UK Cancels Plans for Vaccine Passports

England Health Minister Sajid Javid said on Sunday, September 12, that the country will no longer require vaccine passports for nightclubs and other crowded places.

The previous regulation stated that vaccine proofs would have to be presented in populous establishments to be allowed entry.

Javid told the BBC’s Andrew Marr that the officials have already reviewed the proposal, and while he did not really like the idea, it was reasonable to study the situation first.

Javid said, “We just shouldn’t be doing things for the sake of it or because others are doing, and we should look at every possible intervention properly.”

Marr asked if the decision was based on some locales being criticized, and Javid answered that it was not. The health passes were no longer required because of the country’s high immunization numbers, testing, and new treatments.
