Report: US May Require Visitors To Be Vaccinated

August 5, 2021 | 13 Comments

The United States is reportedly considering a plan to require most foreign visitors to be vaccinated, according to reports from major international and US media outlets including the Associated Press, CNN, Reuters, and the New York Times.

A report from Reuters said, “The Biden administration is developing a plan to require nearly all foreign visitors to the United States to be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 as part of eventually lifting travel restrictions that bar much of the world from entering the United States, a White House official told Reuters on Wednesday.”

The Associated Press report, “No timeline has yet been determined, as interagency working groups study how and when to safely move toward resuming normal travel. Eventually all foreign citizens entering the country, with some limited exceptions, are expected to need to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to enter the U.S.”

The New York Times report, “The Biden administration is developing plans to require all foreign travelers to the United States to be vaccinated against Covid-19, with limited exceptions, according to an administration official with knowledge of the developing policy.”

The NY Times added that the plan “will be part of a new system to be put in place after the current restrictions on travel into the country are lifted, but officials have yet to determine when that might be done.”

CNN report, “The Biden administration is developing a plan to mandate vaccinations for almost all foreign visitors to the US, a White House official confirmed to CNN on Wednesday, though some exceptions are expected.

“Officials are still in the early phases of developing the plan and an announcement is not imminent. There is no imminent change to the current travel restrictions in place because of the highly contagious Delta variant currently circulating around the world, an official cautioned.”

    Understandable. Most countries will likely transition to this.

  2. LOL (original) says:

    Well we’re at it how about stopping US people with STDs coming here.

      False equivalence is false.

      • LOL (original) says:

        No it’s not. It is how most std have been introduced here. Oh and by the way seems like my news sources have been right CDC saying booster shoot and that vaccinated people carry a larger viral load that originally though and oh reason vaccinated people are being asked to where masks again it to protect others from them. So you are in effect what you called the un vaccinated a how did you put it right you called others plague rats welcome to the club.

        • sandgrownan says:

          It’s impossible to parse such a random jumble of misspelled words. The only thing that would make your rant better, would be if you did “an Alvin” and typed it all in CAPS.

          Try again.

            You should get that checked mate. For your own good and the good of Bermuda.

    about time ..hurry up!

  4. trufth says:

    Won’t happen until it is an FDA approved vaccine.

    After that, yes, it will be legal to require jabs, but I’m not sure it will actually ever happen.

  5. Reg says:

    CNN just fired three employees for going into the office unvaccinated.

    Its closing in, and all you who have elected to not vaccinate will have a small world to match your small mind.

    Soon you won’t be going anywhere.

    • Pat-Rice says:

      It will be the ex-vaccinated spreading it as no one is truly monitoring the expiration of individual immunity.

      While some are just getting their shots, others are wearing off.

      Russian Roulette!

      The cause for the spread of the new variants is more likely the vaccinated.

      But we usually have the experts and the powerful leading the unsuspecting to hell in a basket.

    This key board is small what can I say.

    LOL facts do not support your conclusions . You still think we can get back to normal. You’re news sorces are still gutter trash.
    Ps this virus has animal reservoirs so unless you are gonna kill every cat,dog and rodent we will be here every winter from now on. Ever notice the flu goes waway in summer. This should have too except we are vacinating people and more than a few break thoughs have occurred. You think your like Obama having a no mask 60th birthday with 700 people. Small gathering right. Trust you are not as sophisticated, infact who are no one just like the rest. Feel that brother rat.
