Tassie wants vaccine passports


THE majority of Tasmanian businesses want vaccine passports introduced, a Tasmanian Chamber of Commerce & Industry (TCCI) survey shows.

Before the borders to New South Wales and Victoria are reopened, almost two-thirds of TCCI’s members (61.7%) said they would support a vaccine passport that would confirm visitors to the state were fully vaccinated.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison publicly backed the idea last week, despite resistance from some of his own party’s Members of Parliament, and Tasmanian Senator Eric Abetz, who has raised concerns about potential civil liberties infringeme­nts.
