UK considers “vaccine passports” to prove Covid protection – BBC News

by Moin Uddin Ahmed Tipu

Boris Johnson has said that the UK government is considering whether to introduce so-called “vaccine passports”.

The document could take the form of a vaccine certificate, providing evidence of Covid protection, and the NHS mobile app could be modified to carry the information.

But the prime minister was keen to emphasise the difficulties involved and it’s an idea that he and other ministers have dismissed in the past.

Boris Johnson said he was confident that all restrictions in England could be lifted by 21st June.

In Scotland, the first minister Nicola Sturgeon has unveiled what she called a “deliberately cautious” strategy with a phased re-opening of the economy.

Huw Edwards presents BBC News at Ten reporting by deputy political editor Vicki Young and home editor Mark Easton.

I see totalitarian policies and things that can be transformed in social credit measures like in CCP China have big proponents in many places.

It's bloody common sense, give us a vaccine passport and let us live our lives again and those that don't get the vaccine, STAY IN YOUR HOUSE YOU DIRTY SPREADER!

Why do we never do anything about this

Gary Kiebel February 24, 2021 - 4:46 AM

Set a time: Only those that are vaccinated vr's non vaccinated.
Are life is about to be scheduled. Just hope it will not be predicted. But, unfortunatly it will be.

That Parliament petition to disregard the 'Vaccine Passports' looks to be 'void'…Pointless…Are you ready for the introduction of them to go to your local supermarket or pub?

laura Embleton February 24, 2021 - 4:46 AM

I'm not sure how I feel about vaccine passports but if it has to happened to keep people safe and healthy then
I'm all for it

What an absolute disgrace

great news! we don't need masks anymore!

Sam Graham February 24, 2021 - 4:48 AM

This won't end well for the government. People are furious

Thahleel Abid February 24, 2021 - 4:48 AM

Why not instead of vaccinating me, you give Vaccine Deployment Minister Nadhim Zahawi and Secretary of State for Health Matt Hancock an extra dose to give them some more protection against COVID? I will happily pay for their vaccines, just let me know when (I'm not trolling, you'll have to vaccinate my dead body before you vaccinate me against something I don't need a vaccine for 🙂)

Ben Watson February 24, 2021 - 4:49 AM

Pure evil

David Quinn February 24, 2021 - 4:49 AM

This will cause deep, deep division in society! Not a good idea. Don’t go here! On top of all hardship on the average person this past year. This will really stir up a hornets nest & lead to big social problems.

Matt Wilson February 24, 2021 - 4:49 AM

What? The government are playing a dangerous game now

astroboirap February 24, 2021 - 4:49 AM

you can still pass it on if you're vaccinated can't you?

Spencer Stock February 24, 2021 - 4:49 AM

it just wrong we are meant to be in a free county

Jack Smith February 24, 2021 - 4:50 AM

They should be mandatory for those eligible for the vaccine for travel and entry into certain places. The only excuse to not get the vaccine is a medical reason. It’s perfectly safe

Gareth H February 24, 2021 - 4:50 AM

Good. Also, we should start banning children from daycare who haven't had the MMR vaccine.

Bono Jovi February 24, 2021 - 4:50 AM

Of course as a precursor to the chip

Isn't this one of Teflon Tony Blair's ideas as an advisor to Boris?

Absolutely authoritarian. Dictatorial even.

Research China's Social Credit system. If you don't fancy that future for your children and grandchildren, now's the time to speak up.

Mol Gee February 24, 2021 - 4:53 AM

AGAIN David Ickes so-called conspiracy's are coming true, no wonder the media, social media try to de-platform him, I bet the BBC would not dare have a hours interview with him, why silence him, what have you got to hide? Free Speech does not exist now. I don't believe any of the road map either, Masks forever, social distancing forever, so no point having a vaccine, Hope I'm wrong, but up to now, all the 'plans' are coming to surface. Be lucky if this comment gets deleted, already lost 2 YouTube channels.

Jason Tempel February 24, 2021 - 4:54 AM

Show me your papers BORIS shame on you all

Michael February 24, 2021 - 4:54 AM

This is no different from the ‘Yellow card’ you need to carry with you when you go to countries where you could catch yellow fever

darkflighter100 February 24, 2021 - 4:54 AM

Those who are calling these vaccine passports a conspiracy theory want you to stay indoors the rest of your life. Don't listen to these Charlatans!

HalfEatenMushroom February 24, 2021 - 4:54 AM

Thank god they put this through! This will help us get back to normal quicker

No Reason Why Not February 24, 2021 - 4:54 AM

To not have some kind of social passport based on vaccination status would make a mockery of the whole effort. Despite the agonies, there doesn't seem any other responsible way forward.

Of course, a scannable RFID chip like what dogs have under the skin would be the simplest solution.

Buy Physical Silver Bullion. Get out of the criminal system of paper currencies and help to destroy the criminal banking elites. Those who have actually corrupted our governments. Go straight for their Achilles heel. Visit WallStreetSilver on Reddit. Power to the people.

Any Old Biscuit February 24, 2021 - 4:55 AM

Karens in the comments are mad and I'm all for it
