UK considers “vaccine passports” to prove Covid protection
BBC, 24 Feb 2021
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.
