Requiring the Maryland Department of Health to ensure that the Maryland MyIR Mobile immunization record service meets certain design requirements for its voluntary use as a vaccine passport for displaying COVID-19 vaccination information on a mobile device; etc.
why icm opposes SB839
- There is no Covid-19 vaccine currently available which effectively prevents infection or transmission of Covid-19. There is no public health justification for limiting access to any public spaces based on vaccination status.
- Vaccine passports have not reduced Covid-19 prevalence or mortality rates in populations where they have been implemented. Implementation of vaccine passports has interestingly had an inverse effect on vaccine uptake in several countries.
- Currently available scientific evidence indicates that universal indiscriminate vaccine mandates may increase prevalence and mortality of Covid-19 variants.
- Implementation of vaccine passports may have a negative economic impact on sole proprietors, local businesses, and local economies. Most importantly, vaccine passports violate the fundamental rights of citizens to medical privacy and individual autonomy, while failing to confer any demonstrable benefit to individuals or groups.
