Former British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, has called for people vaccinated against coronavirus to be allowed greater freedom than the un-vaccinated both in the UK and when traveling abroad.
The former prime minister said discriminating between the two would mean fewer restrictions both at home and abroad and provide “a powerful incentive” to get a jab.
He also criticised the current NHS app that proves vaccination status as “inadequate”, as he promoted a report published by the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change.
Mr Blair said: “It is time to distinguish for the purposes of freedom from restriction between the vaccinated and unvaccinated, both for citizens here for domestic purposes; but also for our citizens and those from other countries in respect of travel on the basis that being vaccinated substantially reduces risk.
“It therefore makes no sense at all to treat those who have had vaccination as the same as those who haven’t.”
