We are sharing the following information item, which may be of interest: Update 9 of the COVID-19 Vaccine Toolkit.

COVID-19 Vaccine Toolkit – Update 9

We wanted to draw your attention to the following updates to the COVID-19 Vaccine Toolkit:

  • Information on proof of vaccination
  • Community message from treaties 6, 7 and 8
