Priority question for written answer  P-002999/2021
to the Council
Rule 138
Tom Vandenkendelaere (PPE)
 Subject: Practical implementation of the Digital Green Certificate: situation of children and young people

When applying restrictions to freedom of movement, recital 26 of the proposal for a Regulation on the Digital Green Certificate requires Member States to avoid any direct or indirect discrimination against persons who have not been vaccinated owing to the fact that they do not fall within the target group for which the vaccines are currently being administered or for which the vaccines are currently authorised, such as children and adolescents.

In the coming days and weeks, Member States will roll out the Digital Green Certificate and potentially adopt additional measures for non-vaccinated persons. However, these measures are likely to be very different when it comes to the specific situation of non-vaccinated children and adolescents: exemption from testing up to a certain age in one Member State, obligations under certain conditions in another Member State, rapid tests allowed in a different one again ... For example, it is likely to become unworkable for youth associations and youth travel organisations to offer quality cross-border travel programmes for different age groups. The same applies to families going on holiday.

Does the Council therefore envisage any initiatives to streamline as far as possible any additional measures taken by Member States, particularly those relating to children and adolescents?
