2. COVID-19 vaccine passports are not in use everywhere.
While COVID-19 vaccine passports are receiving a lot of attention as proof of a COVID-19 vaccination, they are not widely used or accepted yet. Some airlines are accepting the vaccine passport apps, such as CommonPass for select flights out of New York and Boston, and IATA’s Travel Pass has been accepted for limited international travel. However, several states, including Georgia, Florida, Texas and Arkansas have stated they will ban or opt out of any vaccine passports. Many state officials say a vaccine passport violates privacy or takes away an individual’s right to choose or decline a COVID-19 vaccination.
