A poll conducted by insauga.com through Instagram Stories indicates most people in Mississauga are in favour of vaccine passports.

The poll shows 72 per cent of respondents like the idea of passports for those who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Twenty-eight per cent are against the idea.

Launched at 8 a.m. July 23, the question asked, “Would you support a vaccine passport?”

Of the 1,685 who responded, 1,215 voted “yes” and 470 voted “no.”

The issue of whether “vaccine passports” or forms showing “proof of vaccination” has come to the forefront recently as the pandemic appears to be subsiding and as businesses and travel are set for broader re-openings.

In the case of businesses, some say the passport would allow store owners to keep a tight watch over who would be allowed into their establishments.

As well, company owners would be able to decide if unvaccinated people would be welcomed into the workplace. This would be done to prevent others from getting COVID-19 which could force these places to close.

The goal of the passports, ultimately, is to force the unvaccinated to conform or risk being shutout from work, travel and shopping.
