What are the plans for Covid vaccine passports?

People who have tested positive for coronavirus within the past six months will potentially be considered to have natural immunity from Covid as part of a UK vaccine passport scheme.
Interim findings of the Government’s review into the domestic use of Covid status certification states that ministers believe such a scheme could have an “important role to play both domestically and internationally, as a temporary measure”.
The taskforce review, led by Cabinet Office Minister Michael Gove, is looking at “what standards” should be required for so-called vaccine passports if they are used domestically.
Mr Gove’s review, which is due to be finalised in the summer, has initially found that vaccine passports could “potentially play a role in settings such as theatres, nightclubs, and mass events such as festivals or sports events to help manage risks where large numbers of people are brought together in close proximity”.
According to an eight-page Downing Street paper, those who have tested positive for Covid-19 within the past 180 days would qualify for access to a venue or event requiring Covid certification.
“The Government expects that Covid-status certification could be demonstrated by: an up-to-date vaccine status, a negative lateral flow or PCR test taken at a test site on the same day or the day before their admission to a venue, or by proof of natural immunity, such as through a previous positive PCR for a time limit of 180 days from the date of the positive test and following completion of the self-isolation period,” the document said.

  • Guys, there is a website called WriteToThem. It finds your local MP and acts as a portal to write to him/her. If you want to stop vaccine passports write to your MP and tell them politely that if they want your vote in future they need to vote against the vaccine passport proposals (there is an upcoming vote in Parliament) MP's earn an 81K salary and as such don't want to lose their jobs. If enough of us Write To Them and let them know they might be replaced it might change things.

  • I’ve done everything my government asked of me through this pandemic. I’ve had the jab, I stayed in my bubble, I worked but this, this is too far. Please look to history, when governments start making identification cards mandatory. It’s almost always used to track and control a flow of a populous and when added to the new crime bill. The picture being painted is Grim. Freedom to travel, freedom to work, freedom to gather and the very freedom to speak. Will be taken away under the cloak of safety. Left or right this should scare you because it will be used to shut us all up

  • We are still contagious after vaccination as soon as you contract the virus. The only difference after vaccination is that you yourself have no symptoms. That is also one of the major drawbacks of vaccination. Hundreds of thousands of vaccinated people walk around who, because they themselves do not experience any symptoms of disease, do not know that they are sick and infect others after vaccination. So they just go to work, to visit, to festivals and so on. Such a Vaccination Passport and CoronaCheck app are therefore demonstrably counterproductive. Hordes of people who do not know themselves that they are contagious and who, according to their App, can go anywhere. As a result, you have let in a concentrated group that will infect the other partygoers who have been vaccinated but not yet infected. As a result, there are even more vaccinated, infectious people who do not know themselves that they are infected because they themselves do not experience any symptoms of disease.

  • Imagine you find a prisoner in an unlocked jail cell. Confused, you ask him why he’s sitting there when the door to his cell isn’t even locked. “Oh, it’s unlocked? I didn’t check.” You assure him it’s unlocked and ask again why he doesn’t leave. “Why bother? They’ll probably catch me before I get out.” You look around in confusion. You explain to him that this isn’t even a prison. That he’s simply been told to wear an orange jumpsuit and stay in an unlocked room, but he doesn’t have to comply. All he has to do is leave. “Even if I get away, they’ll just find me and bring me back here. Might as well just stay put.” This is called learned helplessness and 90% of the population are in this state

Whatever way possible they will make it a thing. Make it trend, make it necessary. "Well I'll get one if it means I can get a job and go on holiday". There's no stopping this now, if there was any chance it was not going to succeed they wouldn't attempt it. Can only apologise to future generations who will truly suffer from what's occurring here. I'm glad I don't have kids and I'm glad I won't be around to experience the full weight of totalitarianism.

  • I will tell you this now I will never have a vaccine passport or certificate. This is not a Communist police state country this is a free democratic country and human rights and Civil Liberties are already under attack and this is literally a step of no return. Once we go down this path that is it will be coming off a totalitarian Police state borderline Communist country. If all of the good men and women that fought and died for freedom for this country could see this now I think they would’ve surrendered and let it been won by the Germans. Say no to this vaccine passport app and certificates don’t download it don’t use it and then it will not happen. Just lightly tried to do back in the 1930s with ID cards that people said no they told them up and it ended. Don’t let them bring back a new 21st-century version of it right back say no say no say no resist today and never surrender

  • Once children are offered vaccines, then vaccine passports will be printed for everyone to carry to go shopping or even visiting parks you'll find council guards checking documents! The government is tricking people telling them to take 1st jab and you can fly, but actually very few can fly as countries will be put under traffic light system and many will be under red and amber colours which means it will cost lot of money to go abroad! My advice don't go abroad this year and stuff their vaccines because AstraZeneca is working on booster jabs, so anyone who's taken a jab will end up getting a call for booster jab before winter!

    • It’s other countries that started the vaccine passport idea. They want the return of tourists and are putting pressure on the UK gov to comply. The airline industry is shouting for covid passports as well to kickstart the aviation recovery. If the EU had made a better job of its vaccine rollout, passports would not have been necessary.

    • From what I have read you can get a certificate in one of two ways . The first is to have the vaccine the second is to have a negative covid19 test result ( valid for 3-4 days before you need another test ) . That is fair enough . I think any responsible person wouldn't want to risk spreading a potentially deadly virus to others . Legislation will also be time limited to a year when it will be reviewed . That means it only will last as long as covid19 is a significant threat . From what I understand of the app being developed will use the government database of your status but it will be confidential and not track your whereabouts . I would have a big problem if it were otherwise . But again this seems to be reasonable . As for being trapped in the UK , if you haven't had the vaccine why should a foreign country let you in ? There is nothing out government can do about what foreign countries decide to do .

