COVID vaccine passports will be no different to the normal documents you must show to travel to certain countries. [Muaz Kory/Al Jazeera] By Dr Amir Khan25 Feb 2021 Recently, I was involved in a very heated television debate about vaccine passports.

MARCO LANCASTERFEBRUARY 26, 2021 Sony made quite a buzz using the PlayStation 5 super-fast SSD as one of its main selling points.
