European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen says she will present a vaccine passport proposal during March.

The goal is to have a digital passport in place that can document whether someone has been vaccinated against COVID-19. 

For those who have not received the vaccine yet, the passport can contain information about test results, von der Leyen wrote on Twitter.

The passport will respect privacy and considerations for data security, she added.

Some EU member states have already made similar moves. Greece launched its digital vaccination certificate in February for those who have received two doses of the coronavirus vaccine.

Other EU member states that are currently issuing or asking for vaccine certificates include the Czech Republic, Spain, Poland, Italy, and Portugal.
