Fauci says the United States will consider the need for the vaccine for domestic travel

Fauci says the United States will consider the need for the vaccine for domestic travel

Government of To us Considers that people need to be vaccinated in order to be vaccinated Flights Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute for Families, Allergies and Infectious Diseases, said Monday (27).

Non-citizens currently arriving in the United States by air must be fully vaccinated, but vaccination for internal movement is not mandatory.

Fauci said expanding these requirements would be considered. “You have to ask yourself why you are making this request,” the doctor told MSNBC.

“If you’re demanding that people be vaccinated on flights coming into the country, that’s understandable. You do not want to bring more cases into the country. But if you’re talking about the need for vaccinations to board domestic flights, it’s still a need, I think it’s reasonable to consider,” he said. He thought.

The epidemiologist did not say he made the recommendation to President Biden, but he did point out that the need for the vaccine for air travel creates more impetus for the vaccine.

“If you make the vaccine a necessity, it is another incentive to vaccinate more people. I believe doing this on domestic flights should be taken seriously,” he said.

In an interview with ABC News, US President Joe Biden said that although the vaccine requirements for domestic flights have been considered, “he has received a recommendation that it is not required”.
