"I don’t think it’s necessary," Reeves said about vaccine passports, "and I don’t think it’s a good thing to do in America."

Republican Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves is joining other conservatives in opposing a so-called vaccine passport program that would show proof that holders have been vaccinated against the coronavirus and that allow only those who have received a shot access to certain travel and places.
"I don’t think it’s necessary, and I don’t think it’s a good thing to do in America," Reeves said Sunday on CNN.
Reeves follows Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis, who issued an executive order Friday banning local and state government agencies and businesses from requiring people to show their vaccination status.
DeSantis said such measures would "reduce individual freedom" and "create two classes of citizens based on vaccination," according to The New York Times.
