WHAT on earth are those people who are objecting to the use of vaccination passports suggesting?

If I am in a pub or a crowded restaurant, am I not entitled to be amongst people who I know to have been vaccinated against this terrible disease, and are therefore less likely to pass the virus on to me?

I think that being forced to mix with people who are unwilling to disclose whether they have been vaccinated or not is a gross infringement of my human rights.

When those anti-vaccination crusaders catch this awful disease, their silly opinions will disappear like snow before the summer rain.

I speak from experience and would not wish this awful illness on anybody. If we all had vaccination passports, it would make the lives of those who have been personally affected by the consequences of this disease able to enjoy normal social intercourse when the lockdowns are finally ended, knowing that they are safe and in the company of other similar-minded responsible individuals.
