Vaccine passports
« on: April 04, 2021, 06:45:39 AM »
What say we?

I don't see a problem. We will need them to travel abroad for holidays.  The vaccination is vountary and I don't see why the passport should not also be voluntary. Freedom of choice and all that.

BUT it works both ways. Why not let businesses of any kind also vuluntarily decide if they wish to let you onto their premises, including demanding a v passport if they choose?  If my local pub or hairdresser or whatever says, our house, our rules, who am I to question that?

Thin edge of the wedge I say. Travelling abroad is totally different from going about your daily life in your own country. I certainly don't expect to show my 'papers' whilst going about my business.

Let the market decide but if we know other countries are going to demand some sort of verifiable passport then yes the government should look at making it possible - for a price just as with normal passports

Why an additional passport? Surely an 'official' stamp in your current passport would suffice.

Stamps are so easily forged.  I know this from watching Colditz a long long time ago.

It's just not going to be practical for small businesses, pubs etc and it will just be like the whole face mask debacle  - there will be so many people with exemptions or excuses .

As for large events I am sure they will bring some app in , or add an extra feature to the track and trace one , to show if you have had a test or vaccination  that should be easy to  verify.

I'm with Uncle on this. It is a pointless, intrusive scheme and we should have nothing to do with it...

Good to see that Gove got an absolute kicking below the line of his Telegraph article.  lol:
