Op-ed slams profit-driven corporations for turning people into walking QR codes through the deployment of vaccine passports
12/09/2021 // Mary Villareal // Views

Author Michelle Malkin slammed profit-driven corporations that crave for digital health data. In an op-ed, she noted that those corporations are hiding behind non-profit umbrella groups that pose as public servants.

Malkin wrote that vaccine passports are exploiting millions of people and turning them into walking QR codes in the name of fighting the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) to bring "normalcy" back.

This unprecedented worldwide "racket" rewards compliance and punishes autonomy.

Shady, profiteering entities involved in creating vaccine passports

In Colorado, the state government is promoting the use of the Smart Health Card, which allows users to verify and share their vaccination status. This same technology is being used in 12 U.S. states, including California, Washington State, Virginia, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and Oregon. It can also be used at CVS and Rite Aid pharmacies, Kaiser Permanente, UC Health, Walgreens, Walmart, Express Scripts and United Healthcare Services.

The Commons Project Foundation is the massive nonprofit entity responsible for this vaccine passport market. It claims that it "builds and operates digital platforms and services for the common good."

It also oversees the Common Trust Network, which in turn operates the global registry of organizations that issue the said passports. Paul Meyer, CEO of TCP, said that this allows people to "safely return to travel, work, school and life while protecting their data privacy."

The same organization also created and collaborated with the Vaccination Credential Initiative, which is a "voluntary coalition of public and private organizations" that is committed to "empowering individuals to gain access to their verifiable clinical information." The VCI also includes "a trustworthy and verifiable copy of their vaccination records in digital or paper form using open, interoperable standards."


Upon closer look, the steering group for this initiative is the who's who of Big Tech and Big Health corporations that are looking for new ways to profit off personal data – including Apple, Microsoft, Cerner, Amazon Web Services, Google, Epic, the Mayo Clinic, Oracle, Salesforce and others. (Related: Big Tech companies looking to "normalize" vaccine passports.)

It also includes something called the Mitre Corporation, which is a non-profit, Cold War-era conglomerate headquartered near the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and near the Deep State in McLean, Virginia, which then oversees billions of dollars worth of federally funded military research, homeland security, cybersecurity and the lucrative health data market.

Mitre was said to have raked in $1.8 billion in revenue in 2019, and boasts another $2 billion budget funded by the American taxpayers. It signed a $16.3 million contract with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help build an "enduring national capability to contain COVID-19."

Moreover, it has a $20 million joint partnership with the CDC on disease surveillance technology and services. This military-industrial alliance also brags ominously in its promotional materials, saying: "You may not know it, but Mitre touches your life most every day."

"This isn't about COVID-19 control. It's about mind control," Malkin wrote.

Vaccine passports in existence since the 19th century

Travelers already carry vaccine passports in the late 19th century. Back then, they often required passengers to provide evidence that they have been vaccinated from smallpox.

These are common at ports of entry such as New York's Ellis Island and San Francisco's Angel Island. People are also asked the same documents along the U.S. border with Canada or Mexico.

In 1910, an El Paso newspaper said that travelers needed to show one of three things to show that they have survived smallpox: "A vaccination certificate, a properly scarred arm or a pitted face."

Today, Americans are either looking ahead to life after COVID embracing electronic vaccination passports or questioning the necessity of this increasing invasion of one's privacy.
