Immunity passports make it possible to ratchet down protective measures, such as stay-at-home orders and business closures, without increasing health risks.
It’s beginning as a trickle, but just remember that the global flood of Noah started with only one drop of rain but soon covered the entire world. The same thing is happening right now in real-time with secret registries of people who refuse to be vaccinated, immunity passports to allow you to fully return to society, airlines that bar you from international flights. Lockdowns, threats, fear and intimidation, this is Biderman’s Chart of Coercion in vivid technicolor.
Abusers use a variety of techniques in order to coerce others into behaving the way they want. In 1956, the psychologist Albert Biderman developed a framework for understanding the methods foreign armies used to extract false confessions from prisoners of war. Psychologists now believe that abusers in many different situations use the same methods to achieve control over their victims. These methods include:
- Monopolization of perception
- Induced exhaustion / debilitation
- Occasional indulgences
- Demonstrating ‘omnipotence’ and ‘omniscience’
- Enforcing trivial demands
That, in a nutshell, is exactly what’s been happening here in America and around the world for the past 9 months. The citizens of earth are right now held captive, not to a virus, but to global rulers bent on bringing in a New World Order.
In Spain a ‘register’ for those who refuse the vaccine: “It will be shared with EU countries”
The news was in the air for days, now it’s official. In Spain there will be a register of people who refuse the Covid vaccine.
The vaccine will not be mandatory, said Health Minister Salvador Illa, but whoever decides not to do so will be included in a “register” which will then be shared with other European Union countries.
The document – another clarification of the minister – “will not be public” and will be compiled “in full respect of privacy”. But the fact that it will be shared with other EU countries may lead to a ban on travel for those who refuse the drug. Not to mention the fact that Spain’s decision could pave the way for similar measures in other European countries. READ MORE
How to reopen the economy safely? Immunity passports.
With the authorization of a second effective vaccine against the coronavirus, we can imagine an end to the pandemic, like voyagers on a ship seeing the safety of shore.
But it will take many months before we reach the end of this perilous journey, and the public is increasingly losing patience with broad restrictions on day-to-day life. So as more and more people are vaccinated, it’s time to carefully design a system of immunity passports’.
THESE PASSPORTS WOULD SERVE AS A FORM OF PROOF OF IMMUNITY, ALLOWING PEOPLE WHO HAVE IMMUNITY TO ENGAGE IN SOME ACTIVITIES OTHERS CANNOT. THAT COULD MAKE IT POSSIBLE TO RATCHET DOWN PROTECTIVE MEASURES, SUCH AS STAY-AT-HOME ORDERS AND BUSINESS CLOSURES, WITHOUT INCREASING HEALTH RISKS. A VENUE COULD FINALLY REOPEN TO SOME PERFORMERS, FANS AND STAFF. VISITORS COULD RETURN MORE FREELY TO NURSING HOMES AND PRISONS. INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL COULD INCREASE.
Versions of these passports already exist. Travel between certain countries requires proof of yellow fever vaccination. Measles and other vaccines are mandatory for school admission. Hospitals and nursing homes require that staff get an annual flu shot. Immunity passports for covid-19 — although controversial for scientific, practical and ethical reasons — are already being developed. We need minimum standards to get this right.
First, the scientific issues. Any program should be explicit about what a passport means. Neither vaccination nor infection is a guarantee of protection against getting or spreading covid-19. Although results from clinical trials of the three leading vaccines have been overwhelmingly positive, robust data are not yet available on vaccine efficacy in different age groups, races and ethnicities, pregnant women and for those with certain medical conditions. Nor is it known how long immunity will last or whether vaccinated people can spread the virus.
Should the approximately 18 million Americans who have recovered from documented covid-19 infections get an immunity passport, too?
Unfortunately, we don’t know enough about natural immunity to certify how long and to what extent someone is protected after recovery. More accurate immunity tests and studies to better understand immunity after infection are urgently needed before we issue any form of passport after infection. Providing passports to people who recovered from natural infection may create a perverse incentive for people to get infected intentionally, especially if they perceive a low personal risk from illness. Policies should not encourage healthy people to risk infection. The more than 300,000 Americans who have died and the 100,000 currently hospitalized are a stark reminder of the danger of natural infection. But if infection is found to confer strong, long-term immunity, we could reallocate some vaccines while they’re still in short supply.
Second, we need practical and universal standards to verify who has been vaccinated. The United States currently uses a paper-based system (upon receiving the vaccine, people receive a coronavirus vaccination record card with basic information on it) with few security features that could serve as a trustworthy, official certificate. Nothing prevents these documents from being lost or stolen, and the opportunities for and consequences of fraud are high. Technology can solve some of these issues.
Recipients can opt for a digital certificate in some jurisdictions, but this creates its own challenges. The personal data collected raise privacy and security concerns, and the potential for misuse of data could dissuade some people from getting vaccinated. Everyone needs to be able to know and control what happens with their personal data. They should also have the choice of opting in to receive a digital certificate or not. We need appropriate, trustworthy and consistent standards rather than a patchwork of policies and digital tools to guide these systems and their application.
