Re: Vaccine Passports - A Poll

I’m most interested in immunity status. Is there any evidence that you only get Covid once? Like chicken pox? No. Immunity seems to vane after a while and some people already have had COVID twice.

Not so sure about that. Lyon are nowhere near as good as Leinster - they coughed the ball up far too easily - and Exeter can't afford to give Leinster a 14 point lead next weekend.
