It could then be paired up with your fan number and season ticket card so no need to take your pass every game. The club could easily get this up and running by, say, season 2025/26

    Well yeah- that would make perfect sense. If boosters are needed to maintain protection then absolutely the passport should be dependent on being up to date with the boosters.

    And who told you lateral flow tests will stop being free? I can sort of see the purpose of that too: as you say they are less accurate than PCR anyway and the results can be kept private whereas govt would have better visibility of the spread. I'm not surw why it would mean expense for anyone if PCR remains free

    Will that hinder fans who use someone else's fan number to buy a ticket for a game ? ie could we see a few fans refused entry to the Swansea game next week?

    There's at least 11 school aged children on my flight to Mahon now. I wonder how many "have Covid" and are on cheap flights abroad.

    Try walking through the Canton concourse between 1400-1500, absolute Covid factory. And I say that as someone who got Covid there (albeit at a Wales game against Estonia)

    Double vaccination doesn't stop you getting or spreading Covid. Just reduces the risk and impact. Younger, school aged children won't have been vaccinated. Even though it's Saturday, they won't be in school on Monday. One of them, aged about 10, was licking the handrails! Not the most hygienic way to exit the country.

    I know of a valleys' comp of around 1000 pupils and there have been just over 100 who have had Covid in a month.

    I am aware of that , but younger school aged children are not really at risk of the disease ( that’s well known ) my son has had Covid and for him it was a runny nose / mild cold, as it was for me coincidentally.

    I think it’s time to trust the vaccine process and start to move forward , whilst ensuring a decent balanced diet, regular exercise, and maintaining a high level of hygiene.

    The more children who are infected the better it is for the older generation as they create population immunity.

    All of this information is on the ONS website.

    We certainly can't be locked down for ever.

    Just read this unbelievable paragraph:——

    “Large events could also be allowed to check passes at random, rather than check every person who attends.” !!!!

    Shirley this can’t be true ?

    Pick and choose, randomly select, are they taking the pi&&

    Re: Covid passports.

    Anyone trying to get a pass online today? Website seems to be broken.

    Some people on Twitter freaking out as they can't complete online check in to their airlines without the Pass.

    To be fair people have had a good while to sort them out. You’ve needed them to fly for ages so why people hadn’t organised them in advance God knows. You’d sort your passport out if it was out of date and you were going abroad.

    Always have the original printed off seems to be the lesson here. I did print off a couple of copies but the ‘word’ copy comes out on it, not acceptable, it must be the original. I think it’s wise to print everything off and take it with you, travel vouchers, hotel vouchers, transfer vouchers, boarding passes etc. Relying on your ‘phone alone isn’t a wise move.

    What a load of rubbish the whole thing is.

    Are people seriously ok with this? Producing a pass to prove youíve had a voluntary vaccination?

    Really wonder where weíd draw the line as a population, if indeed anywhere

    Re: Covid passports.

    I'd like to share with you my first experience of using my 'Covid Passport'.

    My NHS letter arrived yesterday afternoon, in plenty of time for the sold-out gig at Cardiff University's Great Hall that I attended this evening. Upon arrival at the venue, a steward was walking up and down the queue telling people to have their Covid passports ready for inspection. When I got to the front of the queue, I attempted to show my letter to the female steward who was on my side of the barriers. Without even looking at it, she said: "Yeah, great, get your ticket ready."

    I could have shown her my electricity bill or something I'd randomly printed off the internet for all the difference it made. The steward barely glanced at my letter, which comes as no surprise. After all, I've wandered into a couple of sell-out shows at Cardiff's Tramshed in recent years without even having to show my gig ticket. I'm going there again in a fortnight. I'll be astonished if the door staff give anything more than a cursory glance at my ticket, let alone my Covid letter.
