The White House on Tuesday ruled out imposing any form of a coronavirus vaccine passport in the United States, but said private businesses were free to explore the idea.

Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters: "The government is not now, nor will be, supporting a system that requires Americans to carry a credential. There will be no federal vaccinations database and no federal mandate requiring everyone to obtain a single vaccination credential."

Vaccine passports, showing that someone has been inoculated against Covid-19, are seen by Boris Johnson as a potentially powerful tool in safely reopening Britain to mass gatherings and travel, but the move is opposed by a number of Tory MPs and the Labour Party.
