A picture of the card isn't enough
Mr. Scratchy, I'm not sure how this important point, albeit off-topic, arose.
Here, I can report first-hand that both the Chicago Theatre Alliance and the Chicago Symphony require patrons to have "the real deal" - i.e. your VAX card, and a photo ID, available for admission to their events.
Apparently, COVID is endemic even amongst Canis Lupus - or at least those that stand on hind legs
Now next month in Salzburg, the "flimsy and fraudable" CDC VAX card, along with Passport, will be needed to enter Festival events. Additionally, their tickets now are identified by name - and all three documents best match (don't need a visit with the AR-15 toting Polizei). Not sure what has given rise to this positive ID requirements; security in general, COVID, or too many fraudulent tickets circulating.
Apparently unrestricted transferability of public event tickets is coming to an end - at least over there! Will "over here" be far behind?
Finally, to conclude this off topic rambling, you ought to see an EU VAX card. First it is on Yellow stock (as was a WHO VAX card I still have from the "1960 Family Trip to Europe") and is certified by the medical facility administering the shot. Ours, where the anti-VAX crowd can "just go to Ebay" and get the (to them) "nonsense" taken care of, are just some kind of joke.
