People in Wales will have to provide evidence that they have had two doses of Covid-19 vaccine before entering large-scale events and nightclubs, the local government announced Friday.

The pass, dubbed vaccine passport, will be asked from next month before entering clubs, no-seating indoor events with more than 500 people and outdoor no-seating events to be attended over 4,000 people.

- The last thing we want is further lockdowns and for businesses to have to close their doors once again - First Minister Mark Drakeford told a news conference.

- That's why we must take small but meaningful action now to control the spread of the virus and reduce the need for tougher measures later.-

Drakeford added that "coronavirus cases have risen to very high levels over the summer as more people have been gathering and meeting."

- Tragically, more people are dying from this terrible virus.-

The requirement to produce a vaccine pass before entering such events will come into force on Oct. 11.
