It would be more sensible to work on a very sensitive and fast virus test that can be reasonably administered to everyone before boarding a flight. Still not perfect, but it at least detects the presence of the virus directly instead of depending on long winded possibly erroneous, statistical assumptions based on vaccination of various sorts with different efficacy and different periods of effectiveness, possibly.If the vaccine is just 95% effective, and its effectiveness degrades over time, and it varies in different populations, and you need to be revaccinated periodically, not sure what a passport verification of vaccination will ultimately prove, other than a false sense of reassurance.
Moral of the story is, keep you N95 or better masks on most of the time when in enclosed space, specially if you are in a high risk category. There are a few really nice transparent masks coming on the market as we speak. Come to think of it, it could become a space age fashion statement!
