Tickets to Florida punk show are $18, or $999 if you haven't been vaccinated

Anti-vaxxers and covidiots should get used to things like this. If they want to live with their delusions and conspiracy theories that endanger everyone there will be consequences.

love it, only thing is, how are they going to verify it? the stupid forms are forged and available online, i hear.

Until we get proper vaccine passes/passports, people are going to cheat. There are stopgaps (e.g. signed consent forms as with this L.A. bar) but full verification is several months off.

I think the real impact of this policy has less to do with protecting concertgoers from people willing to cheat and lie about their vaccination status than his has to do with sending a clear message: “If you aren’t willing to get yourself vaccinated then you are not welcome here.”

And the proof is… oh, the “honor system”.

I’m seeing stores now with signs like “If we see you without a mask, we will assume you are vaccinated”.
Uh, good luck with that!

Again, the concert promoter isn’t really expecting to catch anyone who lies about being vaccinated. The point is to make willfully unvaccinated people feel unwelcome. Which they damn well should be.

yeah, for sure. like the places that had signs that say “if we tell you you have to wear your mask, the fine is $25, and if we have to explain why we have a mask policy, an additional $175 fee gets added to that.”

you can just bet that anti-vaxx jerks are going to try and get in anyway with forged documents… just wondering if they were going to try to enforce it somehow, or just hope that the sticker shock would scare people off.

Fair by any metric, or calculus if need be.

Punk in St. Pete? It better be Club Detroit.

Or next door at Janus if they’re having something interesting there.

Does the $999 include access to a “VIP” seating area?

Oh yeah! Charging $999 will prevent the purchaser from spreading covid at the concert? /s

by Florida law (per DeSantis of course) you can’t require vaccination to attend an event. This is a clever way around that, or at least to protest that

k just saw the /s but I think some people don’t know the FL law they’re circumventing

They missed a great opportunity to make the unvaccinated tickets 666.66.

Given that the only evidence people have is the paper card, and paper cards are easy to counterfeit, I can’t see any way to make a secure vaccine passport. I would love to be proven wrong.

So does this get around the Florida governor’s mandate that you cannot require a vaccine passport? Because they most assuredly are not requiring a vaccine passport.

true.
that (blatantly unconstitutional) “law” is also why MoRon DeSantis is demanding that private enterprise like cruise lines cannot enforce vaccine mandates (vax passports) on their passengers in order to sail under CDC guidelines in a safe manner.
this coming from our very own “little dictator” RonDon, a supposed “invisible hand of the free market” kinda business-friendly repugnican, that shows exactly how craven, hypocritical and not just lying but outright bullshitting their pronouncements are - the difference being a liar knows the truth, yet tells the lie, hoping to fool some folk, the bullshitter cares not one bit about the truth and advances their narrative in full disregard for any truth knowing it will influence the gullible.
MoRon is a BULLSHITTER
ETA:

exactly. welcome to Florida-da and the Tallahassee Bullshit. now go and spend lots of $$$ at Disney because we conveniently loop-holed theme parks from this legislation!
y’all come back now!
