what’s in a name? Should we abandon ‘vaccine passports’ for something more acceptable?

Americans are nearly four times more open to the term “vaccine verification” than to “vaccine passport,”

opinion was sharply divided along party lines, with 70% of Democrats for and 60% of Republicans against. 

When respondents were asked which of six terms for documentation would make them more likely to get vaccinated, they chose “verification” (40%) nearly twice as often as “certificate” (22%), with “credential” and “passport” lagging behind at at 11% each. Even more unpopular were “ticket” and “permit” (6% each), and “visa” (4%).
