Ten days ago the FOPH said the certificate would also be available by the end of June for people who have received a negative test result or who have recovered from the virus.
The president of Swiss Pharmacists Association Pharmasuisse, one of the organisations responsible for developing the Covid-19 certificate, was surprised by the news. Martine Ruggli-Ducrot says she had not been consulted by the FOPH, but she wanted to reassure people.
“The FOPH favours this solution of starting with vaccinated people. It’s true that this step is discriminatory, but I hope it won’t last too long. The FOPH has indicated that it should move quickly to the next stages,” she told RTS.
