Two jabs required to enter the nightclub from September

The government says that people attending nightclubs and other places in the UK, which are crowded with people, will need to be fully vaccinated from the end of September.

According to the latest figures, 35% of 18-30 year olds do not have the first jab.

Currently, in nightclubs and other crowded areas, it is only recommended to ask the clubber to show evidence of vaccination, negative test results, or immunity.

However, Boris Johnson said he was concerned that the risk of infection would continue.

The announcement was made on the day the British nightclub was allowed to reopen after a 16-month closure.

“There is no need to close the nightclub again like elsewhere, but that means the nightclub needs to fulfill its social responsibilities,” the Prime Minister said at a press conference on Monday.

“As I mentioned last week, we reserve the right to require certification whenever we need to reduce infections.

“And by the end of September, when people over the age of 18 had a chance to be double-jabed, they plan to get a full vaccination on condition of admission to nightclubs and other crowded places. Please note. “

Chief Scientific Advisor Serpatrick Valence said nightclubs and other such locations could be “potential superspreader events” due to the close contact of the crowd. ..

“With the opening of nightclubs, we expect the number of cases to continue to increase, and we will see outbreaks associated with certain nightclubs,” he said.

Nightclubs also reopened in Northern Ireland and Wales on Monday, but are still closed in Scotland.

The Welsh government never mandates the use of vaccination certificates, but said businesses are free to request vaccination certificates.

Across the UK, 39,950 cases were recorded on Monday, with an additional 19 deaths within 28 days of the positive test.

Snorting, singing, and screaming in a tightly packed, relatively poorly ventilated space creates the ideal conditions for the spread of the virus carried while spitting.

Many nightclubs were closed during the pandemic, and the industry responded angry to the Prime Minister’s announcement.

“So the nightclub’Free Day’lasted about 17 hours,” said Michael Kill, boss of the Nighttime Industry Association.

“Aside from the fact that this is yet another chaotic U-turn, nightclubs planning to reopen for a few months need to make further changes to how they operate. This is still a bad idea.

“80% of nightclubs say they don’t want to implement a Covid passport, not only worried about the difficulty of implementing the system and the voluntary decline in consumers, but also competing in non-target pubs and bars. It suffers from the above disadvantages. It provides a similar environment with the same restrictions. “

“Forced vaccination”

British hospitality boss Kate Nicholls called the announcement a “hammer blow” for the struggling industry trying to rebuild.

“Covid passports will not only risk creating flashpoints between staff and customers, but will also be a costly burden that creates potential problems with equality law and the processing of customer data,” she said. I did.

Mark Harper MP, chair of the Conservative backbencher Covid Recovery Group, also criticized the plan, saying the government was “virtually moving to compulsory vaccination.”

Vaccine Minister Nadhim Zahawi MP has promised to share evidence with the Commons “in collaboration with the nightclub industry and large endangered events taking place indoors.”
