What, exactly, I have been wondering, is the point of being the proud owner of a digital Covid vaccination certificate when the only person who ever looks at it is me? There it resides in all its glory on my phone and also in a printed-out version tucked into my purse and there it has stayed all summer long, untroubled by anyone’s prying eyes.

I have left the country three times since acquiring my Covid cert, flying first to Venice at the end of July, to the UK in August and, most recently, to Greece at the end of September. Not once, in any airport in any of the jurisdictions involved, was I asked to produce the document which proved that I was actually fit to travel.
