Majority of the British public support a vaccine passport that would allow inoculated individuals to return to a more normal life, according to a report.

  • Data from data analytics firm YouGov show that 65% of British public support a document to allow vaccinated individuals to return to workplaces and leisure establishments ahead of those who have yet to receive shots.
  • Some 76% support the immediate requirement of proof of vaccination for those entering the United Kingdom, backed across the political spectrum. Some 16% opposed the idea.
  • The U.K. government is reviewing the idea of requiring proof of vaccine for certain activities following the lead of Israel and other countries with ongoing vaccination drives.
  • The World Health Organization opposes the idea partly due to uncertainties on whether vaccinated individuals can spread the infection.
