An expert in the area of health law, Professor Efthimios Parasidis was recently quoted in an article by NPR titled, “Would You Use An App To Verify Your Vaccine Status? The Idea Is Here To Stay.”

“There must be a fair balance between public health, individual choice and other aspects of society and health privacy,” said Parasidis.

He says there are several ways employers, event venues, cruise lines or airlines could help ensure a safe environment and still give people choices. “It may be acceptable to have people show either proof of vaccination, proof of a negative test or proof of a recent episode with COVID,” Parasidis added. “There are a lot of different options.”
