Should Airlines Require Vaccination Records from Travelers?

This should be interesting. We're already seeing protest from hospital employees. Will every traveling American run out and get a flu shot? Dig up old vaccine records from 1967?

Something tells me that I'll be in my car a lot. Or on AirFrance and Lufthansa because they're not as hysterical in Europe.

Only until they introduce roadside check points. It would be easier to just carry documents with you everywhere you go that prove you are up to date. Of course, these documents would carry the official seal from government approved medical facilities, which is where all vaccines will be administered in the future. Then, once people get good at forging the documents, they might upgrade it to implants with the information coded right into you! Just scan people wherever they go, and the records will always be right there.....you could even tie a person's bank account, social security info, and any other personal info into the implant to make it all run smoothly ......without proof of vaccination, people won't be able to even function in the modern world!

yes, it's out there, right? Well, we are only at the beginning and I don't want to know how far this will go! Yet, as crazy as my imaginary example might be, couldn't you see people like Dorit supporting it? THAT'S what is the most terrifying, that there are real, influential people who would love to see this really happen. (the proof of vaccination in order to function in society....I just made up the rest for fun)

The FAA source, speaking on condition of anonymity explains that many of the airlines have, “had it with the anti-vaccination arguments and don’t want to be left with the guilt and partial responsibility when a preventable disease spreads by way of air travel.”


Real piece of journalist right there. just like the blogs the provaxer post, no real source, just fear mongering.

Hmm. With everyone required to carry vaccination records, it will be much harder to fudge whether vaxed people are catching and spreading the illnesses.

I can't quite see all the adults in the US lying down for this, frankly. Not even some of the fanatical pro-vaxers.

Exactly. I think when adults realize that for many of them this means they will be getting all those vaccines over again, this idea will quickly die.

FWIW, having to get an additional MMR booster because of lack of documentation is what made me question the thing to begin with. When I my the second shot in three years, I actually read the liability waiver I had to sign and was appalled at the list of possible side-effects. Years later, when I had my daughter, my attitude was not one of unquestioning compliance. So maybe forcing adults to re-up would have the opposite of the intended effect.

It's kind of amazing how quickly the American public can be whipped into hysteria. If I didn't have to live here, I might think it was entertaining to watch.

My big bad. It's all a satire. That's apparently a satire site.

Do you know what's absolutely pathetic, though?

I would have thought that posting peoples' addresses and arresting them for not vaccinating was satire, too.

We're in such a national state of hysteria that it's hard to tell the difference.

By the way, I love a good satire, but this one wasn't particularly funny.

I don't think this opinion piece is meant to be a joke at all:
Unvaccinated Families’ Addresses Should Be Made Public

http://time.com/3703769/vaccine-refu...els-addresses/



Along with sex offenders, now the militant, Nazi-wannabe provax want to publicly track vaccine refusers. ( I'm sure nobody here feels this way though...)

Is this legal with HIV/AIDS, any of the Hepatitis viruses, or any other disease a person actually has? No, so why on earth would it be acceptable to label non vaccinating families?



Insanity. Isn't this how genocidal wars begin?

The federal govt claims it cannot determine how many illegal aliens there are in this nation, yet they want to publish lists of non vaxers?

Where is HIPAA on this? Nonvaxers have not broken any law.

Those who have been convicted of sex crimes have their addresses published for a reason - they broke the law.
