Dating apps support UK government’s vaccination campaign

Dating apps in the UK are advertising the British government’s “Every vaccination gives us hope” campaign.

The Department of Health even suggested that users could boost their romantic chances by telling potential dates they are vaccinated.

It cited a YouGov poll in May that found 28 percent of adults would not date someone who was not vaccinated and 31 percent would prefer not to.

Despite turning to dating apps like Tinder and Bumble for help, the UK government has not formally given the green light to casual dating during the pandemic.

The advice for England is that people can choose not to socially distance while meeting friends and family but should be “cautious.”

So far, the UK has given more than 27 million people both vaccine doses and more than 40 million have received a single dose.

Those under 40 are being offered an alternative to the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine due to a slightly higher risk of blood clots.
