Unvaccinated Freshers Arriving at University Told to Wear Wristbands so they can be Identified

First year students at Bath are being given wristbands by university authorities to signal whether they’ve been double-jabbed amid anger at emerging “two-tier” university campuses. The Telegraph has more.

Students arriving this week at the University of Bath have been given a different coloured wristband on club nights if they can prove in advance they are double jabbed, or have COVID-19 immunity.

COVID-19 passports are required for nightclub or arena events in Bath students’ union, but those who can only show a negative lateral flow test enter through a different queue.

Parents expressed alarm at “vaccine passports by stealth” as millions of students return for the first Freshers’ Week in two years, despite the Government ditching plans for the certificates for venues in England.

At Sheffield University, students must present a COVID-19 pass to enter freshers events or union nights out, with double-jabbed students and those with negative tests offered separate wristbands to jump queues.

Meanwhile, Cambridge University and two Oxford colleges have asked students to disclose their Covid vaccination status to staff.
