UK prime minister set to ‘lead the way’ with vaccine passport scheme at upcoming G7 summit


LifeSite News: British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has signaled that the G7 summit, to be held in Cornwall on the southwestern coast of England from June 11 to June 13, will be a chance for the U.K. to “lead the way” in a worldwide effort to implement an internationally recognized COVID vaccine passport scheme.

The way of a fool is right in his own eyes,
But he who heeds counsel is wise. Proverbs 12:15

The summit, supposedly focused on uniting “leading democracies to help the world fight, and then build back better from coronavirus and create a greener, more prosperous future,” will also be used to “agree a common approach to verifying and sharing COVID Health Certificates across borders,” the Mail on Sunday reported.

The alleged benefit of an internationally recognized system of vaccine verification is to aid the beleaguered airline industry, hard-hit by lockdown restrictions and travel bans in countless countries across the globe. A summit document seen by the Mail on Sunday alleged that without such a system in place, the industry will become “paralysed” by bureaucracy, adding that an international system to “’verify that people have accurate tests or genuine vaccines” will overcome this apparently severe obstacle.

Johnson issued a call ahead of the summit, asking all G7 attendees “to make concrete commitments to vaccinate the entire world against coronavirus by the end of 2022,” according to a June 6 press release.
