This Royal Society review of vaccine passports is meant to assist in the understanding and control of COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019]. From the Executive Summary: "Vaccine passports are certificates to establish proof of vaccination linked to the identity of the holder; the purpose of a passport is to aid the return to pre-COVID-19 activities and travel without compromising personal or public health. We propose 12 criteria that should be satisfied by a COVID-19 vaccine passport [...] Current evidence and precedents suggest that a COVID-19 vaccine passport system is feasible, but that not all criteria have yet been satisfied and consideration should be given to what longer term precedents this may create."
