UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that vaccine passports would be mandatory to enter “crowded venues” from the end of September after the UK government removed almost all Covid-19 restrictions from England for “Freedom Day”.
Johnson previously said that domestic vaccine passports would never be introduced, but on the day that all coronavirus restrictions were supposed to be lifted, the vaccine was declared mandatory.
“By the end of September everyone aged 18 and over will have the chance to receive full vaccination and the additional two weeks for that protection to really take hold,” said British Vaccines Minister Nadhim Zahawi. “So at that point we plan to make full vaccination a condition of entry to nightclubs and other venues where large crowds gather.”
From the end of September, the only other option will be to provide a negative test result to enter such venues, making the vaccine de facto mandatory because “a new more evasive variant could come along at any time”.
Jonhson also warned that the government reserved the right to do what’s necessary to “protect” the public. “I would remind everybody that some of life’s most important pleasures and opportunities are likely to be increasingly dependent on vaccination,” said Johnson.
This means that domestic vaccine passports will be required in future for travel and to enter public venues. Those who refuse now face a life of permanent lockdown in the UK.
