What do you think about having to have a passport (to enter crowded venues) to prove that you have been vaccinated.

It's now the law in Scotland and it'll probably happen in England too.

I don't personally have a problem with this apart from the fact that I already have proof on my NHS app.

The only thing I have a problem is is that it wont stop the spread of the virus because you can still get it and pass it on whether you have photo ID or not.

My bf went to a football game today (he's in Scotland) he was asked to provide his passport but before he had got it out of his pocket the person checking had moved on to the next person.

So there's not much point in this unless those who are being paid to support the new law are themselves bothered about it.

It is a good way to make sure that people have been vaccinated.

It just bothers me that a passport won't stop the spread of the virus in large venues.

Yes, despite ongoing protests all across the country.

Just a year ago the idea of Vaccine Passports was a crazy conspiracy theory.

In Florida, A New Surgeon General Appointed For
His Anti-Vaccine-Mask-Mandate Philosophies
And Faux News Covid-19, So-Called Treatments,

Was Asked By A Senator of the State Legislature,

Who is Currently Suffering From Cancer, to Wear

A Mask in A Meeting in an Enclosed Space; So,

The New Surgeon General Refused and

Instead, Directed the Meeting be

And Then She

Kicked Him Out of the Office...

Thankfully, this Ignorance May Not

Maybe not, but it will ensure that in all likelihood, the people in the venue care about doing their part to stop the spread of the virus, and should at least reduce the odds of it spreading. Being vaccinated doesn't mean someone can't get it, but it significantly lowers the chances. Also, people who are vaccinated are far more likely to comply with mask mandates and other such regulations, or just do those things of their own accord.

Besides, getting a vaccine is easier than ever where I live, so if people really want to go to those places, they can just get a couple. If they're that determined not to do their part for society, they can deal with the consequences. I know people who don't want a vaccine, but don't go out other than to work or buy groceries, among other things. They're fine with that, and I respect that. It's the crazies who want to have their cake and eat it too who are a problem. It seems likely that crowd is going to have more and more problems as time goes on, and it's 100% their fault if that ends up being the case. Oh well, it's a non-issue for me, so it's not my problem. I have my vaccines. :lol:

I support venues being able to mandate proof of vaccine status or exemption and/or a recent negative test.

I don’t support the government making such things mandatory.

I believe in free association. Businesses can decide who they do or don’t do business with, but the government shouldn’t force people to carry any form of identification or disclose medical information. (Of course, sometimes the government needs to prioritise the safety of its employees over the needs of business users, so I can support requiring certain things for use of public transport or school attendance… but that’s a very delicate balancing act.)
