Vaccine passports are not a silver bullet, say experts

Nicola Sturgeon’s vaccine passports will significantly infringe human rights but provide only “a very small contribution” to public health, legal experts say.

The certification scheme to allow fully vaccinated people in to nightclubs and big sporting events will intrude upon the rights to family and private life, culture, as well as freedom of thought, conscience and religion, Judith Robertson, chairwoman of the Scottish Human Rights Commission, told MSPs.

She said that the plan had been railroaded through parliament without proper scrutiny or consultation with the deprived and minority ethnic communities who will be most affected.
