Use of Covid certs could be extended
The use of Covid vaccine passports should be extended beyond next Friday, according to a leading infectious diseases consultant.
They’re due to be abolished on October 22nd, when nightclubs are due to reopen.
But the government will make a final decision on Tuesday about whether to change the plan, due to the worsening Covid situation.
Professor Cliona Ni Cheallaigh, from St James’s Hospital in Dublin, believes the use of vaccine passports should continue.
“I think vaccine passports are a good idea.
“We know that covid likes to spread in indoor spaces when people are unmasked.
“I personally wouldn’t be comfortable eating in an indoor environment if I didn’t know everyone else was vaccinated.
“I think that’s a very sensible idea as the very vast majority of the adult population are vaccinated, it just adds that extra layer of safety knowing that there won’t be somebody vaccinated in that indoor environment.”
