Ticketmaster will require people to be vaccinated to buy tickets for events

Ticketmaster could allow venues to ask people to prove they’ve had the coronavirus vaccine to get into sports events and concerts.

Drug company Pfizer announced earlier this week that early data shows their vaccine is 90 per cent effective raising hopes that venues will be able to start hosting events again in 2021.

Ticketmaster says it has been working on a post-pandemic plan that could use fans’ phones to verify their vaccination status or confirm they have tested negative before an event.

The company says the plan would be based on their own ticket app, third party health information firms and vaccine distribution providers.

This plan is still in development and will be up to event operators, not required by Ticketmaster, the company stated.

After buying a ticket fans would need to prove they had been vaccinated or tested negative 24 to 72 hours prior to the event, according to billboard.com.
