The European Union will discuss Greece’s recommendation to issue certificates to EU citizens who have been vaccinated against the Chinese coronavirus in order to reestablish freedom of movement.
Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis wrote to European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen this week with the proposal, saying that he wanted to see a “standardised certificate, which will prove that an individual has been successfully vaccinated”.
Mitsotakis added that the certificates would also ensure “the quickest possible re-establishment of freedom of movement between member-states, but also with third countries”, according to I Kathimerini.

The Greek leader stated that his country would not make taking the vaccine mandatory to travel, but those who have taken the vaccine should be free to do so.
