Hawaii likely to tell anyone seeking to visit their Islands without a vaccine to pound sand.

"We have been focused on administering shots in arms. We've told the providers that they need to report on gross vaccinations provided so that we can report that information back to the federal government, but we didn't explicitly require that they enter the vaccination records into the system. So right now we don't have a comprehensive record of who has been vaccinated in the state."

This seems pretty dumb. But, I wonder how common this is.

Are there people who are terrified by lists of vaccinated people, the way some people are absolutely opposed to lists of gun owners?

This seems pretty dumb. But, I wonder how common this is.

I'm looking at my CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card right now. When you register for your first shot, they have you write your own name and birthdate on a card with no number or record whatsoever attached to it. They then place a sticker on the card indicating which vaccine you'll receive, it's lot and expiration, along with the location of your vaccination. They write the date and time of your next appointment for the 2nd shot and when registering for it, they place another sticker with the vital information for that shot on the card. Each sticker has a place for the date but I had to write that in myself.

It is more than obvious that the federal government was not interested in creating a comprehensive database with exact information on every person vaccinated, and most of the fed's concern now is the inevitable reality that vaccine cards/information will be used by non-governmental entities as a means of separating people into groups towards whatever benefit or detriment such identification entails.

COVID is a communicable disease - full stop. Responsible people and companies are well within their common sense rights and responsibility to protect themselves, their employees, and their customers from unnecessary exposure to a known pathogen if there is an easy means to keep from doing so. As more and more information continues to come forth underscoring the efficacy of the vaccines and believed immunity for those vaccinated, it is logical people who've been vaccinated will not want to be in close contact with those who haven't as more and more variants evolve due to those refusing to mitigate or vaccinate.

Proof of COVID vaccination will inevitably become a ticket for freer access for those having it regardless of what idiotic GOP governors try to do with executive orders. As a society, we're mandated specific vaccinations before children enter school and when travelers are headed to places and regions where specific diseases are common and vaccination protects from potential infection. This is no different. No one has the right to infect other people and place their lives and health at risk when simple preventative measures and actions will keep such spread from happening.

Not true. Hawaii requires a negative COVID test. Have family there now.

This is the crossroad of the GOP requiring ID to vote will intersect with "Muh Freedumb" crowd.
