The head of the region, Radiy Khabirov, announced the launch of a project to issue electronic “antiquated passports”, which should push people to get vaccinated.
As follows from the post on the Facebook page, as well as the recording of the meeting in the government of the republic, residents of Bashkiria who received antibodies after vaccination or postponed coronavirus infection,
will be able to issue an electronic document on the portal of public services, giving a number of reliefs in restrictive measures. You can present your “passport” using a QR code on your device or on paper. Data operator
the Ministry of Digital Development of Public Administration of Bashkiria will speak.
Thus, Bashkirians over 65 will be able to freely visit theaters and shops, and will be exempted from the obligation to self-isolate. At the same time, as the head of the region notes, public institutions
will be able to start filling the halls more than 30 percent. Also, residents will be offered a number of discounts in fitness centers, health resorts and retail chains.
Vaccinated teachers will receive additional vacation days, and educational leaders will receive incentive payments based on new performance indicators for
number of vaccinated workers.
And although in January of the Sakhalin Region Valery Limarenko decided to exempt residents who have undergone vaccination from the mandatory wearing of masks, in Bashkiria the mask regime will remain for everyone until the end
of the year.
Meanwhile, Microsoft Corporation, health insurance company Cigna Corp and Mayo Clinic, and Salesforce and Oracle united in
coalition called the Vaccine Verification Initiative (VCI), which will develop technology to create encrypted copies of vaccination data. The project is similar to Russian
“Antique passports” and aims to provide the opportunity to always carry a document confirming the availability of vaccinations with you in order to freely use the services and visit public
places. In the western version, users are invited to use digital wallets Apple Wallet or Google Pay, as well as print a QR code on paper.
