“Logging in, I discovered the app already knew about my first COVID-19 vaccination, listed alongside all my prescriptions going back 15 years – not information I would normally choose to share at border control.
My app then updated itself on May 15. A new “Check your COVID-19 vaccine record” tab had appeared, showing my vaccination information on a screen by itself.
The next app update, on May 18, added yet another tab: “Share your COVID-19 status”. Initially it adds “for travel”, but the new privacy notice that accompanies it tells a different story:

"Lots of us flagged this up earlier.. China already has such a system. Ours will be worse because whereas China mostly uses their system to crush political dissent and punish misdemeanors such as late paying of fines and jaywalking, China does not have a diverse 'woke' society. Our system, our ID, will crush political dissent, punish midemeanors and those expressing wrongthink.
Not only will you not fly or get a train if you have not had the jab and further jabs, but you will also be penalised if you say something bad about Boris and Carrie, or express thoughts contrary to prevailing norms about LGBTQ."
