Sounds like it's only a few hours away from being introduced.

I know we had a thread on this at the start of the rollout of jabs and views were mixed, but seeing as it's being widely reported that it'll be announced today, what are the thoughts now?

Maybe move it to the politics forum.

I don't have a problem with the passports myself, but understand how some would.

Certainly going to make the logistics of it all more complicated.

Hope the club already have plans in place.

I won't be attending for other reasons but wouldn't have a problem with it. Just need to allow a bit more time for getting in and have your passport at hand.

Happy for it to come in as COVID numbers are ramping back up and anything to help the NHS is welcome IMHO.

Hoping City / Bears have plans in place for organising it and how the logistics will impact upon match days. Can see it being a mare tbh!

Once again, the MODS of this forum being as in touch as the Tories.

Doesn't matter WHO introduces Plan B, but rather the impact on those who go to games and how they might decide not to bother, will get there earlier, will use or won't use public transport.

So I maintain football chat is still the right place for this!

Agree.  Could have a good guess who’s done it as well.  Annoying that they do it tbh but it’s their ball I guess.

Given Omicron is predicted to be the predominant covid variant by Christmas/New Year, and as yet there is no evidence that the first two-dose vaccine has a significant impact against it, it feels like another ill-thought out policy. Most likely being introduced to distract us from other matters (can't think what...)

Someone just now on the radio said they appear to have confirmed that 2 jabs is not enough but the booster will be

I agree with this, it’s a different topic to the general one

Go on because it wasn’t me if that’s what you’re suggesting 

Not suggesting that at all? Not sure why the passive aggressive answer?
At a guess it would be Phantom. He used to move anything COVID related back in the day from the main forum, even when I and many others thought it a very relative discussion to football.
As I said though it’s you and the other moderators ball and you can do what you want with it.

Yes it was me because as always the topic will go off on a tangent, as always these threads are already going off topic.

I saw earlier data showing there are 331 cases of known Omicron  in the EU, with no known hospitalisations as of yesterday. There are presumably an unknown number of further cases where someone is either asymptomatic, refused to be tested or has not been identified as having Omicron. 

It's way too early to say that means Omicron is milder, or that it won't cause hospitalisations in the future. However it also surely suggests the vaccines are doing something? Agree it is an ill-thought out policy but an absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. The likelihood is vaccines have an impact. We just don't know how much yet.
