Although Ticketmaster denied it had come to a final decision on whether to mandate a vaccine certification to allow people to buy tickets, many expressed their agreement with the idea, with one commenting, “Inject me now.”
A report in Billboard magazine claimed that the ticketing company would mandate customers to prove they’d had a negative COVID test or had taken the vaccine before their purchase was approved.
The news arrived shortly after it was announced that drug company Pfizer had developed a coronavirus vaccine with a 90% success rate.
However, while Ticketmaster admitted it was exploring the idea, the company released a statement saying there will be “absolutely no requirement” for mandated vaccines.
“Ticketmaster does not have the power to set policies around safety/entry requirements, which would include vaccines and/or testing protocols,” said the company, adding that such a decision would be in the hands of the event organizer.
Despite this, according to a BBC News report, “The majority of fans welcomed the move, if it would mean the resumption of live music.”
“Inject me now,” wrote one respondent on Twitter.
