Covid vaccine passports SCRAPPED - Sajid Javid confirms people won’t need them...
...to get into nightclubs and cinemas.
The Health Secretary revealed this morning that Covid jab passports won't be introduced as a measure to fight the virus as we enter the winter months.
He told the BBC today: "I am pleased to say that we will not be going ahead with plans for vaccine passports."
The Health Secretary said it was "absolutely right" of the Government to have looked into it, and that the idea will be "kept in the reserves" rather than implemented.
Javid added that he "instinctively does not like the idea of people having to show passports to do basic things."
Just days ago, the Health Sec refused to rule out vaccine passports for pubs, clubs and restaurants — but denied there would be a firebreak lockdown in October.
And on Friday Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden hinted that they would be "further extending" the use of Covid ID beyond just nightclubs and large indoor venues.
But now in a dramatic U-turn, the Health Secretary confirmed that Covid certification won't be in the Government's armour as we battle the virus in the winter.
