COVID-19 in Canada: 'Vaccination passports' a near certainty says bio-ethicist

CTV News shows that Bio-ethicist Kerry Bowman says the important discussion and tension over 'vaccine passports' is imminent as vaccinations increase.

It is possible that COVID-19 so-called vaccine passports will be no different to the normal documents you must show to travel to certain countries in the world.

Some people have no problems with this idea, but some people don't like this passport information idea. Nobody is arguing for making vaccines mandatory (it seems the decision to have a vaccine should always come down to an individual’s informed choice). It seems, also, that some people cannot have it for medical reasons, and these people should really not be discriminated against. As always, some people out there want to have more privacy of their medical records, also.

Governments want as many people as possible to use the important vaccine and have set up campaigns encouraging us all to do so, but doing so is not compulsory. People who have taken the vaccine are given a card stating they have received 1 or both doses and the information is also documented on their medical records.

However, if you choose not to have the vaccine (for reasons unrelated to any certain medical condition which precludes you from it) you must understand that it affects really not only yourself but those in the close space walking around you.

    1. Patient priority sure is important in the Covid-19 Coronavirus Pandemic situation. It seems that Vietnam successfully navigated the pandemic. Vietnam has been successful in containing both COVID-19 and its detrimental economic effects. Vietnam entered the pandemic with solid economic fundamentals and policy buffers. However, some structural challenges remained to be addressed. Strong foreign investment and current account surpluses strengthened external resilience of Vietnam. There even still more opportunities to significantly boost productivity and improve economic resilience.

      Singapore also had few deaths (compared to other countries in the world) from the Covid-19 Coronavirus Pandemic. Singapore reported 8 new COVID-19 cases and 1 death as of noon on Saturday (Mar 13, 2021). All the new virus infections were imported and were placed on stay-home notice or isolated upon arrival in country of Singapore, said the important Ministry of Health (MOH).
