Vaccine passports required in Scotland for entry to large venues from 1 October
Written by Hit Music Radio News on 09/09/2021
Scotland’s parliament has voted to introduce vaccine passports for entry to venues with large crowds from 1 October.
COVID-19 certification will be required to enter events such as nightclubs, music festivals and some football grounds.
MSPs in Holyrood voted by 68 to 55 in favour of a vaccine passport scheme a week after Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced she was intending to introduce the scheme.
Staff at venues will be able to download a verifier app from next week, ahead of the launch, to allow digital checks on the vaccine status of attendees.
