The next time you’re headed out to the latest Chicago concert you may be required by ticket vendors to show proof of your Covid inoculation. A vaccination passport if you will. Ticket Master is already looking into a way to require proof of vaccination when purchasing tickets to an event.
So what is a vaccine passport?
These already exist for international travel, like the yellow card issued by the World Health Organization (WHO), used to prove vaccinations from diseases like cholera and yellow fever. While something like this has been in effect for many years, WHO is recommending against such a thing. While limited access to vaccines and not enough significant research performed to satisfy the skeptical, there is concern behind creating a “vaccination global elite” and an “underclass”. Israel has already instituted a “green card” as proof of Covid vaccination and had already inoculated 2/3 of their population as of early 2021.
Even though Covid rates are falling with the rise in vaccinations, the variant strain is spreading and mutating. The argument remains whether we will need to provide proof of Covid vaccinations in order to attend public events. Is this fair in the face of public safety or is this an infringement on personal rights?
