56. Results are taken from questions run on behalf of Scottish Government on the YouGov online omnibus survey. The sample is demographically and geographically representative of adults 18+ across Scotland, with c.1000 responses each week. Fieldwork took place on 7-8 September among a sample size of 1021 adults. Respondents were asked the extent to which they agree or disagree with the following statement: "The high level of people with two doses of the vaccine in Scotland gives me more confidence to go out and about."

57. Source: YouGov online survey. Fieldwork took place on 24-25 August among a sample size of 1007 adults, with results to this question re-based to exclude those who selected "Not applicable" (n=799). Respondents were shown the following statement: "One possible approach to allow entry to venues such as stadiums, arenas and nightclubs is to introduce a Covid certification scheme. The exact details of this would need to be confirmed but an example may involve showing a certificate that proves you have been fully vaccinated or tested negative in the last 48 hours." Then they were asked the extent to which they agree or disagree with the following statement: "If I wanted to go to a venue or event, having this scheme in place would make me feel more comfortable doing this."
