Proof of full vaccination to enter Northampton restaurants would help business. I would be more willing to sit in a restaurant knowing that everyone has been vaccinated.

Of course, vaccination is not 100% protection from COVID-19. However, requiring vaccinations would decrease the risk and fear, and it would encourage more of us to once again support indoor dining.

I think the feared “burden” or extra work the vaccination passport plan would place on businesses would be easily offset by the increase in business due to people feeling safer to enter indoor business establishments where masks come off.
