Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that vaccine passports are currently under review in the UK to see if they are necessary to reopen parts of the country. However, the Prime Minister said that vaccine passports for international travel would be coming “whatever” as countries already have plans put in place for infectious diseases like yellow fever. Mr Johnson revealed his lockdown roadmap on Monday as the country is expected to have no legal lockdown restrictions by June 21 at the earliest. 

 

Speaking to Sky News, the Prime Minister was asked whether anything he would exclude anything from a potential vaccination passport rollout. 

He said: “When you look at the international side of things, the international travel, there’s no questions that’s where a lot of countries will be going.

“And they will be insisting on vaccine passports in the same way that people used to insist on evidence that you’ve been inoculated against yellow fever.

“So it’s going to come on the international stage whatever.”
