PLANS to introduce Covid vaccine passports have been SCRAPPED as Sajid Javid confirms people won’t need them to get into nightclubs and cinemas.

The Health Secretary confirmed this morning that vaccine passports won’t be introduced as a measure to fight the virus as we enter the colder months.

Sajid Javid confirmed that vaccine passports won’t be introduced in the UK

He told the BBC today: “I am pleased to say that we will not be going ahead with plans for vaccine passports.”

This comes as he confirmed that PRC tests for double-vaccinated Brit holidaymakers will be scrapped “as soon as possible.”

The Health Secretary revealed he’s already asked officials to get rid of travel testing rules, as they shouldn’t be in place for a second longer than “absolutely necessary.”

Mr Javid said this morning he personally wants to get rid of PCR tests for travel “as soon as I possibly can”.

The Health Secretary told Sky News’s Trevor Phillips On Sunday: “I’m not going to make that decision right now.


“But I’ve already asked the officials that the moment we can, let’s get rid of these kinds of intrusions.

“The cost that generates for families, particularly families just trying to go out and holiday, you know we shouldn’t be keeping anything like that in place for a second longer than is absolutely necessary.”
