Full vaccination will be mandatory for entering nightclubs and “crowded venues” in UK from September

People will need to be fully vaccinated to enter nightclubs and “other crowded venues” from September in the UK.

Minister for vaccines Nadhim Zahawi said that a negative Covid-19 test will soon “no longer be sufficient” after everyone is offered a vaccine.

Zahawi is urging businesses across the UK to use the NHS Covid pass for people entering premises.

“We will be keeping a close watch on how it is used by venues and reserve the right to mandate if necessary,” Zahawi said.

“By the end of September everyone aged 18 and over will have the chance to receive full vaccination and the additional two weeks for that protection to really take hold.”

“So at that point we plan to make full vaccination a condition of entry to nightclubs and other venues where large crowds gather. Proof of a negative test will no longer be sufficient,” he continued.

The announcement is hoped to increase the vaccine uptake in young adults, which is significantly lower than other age cohorts.
