Vaccine Passports

Hard to understand this but eventhough we hold more than 4000 but under 10000 as we do have seats it therefore does not apply to us ?
If so seems bit pointless as in theory you could have loads of unvaccinated people standing on ET.
Hope club/EFL will clarify but if are needed could be fun get through the turnstile and stewards checking them etc.

No-one needs to freak out about the vaccine passport. We've had it here in Canada for months now and it works like a dream. No different than showing someone ID when getting into an age-restricted establishment.

People will whinge and moan and say that it's an invasion of privacy, the beginning of a police state, or push whatever other ludicrous totalitarian conspiracy theory they have about the situation. The reality is that it just helps the people who are vaccinated live their life safely, while the people who don't give a fuck about anyone else around them have a legitimate reason to not get vaccinated have to stay at home.

They've been here for months too, it's just they are compulsory now. I went to some festivals in the summer and a few gigs since and they've all asked for it. Takes 15 minutes to set up, it really isn't an issue, and anything to nudge people to get jabbed is a good thing.

Went to a gig last week where it was "compulsory", but I know they weren't checking properly because I didn't even get past the DAMN NHS APP LOGIN SCREEN before they waved me through.

Ireland's Covid app is MUCH better.

What does it actually do? Because anyone in there could have the virus and be spreading it.

It reduces your likelihood of catching it, so fewer asymptomatic infectious carriers should be around me it also reduces your viral load, so if you've got it you exhale a bit less virus, further reducing the likelihood of you passing it to me when standing next to me.

It won't stop anyone who is asymptomatic from entering, that's true, and they can still give it to me, and me to my elderly parents, but science 101 it does reduce the speed of spread.

It also reassures me that those around me care about others, including me. Which is nice.

And its not exactly a big sacrifice, or a chore. I'm not asking anyone to amputate a limb before they come to football.

I fully accept its a personal choice and should remain so. But every lever should be applied to increase uptake as it means when my dad needs his cancer op, there's more likely to be a doctor free and an intensive care bed available for him post-op.

You'd also like to think people were doing lateral flow tests before going to stuff like football, even though it's not compulsory. Judging by how we're playing at the moment, you'd almost be hoping for a positive result to get out of watching...

It slows the spread of transmission, which is all you can hope for sometimes.

Of course, there are always those who will rely on others to do what it takes to reopen society so they don't have to.

But that’s only if people are actually honest and have done tests(if they’re not double jabbed) it takes two seconds to fake a message that people use instead of the app.

And some people do that in France and elsewhere too. Show a screenshot from someone else's passport or negative test, job done.

There will always be clever cunts.

As per other messages, it reduces the risk, it doesn't eliminate it if you are going to get bellends doing that. But having the passport and most people being sensible, reduces the risk

Doesn't prevent an outbreak but reduces the potential size and severity of an outbreak. Mostly though it allows a government to effectively make vaccination mandatory without having to actually do that, whilst passing the cost on to business and individuals.

Not clear either whether it is capacity or actual attendance which will be used - the latter would only work if going advance sales only.

Plus if needed at Lamex or a like may need one to get into ground but not in to bars or a mask where it could be more crowded.
Each to their own but I actually agree with some of the restrictions but have to be consistent .

The idea that 9,999 people indoors with no requirement for ventilation are at less risk from an airborne infection than 4,000 people at an outdoor event as long as they are sitting down is just fucking mental, nonsense so unscientific as to be corporate manslaughter.

As the club won't pay for adequate stewarding either people will be left outside the ground at KO or enforcement will be so lax as to make the entire exercise pointless.

Reminds me of shows I've been to that had airport style security from G4S until it had taken them 90 minutes to get through 10% of attendees and then they just let everyone walk through.
