Vaccination Passport Could Become A Reality For Travel, and Large Events
The rollout of the Covid vaccine has hit a few bumps during the early phases, but the good news is that the vaccine is getting into the people who need it most.
This is the light at the end of the tunnel that most of us have been waiting for in the fight against Covid-19. The vaccine is being distributed in phases based on risk level right now, and then will be given to the lower risk portion of the general population. Right now there is no requirement that you have to get the vaccine, but that might not always be the case.
Overall the vaccine is a welcome addition to the arsenal in fighting against Covid, but there are many people who are leery. There are even those who are going out of their way to sabotage the vaccine rollout, claiming that it will alter genes in the body.
Now that the vaccine is actually here, there are a whole new series of questions that are coming up. The majority of the questions revolve around if you will be required to get the vaccine.
I think the buzz word for 2021 is going to be Vaccination Passport.
There's talk right now about a potential vaccination passport that basically will be your ticket to travel and get into large events. There is even talk about employers requiring a vaccination passport before employees can return to work.
Imagine buying tickets to your first big concert after all of the Covid restrictions are lifted, and you can't go without your vaccination passport. This could be our "new normal". I know that there will be a huge push back from the anti-vaxxers on this one, but I have a feeling it won't just be that crowd resisting. If the pandemic has taught us anything, it's that there is a very loud segment of the population that does NOT like to be told what to do . . . even if it's in their own best interests.
