Vaccine passport

Mississippi Governor Reeves joins Florida’s DeSantis in opposing ‘vaccine passports’

Republican Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves joined other conservative voices opposing a so-called “vaccine passport,” a proposed identification for a person to verify if they have received a COVID-19 Vaccine.

“I don’t think it’s necessary, and I don’t think it’s a good thing to do in America,” Reeves said in an interview with CNN on Sunday.

A vaccine passport acts like a regular passport whereby people can attest to their vaccination status to travel or enter businesses as society begins to open back up.

Reeves; comments come after other Republican governors have pushed back against the idea of a vaccine passport. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis issued an executive order last Friday banning local and state government agencies and businesses from requiring people to show their vaccination status.

DeSantis said such measures would “reduce individual freedom” and “create two classes of citizens based on vaccination,” according to The New York Times.

So far in the U.S., only one state has implemented anything resembling a vaccine passport, that being New York which has a limited government partnership with a private company in the state, according to the Associated Press.
