Former presidential candidate Andrew Yang has called for people to be required to prove they’ve been vaccinated before entering venues by showing a bar code on their phones.
“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,” tweeted Yang.
Yang suggested that people could also be given bracelets before they’re allowed to “interact more freely,” while also suggesting those who don’t take the vaccine be denied entry to sports games and other events.
“Tough to have mass gatherings like concerts or ballgames without either mass adoption of the vaccine or a means of signaling,” said Yang.
