Covid immunity passports are being looked at

The minister responsible for introducing coronavirus vaccines has stated that the bumps will not be mandatory.

Health Minister Nadhim Zahawi told BBC Radio 4 “The World At One”: “I think it is right that it is voluntary.

“People have to be able to decide for themselves whether they want to be vaccinated or not.

“But I think the very strong message you are going to see is the way we are bringing the whole country back. It’s good for your family, it’s good for your community, it’s good for your country, vaccinated to become.”

“And ultimately, people have to make a decision.”

When asked if people who received the Covid-19 sting were given some sort of “immunity pass” to prove they were vaccinated, Mr. Zahawi said, “We are testing the technology.

“And, of course, a way that people can tell their GP that they have been vaccinated.

“But I also think you will likely find that restaurants, bars, cinemas, and other venues, sports venues, are likely to use this system as well – as they did with the app.

“I think the pressure will come from both sides in a lot of ways, from service providers who say, ‘Look, show us you have been vaccinated’.

“But we will also make the technology as simple and accessible as possible.”

When asked if this meant that people who did not have a vaccination were severely limited in their options, the minister said, “I think people have to make a decision.

“But I think you will likely find that a lot of service providers want to get into it the way they did the app.”
