This whole thing is such a joke.

If this was a Federal database where those administering the vaccines reported vaccinate dates, names, and DoBs, and whatever vaccine card they issued had a QR to verify against this data source, it would be much harder to falsify and leave a trail if someone submitted false vaccination data.

Remember the guy in charge of the country at the time the vaccines were rolled out kept his own vaccination a secret... a national database was the last thing they wanted.

It's not like the current administration is any better in this regard, their policy here is similar.

The train was out of the station by then. You had 20 million people vaccinated without trace already. (Confirmatory antibody testing is a huge burden that would’ve unleashed even more resentment) There is nothing in this administration that suggests they wouldn’t have supported a high quality vaccine, but the mindset of the previous administration was very clear.

It’s surprising the stakeholders like the airlines and cruise companies haven’t don’t more to solve this. Clear seems to be the only player attempting to create a viable solution.

Which mindset would making quick vaccine availability the central (only?) aspect of COVID policy be?

The one of the administration that used Federal resources to vaccinate Americans more than the one that dumped it on the States and rinsed their hands off it.

The vaccine was developed in March 2020. The US government employs 3,000,000 people and spent a few trillion dollars last year. They weren't too busy to figure out a single value database. Give me a break

None of this has anything to do with my question. (besides the ridiculousness of the second part-ignoring how EVERYONE was saying at the time that having one by the time it happened was unrealistic) Whether they did a good job or not has nothing at all to do with what I wrote.

An administration that shoots the arrow and then draws the target around it. They first see what’s a safe objective to target then announce it as an accomplishment.

Don’t get me wrong I do think the Biden administration did a great job keeping the pace going and setting up federal vaccination sites, but they were lucky to have the ducks lined up for them.

Sorry but I don't understand what you're saying and how it's relevant to this thread.

Vaccine development was literally the only item the Trump admin did to fight covid once border restrictions failed. Maybe it worked well maybe it didn't, but that makes their opinion about the usefulness of vaccines pretty clear.

But I didn't say they thought vaccines were useless. I said they thought vaccine passports are useless - that's what this thread is about.

Somebody who wouldn't reveal he himself got vaccinated clearly thought there is pride in not getting vaccinated (at least for people at lower risk) and would be wholly uninterested in policies that would practically all but require people to get vaccinated.

He actually mentioned safety sarcastically. Keep on droning, nobody’s listening anyway.

"This should keep us all safe! And you wonder why Israel doesn't trust anyone else's "records."
-your saying he wasnt implying making fake passports is a safety issue?

Although it’s increasingly harder to comprehend what exactly you’re trying to articulate, you do realize that your argument of “even fully vaccinated people can catch” is an answer to “how is he a danger”, right?

I’m starting to thing the solution to anti-vaxxers is just math.
point is if a vaccinated person can still catch and spread covid then a passport aint going to accomplish much.
