Written answers (Question to Health)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 564, 569 and 609 together.

Preparations are underway interdepartmentally with a view to issuing EU Digital COVID Certificates reflecting additional doses.

This follows and is in line with the Implementing Decision adopted by the Commission on 17 November which lays down the technical specifications relating to additional Covid vaccination doses, and further discussions at EU level.

Theses specifications, concerning the value sets established on semantic level to allow uniform technical implementations for the EU Digital COVID Certificate, are being considered to ensure continued interoperability to support free movement across the EU.
