The minute the virus escaped into the wild the whole world was on the back foot.
To my way of thinking... we are basically in the thick of a battle trying to get a handle on its spread and reducing it's impact.
Three immediate global impacts (leaving aside economics) and these have never altered from day 1:-
1. potential deaths
2. potential long term damage to health
3. overwhelming of hospital and health systems if virus not stopped or brought under control in some way
The vaccine passport is just another tool in the battle to regain some sort of control over all three of the above.
It really is a simple as that.
If we need a covid vaccine passport to travel abroad etc., so be it
We didn't renew it as don't see we are likely to need it this year but a question on our annual travel insurance renewal was have you been vaccinated for cvOf course you may also have had problems getting health insurance. Just a thought. I could be wrong but maybe thats why they are doing it.
Nothing is proved as yet of course, but it would seem logical that If a vaccinated person is better at fighting the virus than if they were unvaccinated then the multiplication within their body would not occur and therefore they would be less likely to pass it on. Maybe another reason some countries may require a vaccine passport in time.
Isn't that still a conspiracy theory? You gone to the dark side
Will get passport if I have to, chances are it's going to happen. Won't be happy and will always use whatever tools are legal to get it dumped. Not that that matters if its a requirement to enter another country, I'll just hope it gets kicked out of other countries too. I smell a revolt.
I don't think comparing this to the vaccines and proof of that are needed currently are in any way comparable, stands up to no scrutiny whatsoever.
Need a lot more info regarding all this though.
My suspicion is that this is all about you not becoming a drain on the health service of the country you enter, should you get CV.
I noticed they use your National Insurance number to record You having the Vaccine so would be easily to check your having had it
The young have given up there freedom to protect the elderly and all they can think about is swanning off on holiday. I'm not sure who protected those who died in care homes or who is protecting the 7.1million 16 to 64 year olds who are considered vulnerable, many because they are obese and have type 2 diabetes.
