A letter from the Scottish Chambers of Commerce to the Prime Minister has raised concerns about the impact of the vaccine passport on business.
Earlier this week, Nicola Sturgeon proposed the introduction of vaccine passports for certain events and venues, amid an increase in cowardly cases in recent weeks.
However, Dr Liz Cameron, chief executive of the Scottish Chambers of Commerce, said the prospect of vaccine certification was causing “a lot of stress and anxiety” for businesses. He said: “Scottish businesses are moving beyond their legal requirement to help prevent transmission and keep the Cowed 19 case numbers to a minimum.
“Businesses working in the fields of events, nightclubs and hospitality urgently need to clarify where vaccine certification may be required.
“The Scottish economy is finally recovering, however, the reality is that many businesses are still operating in a survival mode, and economic barriers such as vaccine certificates could potentially be detrimental to business and consumer confidence. Is.”
The proposal will be debated and voted on in parliament next week.
If approved, nightclubs will require proof of vaccination from the end of September, indoor live events without 500+ people, 4000+ non-food outdoor live events, and any event with more than 10,000 people. ۔
As of today, people over the age of 16 can download their vaccine status online through the Vaccine Portal on PDFNHS. Scotland.
The form will include a bar code that can be scanned to enter the event once the vaccine passport is introduced.
