    From 15 August, vaccinated guests have to be fully vaccinated to enter Night Clubs, bars and discos i.e. you will need to show either a negative test or proof of full immunisation. This means that you are only considered vaccinated if you had both doses of the vaccine OR for vaccines that only require one dose, starting on the 22nd day after vaccination.
