Is it compulsory to go into a nightclub? I'm getting a bit old for that.

Looking forward to it already. 

 

01/10/ 2021 - Covid Passport Day.  I've got my little bit of paper with the two vaccination dates, vaccine batch numbers & signatures, backed up with similar info on my mobile. 

 

See you down the pub with like minded individuals - or maybe not.  I'll have yours.

Nightclubs are my idea of hell so this doesn't bother me at all. 

 

Just as long as they don't do the same for pubs.

For once I agree with you. Well of course the jabs are not actually compulsory (yet?) but to say you need to have been double jabbed to enter a nightclub from 3 months hence with no ifs or buts and no mention of a sunset clause is wrong.

There will also be lots of other people with bits of paper showing dates etc, looking every bit as genuine of yours, also in the pub with you.  You'll have the satisfaction of knowing you didn't pay for yours!

 

A posting on this site from a month or so ago quoted border staff stopping the occasional obvious forgery for the European Covid Certificates, but expecting that they missed most as they didn't have the staff to check them all.

I think it’s not unreasonable to reserve the right to insist on double vaccination, if that’s the only way to keep the nighttime economy open.  But, such compulsion should only be within very strict parameters of infection rates and for a very limited time frame.


As a general rule, compulsion is a bad way to carry out a public health policy. Encouragement is the way. The state can’t tell people which treatments they must take. That’s absolutely unconscionable.

 

I don’t believe a word that Johnson says anyway.I suspect that this is just a device to nudge hesitant young people into getting their second jab. Imagine how it would work in practice. Or, rather, how it wouldn’t work.

Clubs definitely,  Boris said you won't for pubs. So pubs in few weeks presumably.

 

In other news, the percentage of people going into hospital with covid who have both jabs is 60%. That question was asked by David from Wiltshire rather than the press corps.

Stand by, vallance has misspoke. 

 

"Correcting a statistic I gave at the press conference today, 19 July. About 60% of hospitalisations from covid are not from double vaccinated people, rather 60% of hospitalisations from covid are currently from unvaccinated people."

That's the attitude- I don't use nightclubs therefore I'm fine with everyone who does use them being subject to compulsory injections.

 

I don't use nightclubs either, but I still object to nightclubbers civil liberties being damaged.

 

What are you planning to do if/when they make it compulsory for pubs?- cos if you were planning to object you'd maybe regret not tackling it at the start of the slippery slope.

 

Given that it's now compulsory for care home workers with a high liklihood of all healthcare staff next, plus now, nightclubbers, I wouldn't be feeling too smug about pubs escaping.

I'm guessing the thought of night club turning you away because of what a bouncer thinks of your dress sense must twist your melon.
