New York to adopt program similar to ‘green passport’ of Israel
The green passport in Israel is granted to those who are a week past their second coronavirus vaccination, or those recovered from the virus who currently are not eligible for the vaccine.
Green passports are required to enter certain places and to participate in certain activities. Only people who have been vaccinated or have recovered from coronavirus will be eligible for one.
New York’s version, released Friday, will be dubbed the “Excelsior Pass,” and like Israel’s version will be available via an app to prove a person’s vaccination status.
