AN NHS Covid Pass will be needed to access certain locations and events in Wales from Monday.

The Welsh Government has made it mandatory for people attending nightclubs and large events to show an NHS Covid Pass and prove they had been vaccinated or recently tested negative for the virus.

The law was passed in the Senedd on Tuesday following a vote, with 28 members voting in favour and 27 members voting against.

This is when you will need your NHS Covid Pass.

When and where will an NHS Covid Pass be needed in Wales?

The requirement to show an NHS Covid Pass will come into force from October 11.

All over-18s will need to have a NHS Covid Pass to enter:

  • Nightclubs.
  • Indoor, non-seated events for more than 500 people, such as concerts or conventions.
  • Outdoor non-seated events for more than 4,000 people.
  • Any setting or event with more than 10,000 people in attendance.

First minister Mark Drakeford said: “The point of the Covid pass is to allow businesses to stay open.

“If we don’t have this defence and coronavirus numbers rise over the autumn and the winter, then these are the venues which will be the first to be closed.

“So, the purpose of it is not to penalise any business, it’s to give that business an extra defence to allow it to continue to operate.”
