COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Gov. Mike Parson says he won't require what are known as vaccine passports in Missouri.

But Parson told reporters Thursday that he's OK with private companies adopting them.

Vaccine passports are documentation that shows travelers have been vaccinated against COVID-19 or recently tested negative for the virus.

Technology companies and travel-related trade groups are developing and testing out vaccine passports to encourage travel.

Some Republican lawmakers in Missouri have raised concerns with the concept of health certificates or travel passes.

They say requiring the documents would infringe on people's right to travel and want to ban them.

  1. “he’s OK with private companies adopting them.”
    He should not be. A number of NAZIs were hung at Nuremburg for forcing participation in medical experiments. These vaccines are experimental. They do NOT have FDA approval. Only release for use in emergency. Which gives no party, public or private, the authority to force or coerce their use. It was considered a war crime. If a crime in war, it most certainly is in peace. Any government or business forcing or coercing their use is risking a lot of liability, and (see above) execution for crimes against humanity.
