Ticketmaster America’s largest live event box office is putting a plan together that the CCP would be proud of.
They told us a few months ago not to worry about this, it will never happen. Well, they are at least going to try and make it happen.
Since the announcement that Pfizer has created a vaccine that is 90% effective against the virus and Dr. Fauci (who’s now turned into Mr. Positive) has declared the pandemic will end soon America’s largest box office is paving the way for digital vaccination records.
Want to go to a concert? A Baseball game? Get on an airplane? They’ll need to scan your papers/phone first.
Ticketmaster gave billboard magazine the exclusive on how their framework would work.
Many details of the plan, which is still in development phase, will rely on three separate components — the Ticketmaster digital ticket app, third party health information companies like CLEAR Health Pass or IBM’s Digital Health Pass and testing and vaccine distribution providers like Labcorp and the CVS Minute Clinic.
Here’s how it would work, if approved: After purchasing a ticket for a concert, fans would need to verify that they have already been vaccinated (which would provide approximately one year of COVID-19 protection) or test negative for coronavirus approximately 24 to 72 hours prior to the concert. The length of coverage a test would provide would be governed by regional health authorities — if attendees of a Friday night concert had to be tested 48 hours in advance, most could start the testing process the day before the event. If it was a 24-hour window, most people would likely be tested the same day of the event at a lab or a health clinic.
Once the test was complete, the fan would instruct the lab to deliver the results to their health pass company, like CLEAR or IBM. If the tests were negative, or the fan was vaccinated, the health pass company would verify the attendee’s COVID-19 status to Ticketmaster, which would then issue the fan the credentials needed to access the event. If a fan tested positive or didn’t take a test to verify their status, they would not be granted access to the event. There are still many details to work out, but the goal of the program is for fans to take care of vaccines and testing prior to the concert and not show up hoping to be tested onsite.
Ticketmaster claims they will not have access to fans’ medical records and would only receive a verification if a fan is cleared to attend the event.
The FDA has not approved any third-party companies to provide results to companies like Ticketmaster, however, the companies president Mark Yovich expects airlines, employers, and theme parks to follow the same framework.
It would be important to remember that Disney World has been open since early summer and there have been almost no issues. This is merely a power grab to get our data and take away our civil liberties.
The framework would still have some legal hurdles to jump through and regulations could vary between states. But you can probably bet that in New York and California it’s going to look more like China than America.
Wat to go to the mall, scan your phone, want to attend your kid’s school event, scan your phone, do you wish to travel on a plan, scan your phone.
You can see how far they can take this in some areas of the country.
We’ve already seen it now with lockdown orders in Michigan, California, and New York.
