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

The Daily Wire – by Ashe Schow

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.”

More from the Post:

The app won’t show any health information when scanned — it’ll only show a green checkmark if the person has been vaccinated or tested negatively or a red “x” if they haven’t.

Major venues, such as Madison Square Garden and the Times Union Center in Albany, will begin using the app next week and on April 2, Excelsior Pass will expand to “smaller arts, entertainment and event venues,” Cuomo’s office said. 

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.

  1. So, you want me to take your poison so I can “re-enter society?” What if I don’t want to “re-enter?” What if I jus’ wanna stay out here where things make sense and individuals have healthy minds of self-determinism. But you wanna cut me off, prevent me from going where I would go. And you call your “permission” The EXCELSIOR PASS. Dictionary defines excelsior as “used to indicate superior quality, lofty.” So those taking the jab are now to be deemed “superior, lofty.” Wow, guess I’ll just wallow here at the bottom a bit longer, while I plan more ways to undo your tyranny.

    And your claim regarding your noble pass: “Robust privacy protections are woven throughout the digital health pass solution…” Oh yes, so easy to believe that; just look at how well you have guarded my privacy over the last few decades. So easy to trust you. NOT!! Lastly I refer to those last 3 words: “health pass solution.” SOLUTION!! SOLUTION???!!! Your are solving NOTHING for me!! Not my privacy, not my freedom of movement, not my state of health, not anything that grants me a decent life to live free. Take you EXCELSIOR HEALTH PASS and insert it you know where.
