The European Commission has proposed introducing a digital certificate to prove someone has been vaccinated for Covid-19, APA reports citing BBC.

Ursula von der Leyen, the head of the commission, says the certificate will also document negative tests and whether the person has had Covid before.

"What is the function of this certificate? It shows... whether the person has either been vaccinated or (had) a recent negative test or has recovered from Covid and thus (has) antibodies," she tells a news conference.

The certificate will ensure the results are mutually recognised in every member state, she adds.
