Do you have the “Key to NYC Pass?”
If you live in the Big Apple or plan to visit New York City in the future, you may be required to have the new city vaccine passport, the first of its kind to be implemented in the United States.
On Tuesday, New York City became the first city in America to mandate a vaccine passport when Mayor Bill de Blasio announced the “Key to NYC Pass,” which will be required beginning August 16 and be enforced starting Sept. 13.
“This is a miraculous place, literally filled with wonders. If you’re vaccinated, that’s gonna open up to you, you can open the door,” said de Blasio during a press conference on Tuesday.
Giving New Yorkers an ultimatum, the mayor said, “If you’re unvaccinated you will not be able to participate in many things.”
“It’s time for people to see vaccination as necessary to living a good, full, and healthy life,” he continued.
To enforce the city’s new mandatory vaccine passport, de Blasio said the city will begin inspecting businesses to ensure compliance in mid-September.
The measure appears to be a last-ditch effort to get New York City residents vaccinated after the city’s monetary incentives failed to compel a vast majority of New Yorkers to get the experimental COVID vaccine.
Currently, about 40 percent of NYC residents have yet to receive the vaccine, according to data from NYC Health.
Now, the mayor is resorting to tyrannical mandates that blatantly violate Americans’ rights and freedoms.
But, in order for the Key to NYC Pass to work, businesses have to require it and customers have to provide it. If they don’t, the vaccine passport will inevitably fail. Therefore, the city is facing a crossroads.
Although the NYC government is attempting a full power-grab, it is ultimately up to the people to decide whether they allow the government to do so.
New Yorkers: If you value your freedom, do not comply.
