Part of this new way of life involves events organiser, Ticketmaster, an American ticket sales and distribution company based in Beverly Hills, California, laying out new requirements for fans entering shows to see their favourite artists. Mark Yovich, president of the firm said: “We’re already seeing many third-party health care providers prepare to handle the vetting -- whether that is getting a vaccine, taking a test, or other methods of review and approval - which could then be linked via a digital ticket so everyone entering the event is verified,” speaking to Billboard magazine.
So far, this is only being discussed for the US, but no doubt other countries will most likely have to follow the same procedure as Ticketmaster are a global events organiser.
There really shouldn’t be any reason for this procedure to be in place. People have never been required to provide evidence of their health status to enter a public event, so why now? The obvious reason may be to prevent health care systems from being overwhelmed, however, we know that COVID 19 generally has serious health implications for the eldery or vulnerable and they will be the first to receive the vaccine anyway.
