Government official states that it’s premature to be discussing immunity passports

A senior government official has stated that it’s premature to be discussing the idea of immunity passports for people who are vaccinated against Covid-19.

Department of the Taoiseach Assistant Secretary-General Liz Canavan stated that there is a possibility that those who are vaccinated against the virus can still pass it on; and that there are uncertainties surrounding the timespan of immunity and if booster injections will be needed.

Raising concerns on the growing number of cases, Ms Canavan stated that it’s the choices that people will make leading up to Christmas that will increase the spread of the virus.
