British youngsters are completely upset at the imposition of vaccinations for young people who want to continue to go to clubs or discos in September. Although the catering industry is furious, scientists and judges support the criticism.
Boris Johnson, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, announced his surprise announcement. His ministers Nadhim Zahawi and Michael Gove had previously denied any plans to create a “vaccine passport”.
It is chaotic in the nightlife. “A week ago, the health minister told us that vaccines would not be mandatory,” said Michael Kill, director of the Night Time Industries Association. “What a mess!”
Kill doesn’t understand: “The government’s own report on vaccine passports showed they did more good than harm – so how can this be explained?” British media like the Daily Mail also wonder where the U-turn From.
Scientists and judges now support the criticism. The measure was rejected by Lord Sumption, a former Supreme Court judge. Director Prof. Carl Heneghan from the Center for Evidence-Based Medicine at Oxford University responded to the tweet cynically. Professor Sir Jonathan Montgomery who presided over the NHSX ethics commission on contact tracing warned of the day when “incitement meets coercion”.
“Do the government really think this treatment will win over those who are skeptical about the vaccine?” fulminates Peter Marks, CEO of nightclub REKOM UK.
OMT in the Netherlands believes that vaccines are not always effective against infection. It sometimes requests a test from people who have been vaccinated. The British, however, remain committed to being’safe with a vaccination’. What’s strange is that until then the clubs will open all the way – to everyone.
“How can it be safe to go to a nightclub now, without any measures, and in September you will need a double vaccination status?” asks Labor politician Justin Madders. It doesn’t make sense.
