São Paulo Governor Announces that It Will Adopt A Vaccination Passport in São Paulo

If the federal government does not adhere to the certificate, the state will request it from the 15th

São Paulo

Governor João Doria (PSDB) stated that, if the federal government does not adhere to the vaccination passport by December 15, the document will be required throughout São Paulo starting on that date.

On Tuesday (7), the Jair Bolsonaro (PL) government announced that it will require a five-day quarantine for unvaccinated travelers entering Brazil. For vaccinated individuals, the presentation of proof and a negative test for the coronavirus dispenses with the isolation period.

"Brazil cannot become a tourist paradise for deniers. The denial of this country only exists in the minds of this minister [of Health, Marcelo Queiroga] and the president," said the governor.

According to Doria, the document will be required for those who enter the state through airports, ports or by road.

The governor says that the decision of the Supreme Federal Court defined that states and municipalities may have stricter rules than the federal government to legislate on health issues.
