The whole concept of a covid pass infuriates me.
At current vaccination rates, I doubt I will even be able to get vaccinated until early 2022.
Only 7% of the population in Denmark has been vaccinated. So you're penalizing 93% because they weren't in a specific group of people literally sorted by discriminating parameters.
Sure, they say you can just get tested and use that as proof within a short period of time.
But that requires you to plan ahead 2-3 days, because it take time to get results on and the test can get lost. I wouldn't be able to guarantee that I could participate in something with less than 3 days of given notice.
That's a serious difference, which will prevent me from doing many things in the next year and a half.
And this is before we even get to the ridiculous notion of this being safe.
Because it's presented like you can just go back to normal as long as you provide this pass.
But testing negative a few days ago does not mean you're negative today. And even being vaccinated you may still be a carrier, putting every unvaccinated-but-tested-negative person at risk.
It's just overall ridiculous to me. It's not fair and it's not safe with our current knowledge of vaccine effects.
I am actually less grumpy about this today.
They officially require a test for everyone now, vaccinated or not, which solves my entire gripe with the idea.
No social discrimination, reduced risk from unknown factors, and an overall fairer policy.
