Sky News published this video item, entitled “BREAKING: Wales makes vaccine passports mandatory for nightclubs & large events” – below is their description.

Wales will make a Covid pass mandatory for ‘high-risk’ venues from next month.

First Minister Mark Drakeford said the requirement to show an NHS Covid Pass will come into force from 11 October – it will mean all over-18s will need to have one to enter a football stadium, concert or nightclub.

Mr Drakeford also advised the country to work from home if possible.

  • In This Story: Vaccine Passports

    The concept of vaccine passports was established following the development of vaccinations for Covid-19, in several jurisdictions. While the schemes differ in precise implementations across the globe, those which do operate focus on identifying vaccinated individuals in order to allow them fewer restrictions, for example travel or access to enclosed spaces.

    These schemes are somewhat controversial, as a minority view them as restricting freedoms; or an expression of “nanny state” or big state interference in ordinary lives. Others, those who are against vaccination, feel they are too forceful a pressure upon people to become vaccinated.