  • They can't do it because there are far too many human rights laws around discrimination. So don't let this rile you up or rush out to get the vaccine because that's exactly what all this is intended to do. If you want it and you've read up on it and you believe it's good for you, take it. If you're the opposite good for you too. Just make an informed choice, not a coerced one.

    • @Jack Pearson is that why 100% of covid related arrests have been proven to be unlawful?

      Glynn _ShadyGlynn _Shady13 days ago
    • @Glynn _Shady And Art. 8 of the ECHR is equally derogable when the action is proportionate to protect public safety or health. Furthermore the Human Rights Act only applies to government bodies, not to private companies. I don't know why you're so determined to think you're legally protected from new Covid policies. Denial is the worst form of protest.

      Jack PearsonJack Pearson13 days ago
    • @Jack Pearson The human rights court has confirmed that article 8 protects our physical, moral and psychological integrity as well as our right to choose. Failing to respect somebody's competent refusal of medical treatment, and providing treatment against their will (including coercion), is therefore protected against by article 8.

      Glynn _ShadyGlynn _Shady13 days ago
    • @Glynn _Shady Discrimination is legal in any case where it is a 'proportionate means of achieving a legitimate aim'. You would need the courts to accept: (1) Your beliefs about the safety of Covid vaccines are effectively equivalent to a religious belief (the standards on this are set very high - you won't hit them). And either, (2) Covid passports, recommended at this point by the government, are disproportionate, or (3) preventing the spread of Covid is not a legitimate aim. If you think you can pass all those legal tests then you have a lot more faith in the courts than I do.

    • @steve aldridge Once again, you're hypothesising - "potentially allowing hundreds of millions..." you haven't been using Neil Ferguson's defunct modelling predictions, how many decimal places are those out every time? The fact that the government still uses him is testament to the dishonesty that is wrapping easily influenced people like yourself into a panic about easing lockdowns. It's not so much the size of the population but the density of the settlements where that population mainly resides surely, and to take a snapshot of time for any conclusion as you do, is less relevant than looking at the overall picture to date. So, closer analysis of the US and Sweden reveals since the start - Lockdown US = 1 death per 586 people; non-Lockdown Sweden 1 death per 735 people. That is the important statistic you should be paying attention to, not the gradient of a curve at any specific point of the pandemic.

      Peter DuffPeter Duff11 days ago
    • @Peter Duff Has Sweden achieved its aims? Far from it. For a start, its death rate is significantly worse than that of its Nordic neighbours. Denmark’s deaths-per-capita rate is nearly five times lower, while the rate is almost 10 times lower in both Finland and Norway. Indeed, a study published on October 12 in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that Sweden has been among the least effective in containing the virus. Of the countries included in the research, only Sweden and the United States fell into the category of having both high initial mortality rates and having failed to bring those numbers down since then. It is also worth noting that at 10 million people, Sweden’s population is on the smaller side. Adopting herd immunity in much bigger countries such as the US would mean potentially allowing hundreds of millions of people to contract the illness and many of those to die.

      steve aldridgesteve aldridge11 days ago
    • @steve aldridge Yes, Sweden's next door neighbours are doing better, but overall in Europe Sweden is in the middle of the table, and less deaths than Italy, UK, France or the US for example, all of which have had lockdowns. The case fatality rate you quote is meaningless - lockdowns are supposed to slow the spread of the disease, they will have no effect on the fatality rates once someone has got it.

    • @Peter Duff FACTS CURRENT COVID-19 SITUATION IN SWEDEN With the highest daily average reported on Nov. 12, COVID-19 infections in Sweden are currently at 99% of the peak, with an average of 4,625 new infections reported each day. At the time of this article’s publication, there have been 257,934 infections and 6,891 confirmed coronavirus-related deaths reported in the country since the pandemic began (here). The Scandinavian county had 10,352,390 inhabitants as of mid-2020 (here). According to mortality analyses from the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center (here), the case fatality rate in Sweden is 2.6% -- higher than that of neighboring Finland (1.6%), Norway (0.9%) and Denmark (1.0%), as well as the United States (2.0%). As a country, Sweden has had 66.76 COVID-19 deaths per 100,000 people, compared to 7.23 in Finland, 6.28 in Norway, 14.59 in Denmark, and 82.72 in the United States. As shown here by Our World in Data, a scientific publication run by Oxford University researchers, Sweden’s daily COVID-19 deaths per million increased by 1,200% between Aug. 1 and Dec. 1. SWEDEN IS NOT “PROOF THAT LOCKDOWNS ARE USELESS”

      steve aldridgesteve aldridge11 days ago
    • @steve aldridge Now I know this may be difficult but let's look at the facts ie the cumulative totals of deaths and cases:: GB pop. 66 million; 127,000 deaths, 4.37 million cases. That's 1 death per 520 people, 1 case per 15 people. Sweden pop. 10 million; 13,600 deaths, 850,000 cases. That's 1 death per 735 people, 1 case per 12 people. So, destruction of millions of jobs, borrowing untold billions from whoever, other deaths as side-effects, mental health problems etc etc. just to get GB's stats over Sweden's stats? Catastrophe, hospitals overflowing, bodies piling up in the morgues? Which one are you talking about again? And they've now got more herd immunity and lost proportionately less lives . Oh dear, Steve....
