Intelligence Squared U.S.

Will you need a digital passport to prove you’ve been vaccinated the next time you try to board a flight or get into a concert? The idea is already being tested in Israel and governments around the world -- including the Biden administration -- are exploring what vaccine credentials might look like. For some, these digital tools are a golden ticket back to “normal” life. But for others, these tools raise dire concerns about privacy, civil rights, and equitable access. In this episode of Agree to Disagree, John Donvan sits with Peter Baldwin, history professor from UCLA, and Jay Stanley, senior policy analyst at ACLU, to debate the future of vaccine passports.

Each episode of "Intelligence Squared U.S." presents a debate that aims to enlighten, entertain and inform. Listen Sunday, June 6 at 7 p.m. on WRVO, on-air and online.
