If you want to go clubbing from September you’ll need to have had both your jabs. This is what Boris and the government have decided for anyone who wants to go to a nightclub or any sort of event or venue which attracts large-scale crowds. Attendees will be required to have a vaccine passport showing they have been double jabbed. Currently all venues are encouraged to ask attendees if they have been vaccinated now that all restrictions have been released since the 19th July 2021.
But Boris Johnson is concerned by the steady rise in the number of Covid cases, even though the number transforming into hospital admission still remains low. The risk of transmission still remains something the government are keeping an eye on. In doing so the prime minister told a press conference: ‘I don’t want to have to close nightclubs again as they have elsewhere. But it does mean nightclubs need to do the socially responsible thing. ‘As we said last week, we do reserve the right to mandate certification at any point if it’s necessary to reduce transmission. ‘And I should serve notice now that by the end of September, when all over 18s have had their chance to be double jabbed we’re planning to make full vaccination the condition of entry to nightclubs and other venues where large crowds gather.’
Nightclubs up and down the country are branding the move by the government as ‘unfair’, both on the night time economy and society as a whole, saying it will have a massive impact on an already struggling sector. Latest figures show 35 per cent of 18 to 30 year olds in England have not had their first jab.
Have you had both your jabs yet?
Are you even bothered about having your jabs?
Are you one in the population who fiercly don’t want to be vaccinated?
