Digital vaccination certificates will be a major breakthrough in the fight to incentivise vaccination, says Bruce Cameron.

The campaign against anti-vaxxers is starting to gain ground with life assurers and reinsurers starting to warn anti-vaxxers they could be punished for their rather selfish attitude, often based on false claims on social media and queer logic, with higher premiums - even on existing policies.
