The UK government announced this Sunday that it had renounced the project that provided for the introduction of the vaccination certificate to access popular places in England, considering it “superfluous” due to the success of the vaccination campaign against covid-19.

“I never liked the idea of ​​telling people to show papers (…) to do what is just a routine activity. We saw how it should be and although we should keep it in reserve as a potential option, I’m happy to say that we are not going to continue with our project for the vaccination certificate”, British Health Minister Sajid Javid said in statements to the BBC.

The turnaround comes as the British executive this week reiterated its intention to issue a vaccination certificate at the end of September to enter stadiums or clubs, which has drawn strong criticism from the nightlife industry and members of the conservative majority. and the opposition.

Sajid Javid considered that such a measure is not necessary, despite the fact that, in recent days, there has been a high number of daily cases of covid-19, around 40,000, given the high rate of vaccination in the United Kingdom.

Almost 81% of the population over 16 years old received both doses of vaccine against the new coronavirus.

As each UK constituent nation has jurisdiction over the restrictions because of covid-19, Scotland has decided to introduce from 1 October a certificate of vaccination for access to nightclubs and other entertainment venues in order to contain the increase in cases attributed to the beginning of the school year.
