I'm wondering what you guys think about this one. Did you know they are now selling bracelets with QR codes containing your vaccination information? It provides your full name, vaccination type, the date administered and by what provider. Is this a scary slippery slope or just convenient? Would you wear it?
Listen to Shannon Holly mornings on 94.3 The Point and download our free 94.3 The Point app.The ImmunaBand Vaccination Band is a bracelet that carries your vaccination information everywhere you go. The intention is to give everyone around you the public peace of mind that you have been vaxed and expedite your processing when you need to prove your status in various situations.This would be an easy way to prove your status if you're attending a concert, sporting event, or anywhere that requires you to be fully vaccinated (and with proof). In this way I can see it being a benefit instead of searching though your wallet looking for your vax card. You would be able to scan the QR code and go. It does feel like we are being tagged like some sort of experiment which creeps me out but we have proven to do anything for convenience (tracking devices in our cell phones, or having Alexa in our homes listening to us). I wondering how "big brother" it all is but I still do it...why? Because I'm tired and time is of the essence...anything that makes my life easier is an easy sell for me making me the perfect mark I suppose.Maybe this is no different than a diabetes identity bracelet? Maybe it would just make everyone at ease and keep things organized and moving along? Maybe it would help normalize the idea of getting vaxed? I'm curious what you think! Would you wear one of these?The ImmunaBand has been featured on CNN, Yahoo! Finance, The Washington Post and TMZ so it is getting more and more popular. It runs in the ballpark of $20 (I've seen prices vary by a few dollars from site to site). Here is the info from their website on how it works:
How to Access Your Vaccination Card from the Band
- Open the camera on any mobile device
- Point the camera at the QR code on the band
