For months I’ve been sounding the alarm about so-called “Vaccine or COVID Passports”, but today Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) took a bold step to reject them.
TheHill.com is reporting, “Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) vowed to take executive action this week banning “vaccine passports” that businesses and local governments could potentially require to show digital or physical proof of vaccination against COVID-19.
The Florida governor said during a Monday press conference that he would take action by “an executive function, emergency function” against vaccine passports and requested the Republican state legislature draft a bill forbidding such passports.
“We always said we wanted to provide it for all but mandate it for none,” DeSantis said in Tallahassee. “And that was something that, while it was advised to take particularly if you’re vulnerable, we were not going to force you to do it.”
“It’s completely unacceptable for either the government or the private sector to impose upon you the requirement that you show proof of vaccine to just simply participate in normal society,” he added.”
My thought has always been, it continues to be, that the Biden administration at some point will mandate COVID vaccinations or proof of recovery from COVID to be allowed to travel.
As you may know, over the last 18 months I’ve travel to Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Jamaica. The U.S. government is already mandating COVID testing prior to flying back to America. The Palladium Hotel Group is providing antigen tests for free to comply with the CDC requirement.
It makes sense to me that President Biden will take even bolder steps to impose COVID-related regulations on travelers.
