The Biden White House is following the lead of some European countries and beginning development on a vaccine passport that could be required to interact with certain sectors of our society:
NEWSMAX – The White House is working on a COVID-19 vaccine passport initiative that could be required for travel, sporting events and even eating out, reports The Washington Post.
The report comes as major U.S. airlines and nearly 30 travel and labor groups are pushing President Joe Biden to develop a standardized, government-backed credential to “accelerate safe economic activity and recovery.”
“The U.S. must be a leader in this development,” the groups wrote in a letter to COVID-19 Recovery Team Coordinator Jeff Zients on Monday. “The current diverse and fragmented digital health credentials used to implement different countries’ air travel testing requirements risk causing confusion, reducing compliance, and increasing fraud.”
Zients and the Department of Health and Human Services are leading the effort, according to sources who spoke with the Post. The White House declined to answer questions about the initiative and instead directed the news outlet to public statements made by Zients and other officials this month on the topic.
“Our role is to help ensure that any solutions in this area should be simple, free, open source, accessible to people both digitally and on paper, and designed from the start to protect people’s privacy,” Zients said at a March 12 briefing.
I really don’t like the sound of this at all. Right now many businesses still require a mask to enter. If this vaccine passport catches on like the mask mandate, then some of these businesses will no doubt require the vaccine passport to do business with them. Which means people who didn’t get the vaccine will be denied.
Honestly I can’t even believe the Biden White House is considering this, especially with the way Democrat SCREAM about Voter ID. If someone has to have a vaccine passport to eat out or to travel, how is that any different than someone having to show ID to vote? In fact it’s far worse in my opinion, but how can one be good and the other be bad?
When I first saw this today, I had almost the same reaction that Kyle Becker had:
I was thinking about getting the vaccine until the government came up with this “vaccine passport” shit and convince me there’s some nefarious business going on with it. Count me out, comrades. Stick your internal passport up your asses.

I have been considering getting the vaccine, but if they are going to start demanding a vaccine passport to participate in certain sectors of our society, then count me out. I don’t want to have anything to do with it.
