Vaccine passports will be rejected in Florida.
As news broke over the weekend that Sleepy Joe was working with private companies to develop a nationwide vaccine passport, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced he is taking executive action to prohibit them inside his state.
If any politician truly values freedom and personal choice, then this is the position they need to take.
Reject vaccine passports at all cost.
They are a fundamental violation of the U.S. Constitution.
And anyone who complies with them is violating our civil liberties.
Kudos to DeSantis for once again sticking up for Floridians.
If only every state had a governor with a spine.

The best governor in America, @GovRonDeSantis, should lead the way on vaccine passports by banning their use in Florida, as they are purposely discriminatory and present a gross violation of our individual rights as Americans.

A vaccine passport, requiring an individual to show proof of receiving a vaccination for the Chinese coronavirus to participate in certain activities, is a “terrible” and “unacceptable” idea that will not be embraced in Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) told reporters on Thursday.
DeSantis, who held a roundtable discussion with renowned doctors and epidemiologists who praised the steps Florida took in its response to the virus by rejecting further lockdowns and intrusive restrictions, made it clear that the Sunshine State will not require a vaccine passport — an idea that is under consideration, particularly for international travel.
“The vaccine passport is a terrible idea. We are definitely not going to require anything from the state’s perspective. That is totally off the table,” DeSantis said. “If I have businesses that want to do that in Florida, I think that that’s more than just a private decision.”
DeSantis said the decision would impact society and, particularly, disadvantaged people, making it a “negative” move for the state as a whole.
“So what form that would take, I’d have to discuss it with my folks. I’d have to discuss it potentially with the legislature. But I think it’s a very, very bad idea,” he continued.
“Look, if you want to go to a movie theater or concert, all this stuff, go. If you don’t, don’t. But to require somebody to show some type of proof of vaccination, I think, is completely unacceptable, and it’s not something that we’re going to support here in any way in Florida,” he vowed.
And National File:
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced Monday that he would be taking executive action against the “vaccine passports” being developed by the Biden regime and private corporations to deny Americans the right to commerce if they cannot provide proof of receiving a COVID vaccination shot on the spot.
“You want the fox to guard the hen house? I mean, give me a break,” DeSantis said. “I think this is something that has huge privacy implications, it is not necessary to do.”
DeSantis said that while it’s “important” for vulnerable populations to be able to take the vaccine, “we are not going to have you provide proof of this just to be able to live your life normally, and I’m going to be taking some action, in an executive function, emergency function right here very shortly.”
As National File reported Sunday, “vaccine passports” are being pushed by the Biden regime in cooperation with private companies:
According to The Washington Post, the Biden regime “and private companies are working to develop a standard way of handling credentials — often referred to as ‘vaccine passports’ — that would allow Americans to prove they have been vaccinated against the novel coronavirus as businesses try to reopen.”
They note that many businesses, “from cruise lines to sports teams,” will require individuals to take the COVID-19 vaccine before they are offered business. The Biden regime, apparently, views this as a positive development.
“The passports are expected to be free and available through applications for smartphones,” the Post reported. “Which could display a scannable code similar to an airline boarding pass. Americans without smartphone access should be able to print out the passports, developers have said.”
According to those developing the vaccine passports, they must be entirely unique, and not able to be hacked or tampered with, lest Americans engage in commerce without taking one of the controversial vaccines.
