COVID Vaccine Certification Scheme - Amendment

Submitted by: Jackie Baillie, Dumbarton, Scottish Labour.
Date lodged: Wednesday, September 8, 2021

Supported by: Paul Sweeney
Current status: Taken in the Chamber on Thursday, September 9, 2021

As an amendment to motion S6M-01123 in the name of John Swinney (COVID Vaccine Certification Scheme), leave out from “rigorously implemented” to end and insert “effective at containing the spread; notes suggestions that vaccine certification could increase vaccine hesitancy; believes that the approach to improving uptake should be based on persuasion and that, to support the vaccination of young people and harder to reach groups, the government must improve the accessibility of vaccination, with greater use of mobile vaccination clinics and particularly in schools, at events and in areas of low coverage; acknowledges that individuals may still be able to pass on the virus even if fully vaccinated, especially with the transmissibility of the Delta variant, and so considers that proof of a negative test should be more important than vaccination for entry to higher risk locations; notes with concern the declining ability of Test and Protect to carry out effective contact tracing, and calls on the government to prioritise investment in the service so that it has the resources required to contain the virus.”
