Sellers are promoting Covid-19 date stamps and badges for sale on Amazon, leading people to falsely claim they had their vaccination.

About 28 million Britons have received their first dose of the shot so far and everyone who has been vaccinated will receive a card with the name, date and batch number of the vaccination they receive.

MaxStamp sells AstraZeneca and Pfizer BioNTech ink presses on Amazon, ranging in price from £ 8.95 for a single stamp to £ 27.99 for a set including a date stamp.

The presses could help British falsify vaccination cards, although MaxStamp claims they were made to help NHS workers speed up the process.

The company also makes customizable medical stamps that include their name and the General Medical Council number.

Shoppers have argued that the sale of the Covid-19 vaccine seals is’ irresponsible ‘, adding,’ It is unbelievable that these could be on sale.

“They could fall into the hands of fraudsters.”

However, many Britons who have received the shot have their Covid-19 vaccination card filled in by hand in clinics.

It comes as Boris Johnson admitted yesterday that vaccine passports ‘could play a role’ in Britain as pub gardens prepare for reopening on April 12.

The prime minister said the outcome of a review of coronavirus health certificates is expected by that date, although it may not be possible to roll them out until everyone has been offered a dose.

He added that it needs to be done carefully, as some people have medical reasons that they can’t prick and there are “ moral complexities ” and “ ethical issues. ”

The stamps are sold online in packs of three – including an AstraZeneca, Pfizer BioNTech and a date stamp – and as individual products.

The description says, “These fit the card perfectly. We can save NHS time, just stamp. ‘

It’s because homeowners and brewers rallied yesterday over plans for vaccine passports for pubs after it was revealed that hangouts are allowed to block customers who can’t prove they’ve had a Covid shot or a negative test.

Mr Johnson previously told parliament landlords they would be empowered to impose strict admission requirements on drinkers – and government sources confirmed this was part of an official review of vaccine passports.

He said: ‘Obviously, we are looking at the issues that come up with vaccination certification – what can you do?

‘Now, in aviation, there are clearly many countries that are thinking about using some sort of vaccine passport, and I think there are three basic components.

There’s the vaccine, there’s your immunity that you could have after you’ve had Covid, and then there’s testing. So there are three things that could work together.

‘No decisions have been made at all. One thing I’ll make clear is that of course this won’t apply on April 12th, when it’s all going to be outside anyway. So whatever happens on April 12 remains unaffected.

‘Everything is being thought about. What we want to do is roll out the vaccine program and see what that builds in terms of overall resistance to the virus. And I think there will be a role for certification.

“What we have said is that we will report on the work of the certification group in early April, either April 5 or April 12.

‘I think we have to think carefully about the problems – as I said before, there are a lot of difficult problems because there are some people who cannot get a vaccination for medical reasons, pregnant women cannot get a vaccination at the moment.

You have to be careful about how you do this, you could perhaps only implement a thorough vaccination passport, even if you wanted something like that, in the context of when absolutely everyone was offered a vaccine. ‘

The British on the ground in Leeds, Birmingham and London also seemed divided, with some referring to passports as ‘the best way to keep infections in check’, while others saying ‘it was unfair for people who hadn’t had their vaccine’ .

Pub bosses across the UK said the idea for pubs was ‘absurd’ and ‘unworkable’ and said they would not ask customers for proof that they had been vaccinated or were free from the coronavirus.

They could even be faced with a choice between being half full with social distance measures, or using vaccine certificates so they can open at full capacity, a government source told the Times.
