Its not just gigs at the Hydro though. My mum and her cousin go to Strictly Come Dancing there. Plenty of things for the older generation at the Hydro where you can roll up to the box office at the SEC or phone them to book tickets 

Maybe so - but I still am certain that 100% of attendees at Strictly Come Dancing have access to the internet. They'd have bought their tickets on it in the first place

Should be on your medical records with your GP if you don't remember. If not you'll have to use the helpline.

Which will direct him back to the website telling him to access his information by logging in.

Honestly are you on the windup here? 🤣

Strange - even using that and putting in vaccine dates - I still don’t exist!

But that cannot be right because @welshbairn, BJK and a host of other smug b*****ds have told us it all worked simply for them so it must work for everyone. 🤣

Welshy in particular will be along any second telling you to "simply phone the helpline" despite being told multiple times that this will just direct you back to their website. 🤣

There's a fair amount of trolling this morning and they've successfully managed to get a bite out of me. 🤣

The final straw will be that they've fixed the helpline and now people can get through to a human being, leaving me looking like a prize plum.

Just glad I probably won't need the passport anyway.

Two people at work away home, as  someone in their households have tested positive.  Still awaiting the PCR results of course,  but the place will have to shut down if any of my colleagues come back as positive. 

They've done well to beat you out the door.

Multiple people on here have said they had no problem accessing help on the phoneline, it must be your unique charm holding you back.

Ah well there you go then.

If some people can access it then all people must be able to access it.

I hope you're not employed in a job which is important to the safety of other people bud. 🤣

Ehm did you not read the last line of what I said. There is a box office and phone line for tickets. Or there was pre covid

No idea why you were phoning them up when you don't want a passport anyway. It's almost as if you were trying to get it not to work.

Despite what Oaksoft is saying she can do the same for her vaccine certificate. The phoning them up bit I mean. Or you can order it on her behalf online as I did for my Mother.

Jolly bad luck not being able to access vaccine certification, in contrast to the vast, overwhelming majority of experiences shared on here and elsewhere and being a zoomer who reflexively rails against any covid measures at all and particularly those introduced by that bad bad Nicola who i really don't like, isn't it?

BTW I got mine a week before launch by calling the number and then retrieving my username while outside a very noisy pub in Ireland. Where they somehow manage to successfully operate a very similar scheme without any of these fucking infantile hysterics.

Hope this helps.

I registered!

Slight niggle is that it claims I've only had one appointment and that I'm due another on the 29th of this month (news to me), despite me having two already.  Fairly sure that my second dose wasn't a dream*, and no, I didn't get it from some random guy in the street.  FML.

*well, 99.9% sure

I just phoned the number, and they were actually very helpful. 
 

However, you do need to lie and say that you are going on holiday in the next fourteen days or you will be cut off. Given the amount of older people who may be phoning they should really have updated the phone information by now.

30 deaths is never good to see but given we were getting 90 a day back in january with about 1/3rd of the cases it all points to the vaccines oing their job

 

cases seem to be on a downward trend now at least

On a "by specimen date" basis, they have been consistently falling since last Monday.

This is obviously good news, but makes an absolute mockery of the vaccine passport stuff.

another week or so and we'd be expecting hospital numbers to start dropping.

When that happens I wonder how they will spin the need for passports.

They just seem like a waste of time and resources, and will introduce complexity and a barrier which serves absolutely no purpose.
