Ep.260 Controversy over vaccine pass

Foreign Correspondents Ep.260
Controversy over vaccine pass

Korea has launched a special COVID-19 transition committee aimed at finding ways to gradually return life to normal. The committee mentioned it would consider introducing a vaccine pass that fully vaccinated people can use to access selected venues. Vaccine passes are already in place in some countries, including Germany and France. A mandate for all workers in Italy to show a Green Pass has sparked violent protests across the country. In Korea, there have been several petitions on the Blue House website opposing the vaccine pass program. In this week’s edition of Foreign Correspondents, we sit down with our panel of journalists to discuss the debate over vaccine passes overseas and their implications on the vaccination rate and a transition to normalcy. An Arirang TV news reporter also joins us to explain how the Korean public is responding to the vaccine pass plan.
