system, the municipal government responsible for specific vaccination work will issue "vaccine passports" to relevant persons in written form based on vaccination records.
"Vaccine passport" will record the holder's name, nationality, passport number to prove identity, vaccination date and other information.
The report pointed out that in order to improve the convenience of the "vaccine passport", the Japanese government has also decided to discuss the application and issuance of an electronic "vaccine passport".
