The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all sectors of activity, public health, business, and civil society. With several attempts to re-open borders and kick-start the economy, “vaccine passports” or “vaccination certificates” are now in the spotlight. Although countries across the world have already introduced such instruments, there is still limited information on how best to use them. To further understand the contextual application of vaccination certificates in Thailand, the Health Intervention and Technology Assessment Program (HITAP), Ministry of Public Health, hosted a webinar on 9th April 2021. Titled “COVID Marathon – The First Finishing Line: Re-opening the Country by Using Vaccine Passport?”, the session brought together representatives from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Thai Chamber of Commerce to provide insights into the topic.
