An Open Letter To The Vaccination Credential Initiative.

You have made an inappropriate and ill-considered decision:
to remove MyIR:
from your list of valid/verified SMART Health Card issuers:
As you know, MyIR has become the official recordkeeper for the immunization records maintained by eight government organizations (Arizona, DC, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Dakota, Washington, West Virginia), representing over 31 million people. So you are, in effect, denying millions of folks the opportunity to obtain the SMART Health Cards that would enable them to safely return to work, school and travel.
