Introducing so-called ‘vaccine passports’ for domestic use would establish a two-tier system.
Vaccine passports will discriminate against those who cannot have the vaccine, either for health reasons or because they are not old enough.
And no vaccine has yet been authorised for use in children and adolescents.
Whilst they may be inevitable for international travel, as liberals we must be wary of creating a two-tier system of rights here at home.
What’s more, countries like Australia, Taiwan and New Zealand have shown it's possible to lift the restrictions on our liberties with robust public health interventions to keep the virus under control.
The fairest way to lift restrictions and to make lockdowns a thing of the past is to keep cases low and get as many people vaccinated as possible.
