Tony Blair renews his push for a global digital vaccine tracking system

In an appearance last week at the annual World Economic Forum (WEF) meeting in Davos, Switzerland, former United Kingdom Prime Minister Tony Blair renewed his push for a global digital vaccine tracking system.

Blair emphasized the importance of “technology and digital infrastructure” and the creation of a data collection system to track the vaccination or non-vaccination status of every person around the globe, and he called on the World Economic Forum, the World Trade Organization, and other global organizations to force the nations of the world to comply (via

“You need the data,” Blair said. “You need to know who’s been vaccinated and who hasn’t been. Some of the vaccines that will come on down the line will be multiple, there’ll be multiple shots. So, you’ve got to have, the reasons to do with the healthcare more generally, but certainly, for a pandemic or for…vaccines, you’ve got to have a proper digital infrastructure, and many countries don’t have that. In fact, most countries don’t have that.”

Blair continued by suggesting that his digital vaccination status surveillance dragnet should be pushed through by the WTO (an intergovernmental organization that regulates international trade), the WEF (an unelected global organization that seeks to “shape global, regional and industry agendas”), and intergovernmental forums such as the Group of Twenty (G20) and the Group of Seven (G7).

“Who are the people that can make this happen?” Blair said. “How do you get the right partnerships in place?…That should happen in the G20 particularly, I think, which is…G7 is an important forum, but the G20 is the broader forum…You’ve got to work out what is it that you want to achieve in order to make sure that any future pandemic is properly handled and what are the partnerships that you’re going to create in order to ensure that the answers you get are the right answers. And then you’re going to have the mechanisms of implementation. And those mechanisms will be partly through the formal institutions that you have, like the WTO, and they’ll also be through organizations like yours [the WEF] which…I think…have many advantages because they don’t get landed with the same bureaucracy and frankly small pea politics around them.” (Emphasis mine)

This is merely the latest push by Tony Blair for a digital surveillance infrastructure and a global digital vaccine tracking system.

Speaking at the virtual CogX technology conference in June 2020, Blair endorsed the concept of a digital COVID vaccine passport, and he called increased surveillance a “price worth paying” and “natural evolution” to control the “daily life” of citizens around the world:

“You can create a digital ID today that is much more easily protected so you can deal with a lot of the privacy and surveillance issues that worry people.

“It is a natural evolution of the way that we are going to use technology in any event to transact daily life and this Covid crisis gives an additional reason for doing that.

“I think people’s disease status – have they been tested, what is the result of that test and have they had the disease, do they have the disease – unless you are able to record some of this data in a way people can use, it is going to be difficult to go back to anything like a near normal in things like transport.

“If you are going to start international travel again, how can you do that unless people can be easily tested and have some record of that test?

There has always been a good case for introducing some form of digital ID, but I think that case is even more powerful today.” (Emphasis mine)

Blair acknowledged at the time that digital ID card technology might disenfranchise people uncomfortable with using it but said this could be addressed through training and education. “That digital divide between those that are familiar and can use the new technology well and those who can’t is obviously going to be a big source of difficulty.”

Tony Blair’s suggestion that the G20 can “make this happen” shouldn’t be taken lightly, especially when we consider the embrace by Western nations of liberty-killing programs aimed at COVID “misinformation.”

During the recent G20 summit held in Bali, Indonesia, leaders signed a declaration calling for the censorship of so-called disinformation, and Joe Biden endorsed it by publishing it on the White House website. The G20 Bali Leaders’ Declaration mainly focused on climate change and Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs), but they linked SDGs with online censorship.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the transformation of the digital ecosystem and digital economy. We recognize the importance of digital transformation in reaching the SDGs.”

The declaration also states that for there to be “trust in the digital economy,” leaders needed to “create an enabling, inclusive, open, fair and non-discriminatory digital economy that fosters the application of new technologies, allows businesses and entrepreneurs to thrive, and protects and empowers consumers.”

“We acknowledge the importance to counter disinformation campaigns, cyber threats, online abuse, and ensuring security in connectivity infrastructure.”

It should also be noted that Joe Biden has already launched a host of far-left “solutions” in the name of COVID that are turning America into a defacto police state. Biden also appointed John Kerry as his climate czar who, as the official representative of his administration, spoke at a panel discussion hosted by the World Economic Forum in 2020 where he confirmed his boss’s commitment to The Great Reset as the solution to the ills facing the planet.

From the very beginning of COVID hysteria, the so-called pandemic has been used by tyrants to destroy liberty and create a new socialist state and the New World Order. In addition, a plan known as The Great Reset has been launched by the World Economic Forum designed to accomplish these goals.

The primary objective of World Economic Forum — now with help from the United Nations and Agenda 2030 — is the creation of a global “technocracy” that requires the close cooperation between the heads of the digital industry and of governments. This technology isn’t meant to serve the improvement of the conditions of the people. Instead, it submits the individual to the tyranny of a technocratic state where “the experts know better.”

And this is why former United Kingdom Prime Minister Tony Blair appeared last week at the annual World Economic Forum to renew his push for a global digital vaccine tracking system.
