UK to demand vaccination proof for clubs, big crowd events, Johnson says

Reading Time: < 1 minute

LONDON (Reuters) – British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Monday that he would make proof of double vaccination a condition of entry to nightclubs and other venues where large crowds gathered from the end of September.

“I can serve notice now that by the end of September when all over 18s will have had their chance to be double jabbed, we’re planning to make full vaccination the condition of entry to nightclubs and other venues where large crowds gather,” Johnson said.

“Proof of a negative test will no longer be enough.”
