It was learnt the UK Government has disclosed that the vaccine certificates are set to become a requirement to enter nightclubs and other large indoor venues in England from the end of September.

Observers have reasoned this imminent move heralds a permanent shift in the way entertainment and hospitality businesses operate in the country.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson reportedly said that some of “life’s pleasures” will be “increasingly dependent on vaccination.”

A vaccine passport has been described as “an easily accessible and verifiable certification that a person’s been inoculated” against COVID-19.

ConsumerConnect had reported that a considerable number of governments, business firms, and organisations few months back already started considering the possibility of making COVID-19 Vaccine shots mandatory for people who want to get on airplanes, cruise ships, or attend events.

In view of the this development, some political and business leaders have suggested that countries’ application of this measure could help to get life back to normal by rolling out vaccine passports for consumers.

The latest idea of vaccine passports or certificates evolves, especially in the developed economies, because the damaging Coronavirus spreads unchecked without appropriate vaccinations for peoples in many lands.

Consequently, the disease is said to have developed dangerous mutations in several communities, countries and regions of the world, including the festering Delta variant.
