Ticketmaster Exploring COVID VACCINE REQUIREMENT at Point of Sale
In what’s likely to be the biggest HIPPA violation in modern history, as well as fan to the flames of all those anti-vaccine proponents, the largest ticket-sales company in the world wants to sync up with our healthcare plans to make sure we have COVID-19 vaccines. Ticketmaster is looking into ways to integrate its ticket sales system with COVID-19 vaccine verification processes.
So yes, under the concept, if you want to go see Wu Tang Clan, the system will flag you if you aren’t vaccine compliant and you’ll be denied the sale. Ticketmaster believes this strategy would help mitigate the spread of COVID. If they can sync up with third party healthcare providers, they’ll be able to accomplish this feat in spades. Of course, Ticketmaster is often the source of disgruntled concert ticket buyers, which is likely to be a focal point as the company moves forward with attempting to integrate our private healthcare data.
This breaking news, first reported by Billboard, comes on the heels of pharmaceutical giant Pfizer claiming they’ve developed a vaccine.
If the “new normal” includes vaccine verifications and giant corporations holding access to our personal healthcare information, it’s likely to draw an extreme amount of blowback. Privacy advocates aren’t likely to appreciate these developments.
