In a report released Sunday, the far-left Washington Post claimed to have spoken with five federal officials who said the administration has partnered with unnamed corporations to push COVID-19 vaccine credentials technology.
“The passports are expected to be free and available through applications for smartphones, which could display a scannable code similar to an airline boarding pass,” the Post said. “Americans without smartphone access should be able to print out the passports, developers have said.”
The Post’s report added that the Biden regime has been “working to coordinate across dozens of agencies and a variety of experts” on the effort. A recent meeting about vaccine passports featured more than 150 officials, including staff from the Department of Defense and NASA, according to the report.
Joe Biden had signed an executive order in January calling on top federal agencies to “assess the feasibility of linking COVID-19 vaccination to International Certificates of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICVP).” The order stressed that the government do so “in coordination with any relevant international organizations.”
So far, the Biden regime has identified at least 17 vaccine passport initiatives, like one led by the disgraced World Health Organization and another called the Vaccination Credential Initiative (VCI), The Washington Post said. More than 225 organizations, including Microsoft, already have pledged to use the VCI’s forthcoming app.
“The White House this month took on a bigger role coordinating government agencies involved in the work, led by coronavirus coordinator Jeff Zients, with a goal of announcing updates in coming days, said one official,” the Post related.
Zients has faced criticism for his tenure on Facebook’s board of directors and for helping to host a White House meeting with Chinese business elites linked to Hunter Biden during Joe Biden’s vice presidency. The White House has been working with Facebook and other Big Tech companies for weeks to suppress so-called COVID-19 “misinformation,” a source revealed last month.
Powerful nations of the world, including China, the UK, and Canada are discussing plans to require so-called 'vaccine passports' as a condition for travel, and possibly to restrict entry to shopping and entertainment venues.
Israel has already put in place a system to discriminate against those who choose not to take the COVID vaccine, and, in the United States, Joe Biden has signed a new executive order which could pave the way for the implementation of a 'vaccine passport' system. [See more below.]
This kind of medical dictatorship must be resisted, and therefore, we must act quickly before these authoritarian notions take root and spread!
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition to SAY NO to government 'vaccine passports.' Tell your legislators to respect your freedom not to vaccinate without fear of repercussion.
People should not have to live in fear of government retribution for refusing a vaccine which is being rushed to market by Big Pharma and their fellow-travelers in NGOs, like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
It would be intolerable and immoral for the government to coerce someone, and their family, to take a COVID vaccine against their will just so they can do their weekly grocery shopping, go to a high school soccer game, travel on public transport, or visit their relatives who live in a different part of the country, or overseas.
Medical freedom must be respected in principle and also in practice.
So, it is now time that our policy-makers listen to all voices involved in this vital conversation, and start to represent those who will not tolerate being punished, restricted, or tracked for refusing an experimental vaccine.
Simply put, legislatures must begin to act as legislatures again.
Questions must be asked. Hearings and investigations must be held. And, the legislatures of each state and country must return to the business of representing the people who voted for them, assuming their rightful place as the originator of legislation.
We will no longer accept the dictates of executive branches without question. And, neither can we accept the dictates of some doctors who seem detached from reality and from science.
Please SIGN and SHARE this urgent petition which asks national political leaders (as well as state and provincial legislators in the U.S. and Canada) to pledge to respect the rights of those who refuse a COVID vaccine, and NOT introduce 'vaccine passports,' or any other system which would discriminate on the basis of taking the COVID vaccine.

“(A)s we increase the number of people vaccinated, we know some people may have a need to demonstrate that they are vaccinated. The private sector and not-for-profit coalitions are already beginning to work on this,” Zients said at a briefing three weeks ago.
'This is wrong'
Vaccine passports nevertheless have drawn heavy scrutiny from ethics experts and medical professionals alike.
“Mandates, ‘passports’ or any effort to intimidate Americans into taking a vaccine for a virus with a 99.7 percent survival rate not only is damaging to individual liberty, it also contradicts safe medical practice,” America’s Frontline Doctors declared last month. “Yet state governments, along with powerful private interests, are moving in the direction of requiring inoculations for large segments of our society as a condition to return to a ‘normal’ life. This is wrong.”
“What if we start barring people from essential goods and services?” Professor Melinda Mills of Oxford University told the BBC. “There is a risk of unjustly discriminating in hiring, attending events, insurance, housing applications, you can think of many examples.”
The White House did not comment on The Washington Post story. White House press secretary Jen Psaki said during a press conference on Monday that the Biden regime “will more be focused on guidelines” for the technology. “A determination or development of vaccine passports, or whatever you want to call it, will be driven by the private sector,” she continued.
Joe Biden previously vowed that he would not seek to mandate COVID-19 vaccination. “I wouldn’t demand it to be mandatory, but I would do everything in my power,” he said at a press conference in December. Dr. Anthony Fauci, Biden’s top COVID-19 adviser who may be linked to the origin of the virus itself, likewise has publicly rejected a government vaccine requirement.
Federal law indicates that medical products that lack full authorization from the Food and Drug Administration, like COVID-19 vaccines, cannot be mandated. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) stated in August that COVID-19 vaccines “are not allowed to be mandatory.”
All of the coronavirus vaccines approved for emergency use in the United States have connections to aborted babies’ cells and have been denounced by a coalition of high-ranking Catholic prelates. Medical experts also have flagged the novel technology used in COVID-19 jabs made by Pfizer and Moderna, in particular, for possible links to severe health effects, including “systemic inflammation,” genome issues, and blood disorders.
More than 2,000 deaths after COVID-19 vaccination have been reported to the vaccine injury tracking system of the federal government as of March 22. Those figures may well be a major undercount, as some experts have warned.
New York state already has begun to roll out a COVID-19 vaccine passport system for arts, entertainment, and other events, which will be fully implemented next month, scandal-plagued Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced.
Democrats have been working to mandate vaccine credentials as a precondition for returning to normal life alongside their radical push for near-total bans on voter ID requirements, despite hundreds of incidents of election-tainting fraud last year.
