Proof of Vaccination

Hey everybody, I am so happy to hear that cruising (fingers crossed) will start in mid-July. But does anybody else have an issue with giving private information of a medical nature to a third party to exercise your rights to freedom of movement? I feel that the Gov't is trying to get around a vaccine passport by co-erceing big business to do it for them.

No problem for me. I don't see how them having that info would compromise any aspect of my life. Like others have stated on this thread, the amount of info they ALREADY have would surprise most people.

In fact, I'm one of the 86%* that prefers the cruise lines require proof of vaccination.

* I think that's the percentage cited in a past article I had seen on the subject. However, I'm going off of memory.

For me it isn't a problem to show someone with a legitimate need my card.

Rather, it's the idea of a centralized computer database that spits out a unique qr code before I can do normal activities or can be used to track my everyday movements.

Gov Cuomo of New York has proposed that this code be required to get on the subway, go to a restaurant or attend a Ball game.

Also who would manage the database? Tencent holdings has volunteered. WHO likes that idea. So, Tencent is a Chinese company. Do you feel comfortable giving this information to the People's Republic of China? I don't!

I am willing to show proof of vaccination

Thanks to their hacking into a Government Security Clearance database, they already have all my informationAngry

No issues here. It is what it is.

The whole reason I got the Vaccine, was to be able to cruise, so.....They can ask for my papers all they like, as long as I can get on a ship.

I have a BIG ISSUE with being forced to take a "vaccination" for an illness that I have almost a 100% chance of recovering from. I never have had the flu vaccine, and I don't need this experimental vaccine, either. There are too many unknowns about long term effects as well as serious adverse reactions in otherwise perfectly healthy people.

Respectfully, nobody is forcing you to take anything.

Actually they are if the person wants to cruise. Your argument may be, well you don't have to cruise then! Well neither does anyone else. Making something a mandate to do something is forcing them to do it if they want to partake in that activity. I respect both sides. I can see why people get the vaccine and why people don't. The rub of it is when activities like cruising may mandate a vaccine to go cruising. I do think in a sense that is forcing someone to get the vaccine. Just my two copper.
