Tech Entrepreneur Claims Vaccine Passport Could Let Brits Back Into Pubs

Tech Entrepreneur Claims Vaccine Passport Could Let Brits Back Into Pubs

A tech expert has said that he's speaking to the government about a health passport, which could allow those who've been vaccinated to return to more of a normal life.

Louis-James Davis, 32, owns VST Enterprises, which is based in Manchester. Davis claims to have been speaking to the Department of Health about a scanner which is accessed via a smartphone app.

The Mirror reports that the scanner is 'unhackable' and 'tamper proof' meaning that all details would be safe.

The scanner could be used from three metres away.

It would then feature a bar code - or VCode - that can be scanned, meaning pub workers and others in private destinations, can see if someone has had a vaccine and would be give the date and results of all Covid tests.

Speaking to The Sun, Mr Davis said: "It's not yet clear what restrictions will be in place later in the year but the VCode would be able to handle any of them.

"Organisers would be confident about letting you into an event and you would feel safe, knowing the others around were also in the low-risk category."

Although the government were initially optimistic that antibody tests were a way to reopen the economy, it was then discovered that there was uncertainty around whether the virus could be caught again.

But the vaccine passport could offer another option. The Government has maintained that they wouldn't be compulsory to gain access to things like education and health care.

But it could be that they are used at some point to access non-essential services like hospitality and live music.

Vaccines minister Nadhim Zahawi said previously: "I think you'll probably find that restaurants and bars and cinemas and other venues, sports venues, will probably also use that system."

In November SAGE said: "Immunity certification is theoretically possible, however further data and considerations are needed before any recommendation can be made."
