In the January 23rd 2021 edition of the Economist, the editors write in their Leader (opinion piece) article titled “The marathon of covid-19 vaccination”:
Lockdowns impose a burden on freedom and a heavy financial cost. Pressure will therefore mount for vaccinated people to be able to move around freely, even if at first they will be too few in number to make much difference to the economy. If governments ignore calls for “vaccine passports” to permit this, the vaccinated are likely to change their behaviour regardless. Some businesses may introduce informal systems.
I think the portion in bold should instead have been written this way:
If governments ignore calls for “vaccine passports” to be permitted, ...
I say this because there is an example sentence about the word "call" in the Oxford Advanced Dictionary Eighth Edition like this:
... calls for the minister to resign.
In this sentence, the minister is the subject to the verb ‘resign’.
So I think the first sentence may be wrong. But I'm not sure. I would be grateful if you could help me.
