The controversial policy would see only those who have been vaccinated being admitted into venues such as pubs, bars, restaurants and cinemas. Those who are unvaccinated, the majority of whom at present are under the age of 50, would still be restricted by the current lockdown regulations. Proponents of the plan say it would reinvigorate the UK’s economy and help Brexit Britain thrive in a post-Covid world.

However, many members of Mr Johnson’s own party and many members of the public are divided on the issue.

Many Britons see it as an attack on civil liberties and data privacy.

In today’s poll just over half of those who responded voted in favour of having a vaccine passport, for a time-limited period.

When asked if they supported a Covid vaccine passport, 52 percent of those who took part voted in favour of it.

Those who voted ‘No’ made up just under half of those who took part, coming in at 48 percent.

There was an option on the poll to vote, ‘don’t know’, but the number of those who opted for this were so low that they did not register as a percentage.

In figures the amount of ‘Yes’ votes came in at 6,974, ‘No’ votes at 5,753 and those who said ‘don’t know’ totalled 124 people.

The total amount of people who voted in the poll amounted to 12,851.

The poll began on April 3 at 7.30 am and concluded at 8pm on the same evening.

One reader supported the idea saying: “You can moan all you like, if you want to travel, go to the pub, go to the restaurant, then you’ll have to have it.

“Your choice, don’t have it, but stay at home and be miserable whilst the rest of us get back to some normality.”

Another doubted the time-limit aspect of the plan, saying: “This is the thin end of the wedge and if you believe it will be time-limited there is a bridge between Scotland and Northern Ireland I would like to sell you.”

One reader came up with a compromise to suit both camps: “Easy.

“We have designated pubs and restaurants for those who don’t want to be vaccinated, and others for those who do.

“I’m sure the pub landlords and restaurant owners and all their staff would agree?

“I mean, if Covid 19 is so harmless as some anti-vaxxers and Covidiots are claiming, what could possibly go wrong?”
