The National Police on Thursday expressed support for plans to use barangay health passes for unvaccinated persons who would be riding public vehicles, according to a report by Daily Tribune.

He, however, said the force is still awaiting the issuance of detailed guidelines on using barangay health passes.

Carlos said clear instruction in the implementation would help avoid confusion and resistance from the affected residents.

“We have received reports about the proliferation of fake vaccination cards since the launch of the ‘no vaccination, no ride’ policy of the Department of Transportation. Now, the possibility of producing fake health passes is never remote, so we need to be specific with the inspection and verification process,” he added.
