In order to introduce such a measure Mr Vervoort would need the agreement of the other regional, language community and federal governments. The Brussels First Minister hopes that the measure will serve to increase the vaccination rate in the capital.
The Brussels-Capital Region is way behind Flanders and Wallonia when it come to immunisation against coronavirus. Furthermore vaccination rates in cities elsewhere in Belgium (Antwerp, Liège, Ghent, Charleroi) are all way above those in Brussels. Currently the Covid Safe Ticket is only used at large scale events such as music festivals, concerts and football matches.
