Hi Steve,

Great. I’ll keep you in the loop.

Yes, the reference standard to which hopefully all other approaches will converge to is the one of the WHO, which

also seems to shares some similarities with the one outlined by the EU eHealth Network (cf. [1], [2]) for example.

and  <https://mGov4.EU> https://mGov4.EU, have started to set up a Cross Community Working Group for 

Vaccination Certificate Service Interoperability, which aims at pushing forward reasonable 

specifications and interoperable implementations in this domain. 


As we assume that at least some CCG members are active in this domain, 

we would like to invite those CCG members and the CCG itself to join us here. 


We plan to organise a virtual kick-off meeting in the calendar week 

April 12th through 16th 2021 in order to discuss which reasonable specifications

are already available and where we need to put efforts into improving the 



Are there any CCG-Members on the list who are working on Vaccination 

Certificate Services and related topics? 


If yes, would it make sense to add CCG to the list of involved communities?
