Quebec plans to do that in some cases, 2nd dose may not be the same manufacturer but appears they are only doing it with mRNA vaccines.

But with the AZ future deliveries unknown, will be interesting to see how provinces handle it.

I have read that is something the scientists are researching, but as far as I know no decision has been made to date.

Looks like research is happening on that front and data should be available by summer.

NS in 2 week shut down, announced ca 5:30 pm last Thursday, initially Halifax Metro region but now extended to the whole province.

It seems people travelled from Ontario to NS, did not quarantine (ignored 14 days quarantine period), met up with relations and friends.

30 people were infected from that contact alone, cases now increasing. Schools are open in some areas eg Halifax municipal unless there has been a case reported, then that school is closed for 2 weeks . All schools in some districts have been closed regardless.

Anyone with any possibility of being infected has to go and be tested ....... this includes school children and teachers plus all their family members if there has been a case in their school. Parents of school children also have to quarantine for 2 weeks and supervise online teaching.

It is the most cases that NS has had during the whole pandemic period.

The Ontarians are now apparently back in Ontario, suggestions that they should be traced and fined or jailed.

That's a lot of flights. After commercial air travel was curtailed last year I looked at a flight tracker site and was surprised at how many planes were still operating. I can drive about 16 hours to Oliver, get out once in the middle to pump gas in Fort McLeod, and with a little planning and a bag lunch (or picking up food curbside) not come near anyone the whole trip. That's got to be a lot safer than flying.
Our numbers and test positivity continue to trend high. I've only been interacting closely with 3 friends, who have been taking me to appointments and shopping, tons of help since I got hurt, and 1 of them just found out someone he works beside every day tested positive on Friday and was just notified. Everyone has been self monitoring anyway, but this is just another worry. A 2nd hand case like that doesn't preclude my physio or surgeon's appointments, so the regular mask and sanitizer.

It looks like the EU may be taking a lead on vaccine passports. I very much hope other jurisdictions not least Canada follow soon.

American tourists who have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 will be allowed to visit the European Union this summer, a top official told The Times.

I wish they would stop talking about "covid passports".

It should be called a vaccination record card ......... just like the ones that we used to have to show whether we had received any childhood vaccinations.

I had one that only showed my polio vaccinations, because there weren't any other vaccinations in the 1940s. But we had a full card for my daughter born in the 1970s.

Vaccination record sounds a lot less officious than "passport", and could possibly be more likely accepted by more people.

Countries may want more official proof than just the record received when getting the vaccine which can be easily faked in many countries including Canada, so I could see why a more official vaccine passport might be necessary.

Some in BC are just hand written on a card, anyone with a decent printer can create said card, mine is a little better as it is at least a printed prescription label, but I could see countries wanting a universal type document that is more difficult to forge and easier to ensure its valid and authentic.

However, the covid "passport" can also be faked, or at least the versions so far suggested. So that might not be good for very long.

Plus, there is apparently a lot of resistance in the UK against having to carry a covid passport, as more "officious control". Also questions from business owners as to how they are expected to check them.

I believe there would be a good case for anyone wishing to take action against this idea.. due to human rights / discrimination.
I very much hope NO countries implement them. Other countries are already taking action against them. https://www.reuters.com/article/uk-h...-idUSKBN2BP0H3
".......discriminatory use of COVID status certification to deny individuals access to general services, businesses or jobs"
Some people can't have the vaccine due to underlying health issues - if they implemented 'covid passports (record of vaccination)' then that would be discriminating against those that aren't able to obtain one, through no fault of their own.
