Vaccine Certificates: a podcast with Anit Mukherjee, WPF’s Pam Dixon, and Camilla Ravnbøl

Anit Mukherjee, Policy Fellow with the Center for Global Development, hosted a podcast on vaccine certificates June 15, 2021 with WPF’s Pam Dixon and Camilla Ravnbøl, postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Copenhagen. The podcast is available on iTunes, and for download or listening on the CGD website.

What we talked about:

As vaccination campaigns gear up around the world, talk has turned to the logistics and ethics of providing people with vaccination certificates or, for purposes of travel, vaccination “passports.”

  • How do these certificates work?
  • What challenges do they pose?
  • And how do we make sure no one gets left behind?

These are some of the issues we tackle on this episode of the CGD Podcast, the first since the podcast’s hiatus during the pandemic shutdowns. Together we discuss what gaps exist in current certification systems and what an ideal system might look like.
