The pointlessness of vaccine passports

“There are many reasons to be alarmed by vaccine passports. The vaccines are safe, effective and have helped us tame the pandemic. But vaccine passports are a different matter. They are a serious assault on liberty. Medical interventions should be based on informed consent, not state coercion — with people told to get jabbed or else lose their freedom to access certain venues. … Vaccine passports risk turning the UK into a ‘papers, please’ society, in which people are forced to declare their medical history in order to go about their business. … But aside from all this, vaccine passports would also be pointless. The arrival of the highly infectious Delta variant has obliterated any public-health case for vaccine passports — particularly the version of vaccine passports now being worked on by the government.” (09/02/21)
