There are very few things that elicit an absolute negative response from me. But having any kind of record microchipped under my skin is an absolute no from me.

Just no. No to implanting a microchip that will allow a police officer to scan me for my driver's license. No to implanting a microchip that will allow doctors to access my medical records.No to implanting a microchip that will act as my debit card. And no to implanting my COVID vaccination card on my body.

And I don't give a damn if it's perfectly safe, or the most convenient way to pay for my Little Debbie Swiss Cake Rolls at the Murphy Mart.

KTVO TV reports that a Swedish company is presenting this as a possible way to carry around your COVID vaccination card.

KTVO TV's story on the chip explains the process:

A microchip, about the size of a grain of rice, can be embedded under a person's skin, either under the arm or between the pointer finger and thumb, according to Sjöblad during his appearance on a Tech2025 Webinar. After the chip is implanted, data such as a vaccine passport can be stored on it using NFC-compatible devices.

Sjöblad is Chief Disruption Officer Hannes Sjöblad of Epictenter, the company that developed the tech. He goes on to talk about the body being the next platform for tech. He believes it will happen in five to ten years and cites the growth of wearable tech and the attraction of not needing to carry around a wallet or purse.

I don't know. It's one thing to wear an Apple Watch or pay for stuff through your cell phone. Even those wearable tech glasses that are like an interactive computer screen I get. I just draw the line at injecting some microchip in my body.

Sure, there are things that an implanted microchip might make simpler. Like paramedics accessing someone's health records in an emergency. Yet where does it stop? And how does it not become some big-government thing? I'm not one to buy into a lot of conspiracies. But I don't want the State of Missouri or the U.S. Government implanting anything in me, period.

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest. The 2020 County Health Rankings values were calculated using mortality counts from the 2016-2018 National Center for Health Statistics. The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.
