Not so fast: You may or may not have to have papers to booze say UK officials

According to those reports, the government has cautioned that it is not yet fully clear whether or not pubs will be req'd to demand vaccine passports from patrons. That may or may not put a damper on some plans to immediately return to the pubs following the lifting of said lockdown restrictions.
