After France announced the integration of its vaccine passport, more than a million people got their doses. Earlier this week the Quebec government started to enforce its vaccine passport in the form of an electronic quick response (QR) code. British Colombia launched its own version earlier in the month and more provinces plan to do the same.
These passports will include proof that an individual has been fully vaccinated against the novel coronavirus.
