Residents of the UK who have been vaccinated against the coronavirus will receive a card confirming that they have been vaccinated.
Britain’s NHS unveiled its model on Monday. As per the NHS recommendation, you should carry the card with you at all times.
The person’s name, name, vaccine batch and date of vaccination will be written on the card the size of the card.
On the other side of the card there is a reminder to carry it with you – but this is only a recommendation, not an order.
A week ago, a British minister suggested that pubs, restaurants and cinemas could be given powers not to serve customers who had not been vaccinated against the coronavirus.
Nadim al-Zahawi, the minister responsible for introducing vaccines, also wants football stadiums to ask customers for proof of vaccination.
The minister said that although vaccination will not be compulsory, officials are trying to enter so-called “immunity passports” to check if anyone has been vaccinated.
Also Monday morning, Deputy Secretary of State James Cleverly did not deny that such cards could be used to enable a return to a more normal life. The idea is to make sure of a massive return. It’s about opening people’s lives and reopening the economy.
The vaccination against Covid-19 began in the UK this morning.
It is the first country in the world to use the vaccine developed by Pfizer and BioNTech.
The first person in the UK to receive a coronavirus vaccine was 90-year-old Margaret Keenan, who has lived in Coventry for sixty years but comes from Enniskillen, Northern Ireland.
Nurse May Parsons gave the injection at the University Hospital in Coventry at 6.31 am.
