They are discussing vaccine passports openly now. Vaccine passports, which would allow people with immunity to Covid to prove they were at low risk of spreading the disease, are being investigated by companies and countries around the world. But the proposals have also raised fears among critics that they could underpin an oppressive digital ID system, and put sensitive medical records in the hands of authorities and employers.
And rightfully so, it is only logical in my opinion to assume this information and database they intend to build here will be used for other purposes. And this is intended to be digital so it would be open to hackers as well. This is not for a virus with a less than 1% fatality rate. This is about a system of control that they are building. A database to track and trace us all.
Despite the name, a vaccine passport is not a piece of paper; instead, in the most developed versions of the idea, it is an app or similar system that can prove the bearer has been vaccinated, tested positive for Covid antibodies, or recently received a negative test. There would be no need to build and operate a privacy violating centralised database they say.
So as you can see they already sound incredibly secure about the information I mean after all we’re just tracking one vaccine. It won’t be used for anything else ever. Why on Earth would anyone think that it would be. And information leaks, don’t be silly those never happen with important personal information.
The pressures on such a system are similar to those faced by the NHS in building its contact-tracing app. A centralised system, which simply keeps a database of people who have been vaccinated and allows them to grant access to others, may be easiest to build, but poses unacceptable privacy burdens. Instead, one proposed system, developed by two British firms, Mvine and iProov, would be secured with a biometric identifier, preventing the records from being accessed without the bearer’s consent.
“This kind of technology enables the medical professional administering the vaccination to create the online certificate using a phone or tablet, and then to ask the user to have a selfie added to their electronic certificate,” says Andrew Bud, the founder and chief executive of iProov. “The certificate does not need to include the name, address, NHS number or any other identifying information about the person – it is completely anonymous.”
So they say but look, this is how it always begins, and its always rolled out exactly like this. It is for your own good and safety, and after all it’s just this one little thing this one time. They’ll never ask for more or add shit on behind our backs because history isn’t know to repeat itself anymore apparently.
like the masks, social distancing, and lockdowns this is really about compliance. They introduce this as a cool tracking & tracing app that’s anonymous and totally secure of course and the best part is as far as actual mandates goes is completely optional. Until you can’t travel, shop, or work without it that is.
