United fans can dream of return to Old Trafford; PL close to agreeing health passport with Government

Good news for Manchester United fans that we can start dreaming about returning to Old Trafford.

But it comes with a catch… well, only for those who are anti-vaccine; i.e, Ian Brown of The Stone Roses and second ticket holder at Old Trafford.

New legislation is likely to put in place which will mean football fans must be prepared to take the COVID-19 vaccine.

The UK Government expect the vaccine to be rolled out in the county, with The Guardian suggesting that the roll out could begin in early December.

The prospect of a vaccine solution to the coronavirus crisis continues to move closer with Pfizer’s announcement on Monday, as reported by the New York Times.

It comes on the back of encouraging early results from phase-three trials of its vaccine.

On top of that, the Premier League has acted quickly by getting to a stage where they are close to agreeing a blueprint with the Government to add COVID-19 vaccine records to a digital health passport which may fast-track the return of crowds in 2021, according to The Telegraph.

No specific dates have been given but this means all fans who plan to attend games in the future will need to seek the vaccine.
