Scottish Government approves controversial Vaccine Passport Scheme

The Scottish Parliament yesterday (9 September 2021) voted in favour of launching a vaccine passport scheme which will require people in Scotland to prove they have been fully vaccinated before they can enter nightclubs and large events.
