New Yorkers will be required to show “vaccine passports” – proof that they have received the COVID-19 vaccine – in order to re-enter society.
The New York Post reported that the “Excelsior Pass” would officially launch on April 2, following an announcement from Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) on Friday.
“Similar to a mobile airline boarding pass, individuals will be able to either print out their pass or store it on their smartphones using the Excelsior Pass Wallet app,” said a press release about the program. “Each Pass will have a secure QR code, which participating businesses and venues can scan using a companion app to verify proof of COVID-19 negative test results or proof of vaccination. An individual’s data is kept secure and confidential at all times.”

The app, which launched Friday, already works to prove vaccination status or negative test results and can be used to gain access to wedding receptions, which now require negative tests from attendees, and other events above the social gathering limit.

New York Will Officially Begin Requiring ‘Vaccine Passports’ On April 2

This comes from the same people that would have thrown you in jail to rot miserably if 40 ago any store demanded to see proof that a customer was HIV or Herpes negative.

I don’t believe Cuomo will resign. He is having too much fun playing Generalisimo of New York State.

  1. I mean, I’m literally never setting foot in New York, but….

    Someone needs to go around recording the folks asking for these passes and somehow getting them to say “papers, please.”

    I don’t have a REAL ID because I’m old enough to remember that requiring an internal passport to move freely inside their own country was proof that the Soviet Union was evil.

    1. It’s possible it was constructed by competent cryptographers — but absent solid evidence I would assume otherwise.

      As for papers, I remember when I was a child growing up in Holland, any attempt to institute national ID was met by loud shouts of “Ausweis!” — a reference to the ID cards required in occupied Holland during the Nazi occupation. Sadly, a decade or two later, Holland surrendered to the EU and did institute a national ID card, and the politicians accommodated police push to add a requirement to carry it and produce it when demanded by any government official.

  2. Yes, how many ways can the Empire state commit suicide? Cuomo is hell bend on leaving ruin as his legacy .

  3. Have to show your number in order to participate in economic activity? Sounds positively Beastly!
    Expect this to go national, shortly after the Deimocrats cut down every law in England (as the feller said). And businesses that don’t participate will find their insurance policies cancelled.
    Eventually, the QR code will be secured against counterfeiting by querying a central server to [details omitted; let ’em figure it out themselves], so everyone’s movements will be tracked, and if your phone is ever turned off while you’re away from home, Big Brother will know it.

  4. To clarify – this Excelsior Pass app will be available for use beginning April 2. Use is voluntary and it’s something that could be used by large venues that want proof of vaccination prior to people entering. It’s not mandatory and even the state is admitting you aren’t subject to HIPAA protections as your data can be seen by authorized 3rd parties.

    I’m not defending this app or the idea of a vaccine passport. I’ll certainly never use it. This said, the Daily Wire is usually a good news site but much of their article is gaslighting. There are numerous problems that would arise, both legally and logistically if New York was actually going to attempt what the Daily Wire suggests, and it all begins with HIPAA, or the lack thereof. It’s DOA as any meaningful tool because of that, and that’s just one issue.
