The Buenos Aires Minister of Transportation, Jorge D’Onofrio, announced that they will require the sanitary pass in medium and long-distance passenger transport. This measure implies that all passengers must have a vaccination scheme to be able to travel.

As explained by the official in an interview with the news channel C5N, the details of the measure will be defined in the coming days by the Minister of Health, Nicolás Kreplak, and announced by Governor Axel Kicillof. “It already has the opinion of the ministries and in a very short time it will be implemented”.

Yesterday Infobae announced that three public universities will request the certificate from their students and there are others that are evaluating adopting similar measures.

D’Onofrio also said that the pass should also be applied in schools to force families who have not yet done so to vaccinate their children, although that decision will not depend on his portfolio.
