‘Like a bar code’: Andrew Yang calls for way to show proof of someone’s vaccination

Former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang is calling for a system people can use to provide proof that they have been vaccinated for COVID-19, suggesting something “like a bar code they can download to their phone” would make it easier to safely congregate.

Yang, whose campaign for the White House was based on a platform calling for universal basic income, tweeted Friday, “Is there a way for someone to easily show that they have been vaccinated – like a bar code they can download to their phone? There ought to be.”

He argued, “Tough to have mass gatherings like concerts or ballgames without either mass adoption of the vaccine or a means of signaling.”

The businessman went on to say, “I’ve been tested at a photo shoot or interview and gotten a bracelet showing I was negative. Then we could interact more freely.”

Here’s Yang’s tweet:

Here are some responses:

It’s amazing that that Yang would say such a thing.

Of course, the liberal media pretty much ignored it for obvious reasons. Yang is a Democrat.
