To enter into Restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and outdoor music festivals in some parts of the United States, you may need to bring your COVID-19 immunisation card or a digital copy. After resisting the divisive concept of vaccine passports for the majority of the pandemic. A rapidly growing number of private venues and some local officials are now requiring proof of immunisation in public settings to curb the spread of the highly transmissible delta variant of the coronavirus — and to reassure nervous customers.
It’s unlikely that the United States would follow France’s lead, which began requiring people to produce a QR code indicating they had a special viral permit before they can dine in Restaurants or travel across the country on Monday.

On the first day of the Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago in late July, organisers reported that more than 90% of the 100,000 participants had proof of vaccination. With the majority of the rest showing they’d recently had a negative COVID-19 test. Hundreds more were sent away due to a lack of documentation.
