Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis vowed to take executive action against vaccine passports, in the video published on March 29, 2021, “Gov. Ron DeSantis vows to take executive action against vaccine passports“, below:
With regard to COVID vaccines, Governor DeSantis’ position is “provide it for all but mandate it for none.” He believes in individual freedom and liberty to make decision with regard to participation in COVID vaccinations and that such a decision for vaccination is private health information. On Friday, April 2, 2021, Governor Ron DeSantis signed an executive order effectively banning the use of vaccine passport in state of Florida. This would prevent any Florida government entity from issuing a vaccine passport to prove that a person has been vaccinated for COVID-19. This executive order also bans businesses in Florida from requiring customers to provide COVID-19 vaccine documentation to gain access or services. The specific wording of the executive order says “requiring so-called COVID-19 vaccine passports for taking part in everyday life – such as attending a sporting event, patronizing a restaurant, or going to a movie theater – would create two classes of citizens based on vaccination.”
DeSantis said he plans to get the vaccine soon now that he is eligible.
Even after having been vaccinated, every one is still recommended to wear mask.

Naturally, many of our readers are asking, “What are vaccine passports?”
Vaccine passports are likely to become a feature of everyday life as lockdowns are lifted across the world. But as “green passes” kick-start economies, what are the potential drawbacks? In the video published on March 26, 2021, “Can vaccine passports kickstart the economy? The Economist“, below:
Some start-ups and major tech companies such as Microsoft, Ticketmaster, Apple, and Google are interested in vaccine or immunization passports to help reopen the economy. But health officials are weary, warning the apps are pointless without more knowledge about the efficacy of the vaccines.

The rise in mistrust of vaccines threatens the effectiveness of vaccine for covid-19, in the video published on Nov 18, 2020, “Covid-19: why vaccine mistrust is growing, The Economist“, below:
According to a research by Cornell University, analyzing 38 million English language articles about the pandemic, they found former President Trump was the single largest driver of misinformation around COVID-19, leading to increased mistrust of vaccine or established science. If anti-vaxxers become the majority, there will not be herd immunity, for it requires at least 76% of the population to become vaccinated in order to reach herd immunity. So, you are encouraged to become a Global Vaccine Advocate, to help to inoculate others against misinformation, in the crusade toward herd immunity.
