British authorities are discussing the possibility of introducing “COVID passports” for those who have been vaccinated against the new type of coronavirus. This was reported by The Sunday Times, citing its sources in the kingdom's government.

According to the newspaper, such a measure will allow the holders of the new document to move around the country more freely, including to make business trips, than those who refuse vaccination.

At the same time, according to the newspaper, at the end of December, the government will still allow the British to gather in small companies to celebrate Christmas, but then the strict measures will be returned and will continue to operate until the beginning of spring when mass vaccination of residents becomes possible.
