It's amazing how we have so easily slipped into a totalitarian mindset without any actual evidence at all. 
Showing vaccination certificates will become the equivalent of showing a pass in Apartheid South Africa or a yellow star for many of our family members. 

At the moment we know almost nothing about the long-term efficacy of available vaccines, their risks (in low risk people) in the real world,
whether they prevent transmission in any substantial way.. and a bunch of other things. A whole lot of science needs to be done before the yellow stars get handed out. 

The lessons from the last pandemics (for example involving Pandemrix) are largely undiscussed and many people never even know what even happened.  There were so many lessons that need learning from past experience not least of which the human and scientific ones.
