We need a system that works. Here are five requirements for such a system.
1. First, it needs to be accurate.
2. Second, it needs to be secure and maintain privacy.
3. Third, there must be multiple options for people to retrieve and voluntarily present their vaccination status.
4. Fourth, the system needs to be accessible in real time, such as when people are going through airport security.
5. Fifth, the system should be used to verify Covid vaccination alone.
FROM THE WASHINGTON POST REGARDING DENMARK”
“Danes trusted government and health authorities to make responsible and competent decisions to fight the pandemic, which for the most part they did. The Danish government and authorities in turn trusted the people of Denmark to behave responsibly and follow the guidelines.“…Vaccination rates are high — 86 percent of all eligible citizens 12 and older have received at least one shot, and 95 percent of people 50 and older are fully vaccinated…Denmark’s death toll during the pandemic was only 450 people per million citizens, compared to 1,982 per million in the United States…Denmark initially paused the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine and later removed both the AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson vaccines from the public vaccine program, donating 3 million spare vaccines to developing countries…In the meantime, a core part of the solution to keep the virus under control was mass testing. At the peak, in the spring of 2021, Denmark performed 4 million tests (75 per 100 citizens) a week. And Danish authorities promoted compliance with testing and other covid-19 guidelines as a moral obligation — to put it simply, as the right thing to do for each other, building upon the collective approach to beating the pandemic…Danes did not appear to resort to blaming and shaming to keep each other in line. In other words, most people followed the advice of the authorities and didn’t take it upon themselves to police others…Denmark was in a favorable position to deal with a pandemic, as Danish political parties have a rich history of working together… initially 80 percent of Danes felt their leaders were united against the coronavirus…In part, this common understanding was facilitated by a general commitment among political elites to follow the science, including medical research, epidemic modeling, economics and behavioral science …”
