Poll: Future Travel Plans?? 🛫
This week we asked the Invstr Community how they felt about a “vaccine passport”. If you don’t know what it is, a vaccine passport is a document attesting that its bearer is immune to a contagious disease (in this case COVID-19). In the United States people who haven’t gotten the vaccine would be unable to travel if this law were put into place. Some countries have already made the move to have “vaccine passports”. For example, China unveiled a digital vaccine passport via an app – enabling people to verify their vaccination status by scanning a QR code. Although this has yet to come to the U.S it isn’t off the table. And clearly if it did, as we see from the results, there would be mixed opinions within the Invstr community.
For those who chose indifferent or not sure this may be explained because there are more pressing issues than a vaccine passport, or even the implications it may have on freedom.
On the other hand, it makes sense that many who supported getting the vaccine also support a broader extension of its use to protect society. Last but not least, the second largest group was those who did not support the vaccine passport, not necessarily that they didn’t have or support the vaccine, but just the idea of a vaccine passport.
The position brings up an interesting conversation regarding freedom, public health, the role of government, privacy and more – even how the market could react to such a policy being passed! All in all, the Invstr community has once again spoken and with a diverse range of opinions! Thanks for sharing and happy investing everyone!
