The future of air travel could include the requirement of a digital “coronavirus vaccine” passport.
Nationally syndicated radio host Todd Starnes questioned the possibility, requiring proof of a coronavirus vaccine or testing negative for the virus.
“What are we going to have a digital chip in us? This is like the mark of the beast stuff right here,” Starnes said on the Todd Starnes Radio Show Wednesday.

“The current diverse and fragmented digital health credentials used to implement different countries’ air travel testing requirements risk causing confusion, reducing compliance, and increasing fraud,” the letter from the airlines said.
New York has already tested this system out at sporting events using a digital QR code system called the “Excelsior Pass.”
Goodness, is it even worth it to fly if it’ll be that much trouble? I might just have to take the 10-hour car ride.
