COVID-19 Recovery Committee


Vaccination certification

The Committee is looking at the Scottish Government’s proposals to introduce a mandatory COVID vaccination certification scheme in Scotland.

The vaccine certification scheme requires people to show proof that they have been fully vaccinated (or are otherwise exempt) to get into certain late-night premises and large-scale events.

To introduce such a scheme, the Scottish Government must bring forward regulations which the Committee and Parliament will have to approve.

  • 9 September 2021 - the Scottish Government published further details of its proposals and information on how the scheme would operate.
  • 9 September 2021 - the Parliament debated this issue in the Chamber and agreed to the introduction of the scheme.
  • 23 September 2021 - the Scottish Government published a further update on its plans for introducing a COVID-19 vaccine certification scheme. 

Evidence
