Britons are ready to accept domestic coronavirus vaccine passports, and even to keep them once the pandemic has abated, exclusive polling for The Independent suggests.

More than half – 56 per cent – of people surveyed by Savanta ComRes said it would be acceptable to make shoppers show a pass before entering a store, while 32 per cent said it would not.

Retailers believe such a scheme would be unhelpful, coming after more than a year of disruption to their bottom lines.

Non-essential businesses are now gearing up for reopening in England tomorrow, with the public urged to respect retail workers and Covid-19 safety measures.
