Vaccine passports are efforts by authoritarian leftist regimes and globalists to segregate and isolate unvaccinated individuals from participation in society. As such, it is considered a form of medical apartheid, which is illegal under the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and similar constitutions in other countries, and it is also a violation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and of God-given rights in general.
In North America they were developed in some states and provinces to limit travel by people who declined or have not received a COVID-19 "vaccine". They are intended to enable the general public to easily determine whether each individual has been vaccinated and limit access to businesses by unvaccinated individuals.
The Republican states of Florida, Georgia, Alabama and Arizona have all banned vaccine passports.
Some Canadian provinces, such as Ontario and Quebec, require proof of vaccination to enter non-essential businesses. New Brunswick has taken it one step further by demanding proof of vaccination to enter essential businesses such as grocery stores.
Australia has some of the most stringent and totalitarian requirements for compliance on the planet outside of the Peoples Republic of China. Germany and Austria have likewise resorted to Gestapo-like tactics for enforcement.
There is a push for a digital certification of vaccination status. The World Health Organization is promoting a digital standard for proving one's vaccination status.
Unique Patient Identifier
There is not yet any single health care database, and no corresponding unique patient identifier. Hillary Clinton’s health care plan attempted unsuccessfully to establish such a database and create a unique identifier.
After Hillary Care collapsed in 1994 and Republicans took over Congress, Bob Dole (R-KS) and other Republicans who favored Hillary-style health care came back in 1996 to pass the Kennedy-Kassebaum Act, better known as HIPAA, which included much of Hillary’s plan in a notorious section called Administrative Simplification, which among many other provisions, authorized HHS to develop a unique patient identifier (UPI). After the bill was passed, Dr. Jane Orient sounded the alarm.
In 1998, Dr. Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) got this rider passed to the annual HHS Appropriations bill:
- “Sec. 516. None of the funds made available in this Act may be used to promulgate or adopt any final standard under section 1173(b) of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1320d-2(b)) providing for, or providing for the assignment of, a unique health identifier for an individual (except in an individual's capacity as an employer or a health care provider), until legislation is enacted specifically approving the standard.”
After Democrats took over the House in 2019 and 2020, the House stripped out the rider, but the Senate put it back before final passage.
In 2021, Senate Democrats propose to eliminate Legacy Policy Riders.
