VACCINE PASSPORT PLAN A GO, JOHNSON SAYS

Despite a lack of confidence from the U.K. live-music industry about plans for mandatory vaccine passports, the government has said it intends to press on with its plan for late September.

The idea that nightclubs, gigs and indoor events should require attendees to provide proof of vaccination was first raised by U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson back in July. Since then, it’s been a source of contention in the industry, with many favoring the three-tier choice of vaccination, antibody proof or a negative test.

Despite this, a new statement from Johnson’s spokesperson has said there is “no change” in his position and that details of the new rule will be announced in the coming weeks, according to a story in The i.

There is still another hurdle to clear, however, before the plan is put into place; the proposal will require a vote in the House of Commons. With many MPs also opposing it, there’s still a chance Johnson may have to admit defeat.
