I’ve been saying it for over a year, before you know it, the U.S. government will require a vaccine passport for travel and other reasons! Now a survey reveals what I’ve been predicting, a majority of Americans are in favor of a vaccine passport!
My good friends at TravelPulse.com are reporting, “Travel site Upgraded Points has just released a report on its recent consumer research that reveals Americans’ sentiments about various travel restrictions and the concept of vaccine passports. It also examined trends tied to age, gender and vaccination status.
Nearly 1,000 U.S. citizens from a range of demographics, were polled on various topics relating to so-called vaccine passports—defined as “a document proving you have been vaccinated against COVID-19”, whether paper or digital—between June 2 and 3, 2021.
Despite ongoing controversy surrounding vaccine passports and fears about the potential limitation of personal freedoms, Upgraded Points’ survey results indicated that most Americans now support the idea. Most respondents were already familiar with the term “vaccine passport”, and close to 82 percent of them said that they now support the notion in one form or another. Women were seven percent more likely to support the concept than men.
Generationally speaking, Baby Boomers were the least likely to support vaccine passports (77 percent). Their responses were given to change conditionally, based on such factors as whether or not masks are worn, or the given setting, such as airports, planes or other enclosed spaces. More than half (61 percent) of participants felt that vaccine passports would infringe on the personal rights of unvaccinated individuals. Older generations were also more likely to be wary of healthcare inequity and data privacy issues, and the potential for forged documents.
The survey also sought to ascertain whether vaccination mandates for certain activities—domestic travel, sitting indoors at a restaurant, or attending sporting events/concerts—would influence people to get inoculated.”
