Countries adopt immunity passports, with ethical and health dilemmas; listen to the podcast – 06/18/2021 – Podcasts

The advance of vaccination around the world has given rise to plans to create the so-called Immunity Passport, a document that would guarantee access to cultural events, restaurants – and even countries.

Last week, the European Parliament approved the creation of such a document, which will allow the movement of people through the 27 countries of the European Union, without any quarantine requirement or testing for coronaviruses.

In Brazil, the Senate approved a bill creating the certificate of vaccination and health security. The text still needs to be approved by the House.

The adoption of immunity passports raises a number of ethical, political and health questions. In this Friday’s episode (18th), Café da Manhã discusses these questions with the doctor and public health lawyer Daniel Dourado, researcher at the USP’s Center for Research in Health Law and at the University of Paris. .

The audio program is published on Spotify, the streaming service partner of Folha in the initiative and specializing in music, podcast and video. You can listen to the episode by clicking below. To access the application, simply register for free.
