bob213,

Thanks for sharing my favorite Ayn Rand quote:

NYS has its Excelsior Pass, but it is only good in NY.
If you got your vaccine in CVS Pharmacy they have a QR coded printable.

I guess it would help but way too easy to make or acquire counterfeit cards as of now. My vaccination card from CDC is easily forged or copied since they have no discernable differences than regular copier paper, maybe a bit thicker which is easy to attain at any office supply store.


That's what people think, but the vaccination records can be confirmed by health department records, and it could be a very costly mistake. It's a generally a bad idea to provide forged documents to any government agency since you can face fines or jail or both.


This couple was fined $20,000CAD ($16,000USD) each:

For not taking a vaccine that would cost them $0. Not sure they really did the risk/reward calculation on this one.

Just an FYI,
I have deleted or edited posts with political trolling, as well posts with references to them also had to be deleted.

All subsequent political and trolling posts will be deleted.

Canadians pretty much feel our numbers are too high. They are much lower than those south of the border. I'm not sure our border should be open to non essential traffic.

So this is like when countries require visitors be vaccinated against diseases like yellow fever, only different right?


Very much so.

We've been to several countries that require yellow fever vaccine (and we have it)...yet, we've never been asked to prove it. I'm sure at one time, they did check but it's really on the honor system that you have it and didn't fake having it.

I expect for a year or two, countries will be certain to check for it...then as things settle down, it will remain on the books but more and more often, they will forget to check for it.

I carry a photo copy of my paper signed by the nurse at the clinic. I carry photo ID with matching name and address. A person who can read can look at me, compare the photo, look at the name and address, phone the clinic, track down the nurse, if they think I forged ze papers…

Do I care if someone looks at this info with their eyes and lets me in the hockey game? No I don’t care.

Do I care if government requires I produce a government issue card with a chip or stripe that some private sports venue runs through a scanner for my “verification”? As a matter of fact, yes I do.

Agree. Good comparison.


I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be Douglas Adams

RV-less for now but our spirits are still on the open road.
