A Health Ministry document said the vaccine passport would include the holder's name, date of birth, nationality, disease against which the vaccination has been done, number of vaccine shots, vaccination dates, vaccine type, vaccine manufacturers and a serial number.

The data would be encrypted and presented through a QR code which expires 12 months after their creation.

The health ministry said information displayed on the passport would correspond with documents by the WHO and the EU.

So far, 77.2 million people in Vietnam have received their first Covid-19 vaccine shots, 63 million have received two and 1.3 million have received three.

Vietnam has accepted vaccine passports from 78 countries and territories, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Australia, Belarus, Japan, the U.K., and the U.S. have accepted Vietnam's vaccine passport, while it is under "consideration" in other countries.
