LETTER: Let’s lead the way on jab passports

A reader discusses vaccine passports.


The quicker digital vaccine passport becomes available trade, holidays and more importantly, jobs will be saved.

Other countries are launching vaccine passports capable of tracking an individual's corona virus status wherever they are in the world they are including details of vaccines and test results. Health and safety laws also say you have to protect people at work, and when it comes to protecting other people the argument grows stronger.

There is clear evidence that vaccines prevent the transmission the obvious next step is to get more and more people to take the vaccine jab. Even a jab for a job is a serious option to protect others.

Once the virus vaccine becomes widely available many countries, transport and travel.companies may require all travellers and passengers to use a vaccine passport.

If the UK wishes to be a world leader and trade across the globe and vital local facilities such as Birmingham Airport are to flourish, a vaccine passport would help to encourage the safe reopening of borders and the essential economic recovery we all need.

Let's be at the forefront of a digital vaccine passport mobilisation as we have been with the roll out of of safe vaccines. It is an inevitable task before other countries again decide our future for us.
