Florida Governor Ron DeSantis Says He Will Ban Vaccine Passports in His State

Florida Guv Ron DeSantis (R) pressed back versus needing vaccine passports in his state, stating he wouldn’t permit them.

“We are not supporting doing any vaccine passports in the state of Florida,” he stated. “It’s completely unacceptable for either the government or the private sector to impose upon you the requirement that you show proof of vaccine to just simply be able to participate in normal society.”

“You want to go to a movie theater. Should you have to show that? No. You want to go to a game, should you have to show that? No. You want to go to a theme park? No. We’re not supportive of that,” he continued.

DeSantis’s remarks followed news outlets reported that the Biden administration is apparently dealing with a nationwide vaccine-passport program that would permit individuals to show they’ve been immunized prior to getting in personal locations.

Jeffrey Zients, the White Home coronavirus action organizer, stated at a rundown previously this month, “As 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,” he included. “Our role is to help ensure that any solutions in this area should be simple, free, open source, accessible to people both digitally and on paper, and designed from the start to protect people’s privacy.”
