A new push is happening for so-called vaccine passports.

Airlines are saying such a program would make it easier for people to travel during the pandemic.

They're asking the White House to develop federal guidance for temporary health credentials that would keep track of travelers' negative COVID tests and proof of vaccination.

Now airlines do not want vaccines mandated for travel but hope a digital health pass will allow people to avoid domestic and international quarantine requirements.
