“Springsteen on Broadway” Backtracks on Astra Zeneca Vaccinated Fans: Now All WHO Approved May Come


WHO are you? WHO? WHO?

Springsteen on Broadway has backtracked on its vaccine proclamation, to the relief of Canadians and other international tourists.

The show — sold out, and selling from scalpers at astronomical prices — originally said they’d only accept those who could prove they’d had FDA approved vaccinations.

But now the show says also WHO approved, meaning Astra Zeneca and maybe even Russian Sputnik are okay.

The website now reads:

“Guests will need to be fully vaccinated with an FDA or WHO approved vaccine in order to attend SPRINGSTEEN ON BROADWAY and must show proof of vaccination at their time of entry into the theatre with their valid ticket. “Fully vaccinated” means the performance date you are attending must be:

  • at least 14 days after your second dose of a FDA or WHO approved two dose COVID-19 vaccine, or
  • at least 14 days after your single dose of a FDA or WHO approved single dose COVID-19 vaccine.”

Can you imagine being in Canada and spending a couple thou on tickets only to learn your vaccine was no good? (Actually I can’t imagine either part of that question.)

So good news for all. Frankly, after what I saw around town last night, everyone’s just gone back to pre-times, no proof of vax, no masks, no temp taking. This thing had really better be over!
