    I don’t want vaccine passports / certificates but – thinking it through – can’t see an alternative if wanting life to get back to something like normal as soon as possible.

    Currently when people visit countries where there’s dangerous diseases (eg yellow fever) they need a vaccine and proof of having that vaccine. So needing proof of a covid vaccine for International travel is definitely sensible and nothing out of the ordinary.

    …And then there’s those in the caring professions. I believe surgeons need certain vaccines in order to do their work. People in the caring professions – in the NHS, care homes etc – are putting their patients at a far greater risk if not having the vaccine. So imo workers in caring professions should need proof of the jab. Either with a Covid passport or certificate.

    …And then there’s hospitality, the arts and sport etc. Pubs, theatres, fans at sporting events where people come close together. These too are putting their customers at risk if not having the jab… And customers / theatre goers and fans are putting other customers / theatre goers and fans at risk if not having the jab. So imo they should need proof too.

    I am essentially a libertarian and don’t like the thought, but don’t see any alternative.

    I don’t think international travel for the plebs is going to be part of ‘The Great Reset‘.

    I’m just pleased that the psychopaths are back in the love bombing stage at present with us.

    The idea of having to have a vaccine passport for so much as having a pint or buy a loaf of bread is abhorrent!
    Anyone thinking that it’s a good idea is a mug. Covid is just like another strain of flu and something we’ll be able to live with quite comfortably, as we do with the yearly flu now.

    I shall be resisting the jab for as long as possible.

    In practical terms, how does one “resist a jab?”

    Go to a vaccination centre and fight a nurse?

    Reply rudely to texts inviting you to a jab?

    Or something more passive?

    “covid is just like another flu”.

    Might be one day in the future Tank, but no thanks to you. :wacko:

    Flu kills on average around 9,000 people a year in this country.

    Covid has killed 100,000 in its first year… and that’s with restrictions in place.

    Without restrictions it could’ve been a million… or more because without restrictions the NHS would’ve been overwhelmed.

    So covid is not like flu yet.

    Only way we can make Covid be similar to flu is if enough people get vaccinated, but you won’t.

    Great snooker match between Ronnie and Ding with Ronnie throwing the rest on the floor to fire himself up for a last frame shoot-out, it worked. Now…

    Ian, I’m hoping that if I wait long enough it may be that vaccine passports won’t come into law – or maybe just for selected things like going abroad. So my answer is passive.

    Ginge, you’ve been taking too much notice of what the BBC tells you

    Dazza, hope we can get away without the passport nonsense. Don’t know about you, but I’m a bit of a control freak, even about minor things. A major thing like having control of my own body and what gets put into is very important and I’ll not lie down without a fight- A passive one ;-) but as awkward as I can be one :yes:

    I don’t take any notice of the BBC, Tank.
    I take notice of what scientists and the NHS says.

    You take too much notice of fake news. :bye:

    Covid kills elderly and already sick people with one foot in the grave anyway. Plus it seems like a big majority were disabled, and it tends to pick on ethnic minorities as well.

    What chance of someone like myself dying of Covid? I’d say pretty much no chance at all. Ergo, I don’t want to be jabbed and also to have a second jab down the line – And new strains coming along, so more jabs needed to protect from them… so it goes on and on. I’ll stop jabbering on now :bye:

    So what you’re saying is it doesn’t matter if I (a diabetic) dies.

    Well f… you! :negative:

    Not wanting a vaccination that helps protect others is extremely selfish!

    Come on Ginge, I never said that. I was pointing out that I feel in no danger myself or to other people, therefore I won’t have a vaccine unless it becomes impossible to lead a normal life, shopping, travel, getting dental care, etc. If those basic things were blocked to the non-vaccinated, then I would be forced into having it.

    Take care

    You might not be in much danger, Tank. Can’t believe you don’t understand that by not getting a vaccination you’re putting others (including diabetics like me) at a far greater risk.

    Like I said, extremely selfish. :negative:

    Why would anyone not want to help others? :unsure:

    As someone who has spent the best part of the last year in and out of hospital, I have seen first hand just how seriously nurses and doctors take this disease.
    Believe me they all regard the vaccine as the way to get it under control and it doesn’t just kill the old and vulnerable.
    By not accepting the vaccine you will stand a good chance of passing the virus on to other people after catching it without even realising that you have got it.
