Rejected petition Stop the use of vaccine passports. It is an authoritarian policy and a civil liberty issue.
Vaccines do not affect transmission and the vaccine rate in Wales has well exceeded the rate scientifically identified for herd immunity to be reached. This information could be used to people's detriment and in a discriminatory manner. Vaccine passports infringe on citizens right to privacy, autonomy and freedom.
