On Thursday, the European Union announced plans to move forward to the next phase of rolling out their version of controversial “immunity passports” across Europe. Representatives of the EU member states debated the roll out of the certificate on Wednesday and announced the results on Thursday morning. The vote was 540 yes, 119 no, and 31 abstentions. The implementation of the “EU Covid-19 certificate” is expected to happen in early June.
The EU COVID-19 certificate will be a digital and/or paper certificate with a QR code which allows anyone who has been fully vaccinated, has proof of a negative COVID-19 test, or has recovered from COVID-19, to travel across the European Union. So although these are often referred to as “immunity” passports, they do not necessarily represent immunity or even vaccine status since individuals can also use a negative COVID-19 test to receive one.
During Wednesday’s debate Members of Parliament called for setting a deadline for the program, ultimately voting that the system should not be in place longer than 12 months. They also voted in favor of changing the name from the Digital Green Certificate to the EU COVID-19 certificate.
Italian MEP Piernicola Pedicini warned against rushing the approval process of the certificates, stating “Haste is not a wise counsel.” He also raised concerns about the committee stage for the certificate legislation being skipped.
The next step of implementing the certificate involves negotiations between the European Parliament and the leaders of the 27 EU member states about how each nations will initiate the certificate system. Each member state must set up infrastructure to issue, verify, and store the certificates data. By June the so-called “EU gateway” will open up allowing member states to join the program.
During the lead up to the vote, MEPs argued that the certificate should not be used as a tool for discrimination. Rather, they argued, the certificate should be a tool for “facilitating freedom of movement”. Before Wednesday’s vote, Stella Kyriakides EU Commissioner for Health and Food Safety, stated that the certificate is “crucial to assist the Member States in the fight against the pandemic while allowing citizens to exercise their free movement rights in a coordinated and safe manner.”
However, the idea that the EU COVID-19 certificate grants people their right to move about freely is ridiculous at best, and horrifying at worst. The government – any government – does not grant the people their rights. Additionally, this certificate and similar vaccine passport schemes are explicitly about discriminating against certain people. Specifically, those who have yet to be or choose not to be vaccinated.
📢The new 🇪🇺 COVID-19 certificate must facilitate free movement without discrimination. MEPs demand:
➡️no quarantine for certificate holders
➡️compatibility with national initiatives

On Thursday the European Parliament noted that “holders of an EU COVID-19 certificate should not be subject to additional travel restrictions, such as quarantine, self-isolation or testing”. They go on to say that “to avoid discrimination against those not vaccinated and for economic reasons, EU countries should ‘ensure universal, accessible, timely and free of charge testing'”.
Once again, issuing a passport or certificate that only allows those who have met a specific medical condition the right to travel is discrimination. Of course, in the eyes of the EU making the tests free and readily available is their version of not discriminating. Those of you who don’t want to be vaccinated at all are not even given consideration.
Ciarán McCollum, a Belfast-based Northern Irish barrister, says the EU is being dishonest when it promises that the certificates will not be used to discriminate or as travel documents. McCollum says the new legislation would create a situation where guards at the open borders of the EU member states have to inspect individuals for certificates.
“As it’s put in Article 3(1), there will be “cross-border verification”, performed by the member state “authorities” mentioned in Article 9(2). In the absence of such checks, the certificates would be useless and the “universal framework” would not exist,” he wrote for the EU Observer. “With vaccinated Europeans travellers separated from non-vaccinated, infected from non-infected, and immune from non-immune—the DGC, if applied, would be a guarantee of discrimination within the EU.”
McCollum also notes that the Lisbon Court of Appeal and Administrative Court of Vienna have held that PCR testing is unreliable and cannot be relied on for determining infection. He argues this means the certificates “are useless as proof of whether you are infected, or can or cannot spread the virus.”
As TLAV has reported since July 2020, the push for vaccine passports is all part of the larger push for a “Great Reset” and the transformation of every industry on the planet. These passport schemes are only going to increase in the coming months.
In fact, The New York Times Travel section recently ran a piece breaking down all the places in the world with existing vaccine passports and apps. In Denmark, the Coronapas app allows customers who have been vaccinated or recovered from COVID-19 to enter bars, restaurants and museums. The “Green Pass” in Israel is already dividing up society between the vaccinated and unvaccinated, with only those with the pass allowed to access hotels, gyms, and theaters – theirs specifically disallowing natural immunity for compliance. Estonia and New York state have similar apps already in place.
From my July 2020 report:
“The predetermined path we are being led down is known as “The Great Reset” and was announced in early June by the World Economic Forum. Regular readers will remember that on October 18, 2019, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation partnered with the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security and the WEF on a high-level pandemic exercise known as Event 201. Event 201 simulated how the world would respond to a coronavirus pandemic which swept around the planet. The simulation imagined 65 million people dying, mass lock downs, quarantines, censorship of alternative viewpoints under the guise of fighting “disinformation,” and even floated the idea of arresting people who question the pandemic narrative.”
The World Economic Forum and associates have been pushing the idea of immunity/vaccine passports since last summer and the fact that these schemes are now reality is no coincidence. The fact that the European Commission, the executive branch of the EU, is partnered with the WEF is also no accident. In January, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen spoke at the WEF’s annual Davos week that was specifically dedicated to The Great Reset vision.
“Ladies and gentlemen, there is no better place than the World Economic Forum to find out about the major trends in our society,” von der Leyen said. “And this year, the World Economic Forum is once again asking the right questions with your initiative, Klaus, ‘The Great Reset’. We must learn from this crisis.”
While the WEF and the Gates Foundation coincidentally simulated a pandemic mere months before COVID-19 was the buzz of 2020, the European Union MEPs also seem to have a keen foresight and ability to predict the future. A document listed on the European Union’s website shows a 2019-2022 RoadMap on “Strengthening Cooperation Against Vaccine Preventable Diseases” which makes it clear that Europe’s highest legislative body had planned for years to develop some type of vaccine passport. The EU’s website details how the Road Map has been in development since December 2017.
In the Road Map, under a section titled “Actions” it reads:
“Examine the feasibility of developing a common vaccination card/passport for EU citizens (that takes into account potentially different national vaccination schedules and), that is compatible with electronic immunisation information systems and recognised”
There is also a chart that calls for a “Feasibility study for the development of a common EU vaccination card” from 2019 to 2021. As we approach June 2021 the roll out of vaccine passports across Europe it’s clear the roll out of such technology will happen even quicker than anticipated by the European Union.
The WEF’s plan for a “Great Reset” is international in scope. There will likely be no nation spared from the attempts to transform our world and remake it in the vision of the Predator Class. Time is short for those who wish to exercise their voices and speak against the loss of freedom of movement. We either speak up now and stop the Great Reset vision in favor of a Greater Reset, a People’s Reset, or get comfortable in our digital prisons.
