Tony Blair, former British Prime Minister, said that global “digital infrastructures” are needed to monitor who is vaccinated as he predicted a “slew” of new vaccines to be introduced to the world in the next few years.
“You need the data, you need to know who has been vaccinated and who hasn’t been. Some of the vaccines that come online will be multiple shots… so you’ve got to have a proper digital infrastructure and most countries don’t have that,” Blair said at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
Brexit leader Nigel Farage responded to Blair’s comments: “He wants us to have multiple shots and for all of it to be digitized so the state knows exactly what our status is, pure evil!”
