U.S. Taking ‘Very Close Look’ at Vaccine Passports

The United States is giving careful consideration to the use of vaccine passports for international travel.

On Friday, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was asked about vaccine passports on the ABC news program “Good Morning America” Friday, and replied that the government is taking “a very close look” at doing implementing its own.

“We’re taking a very close look at that,” he said.

The White House has previously said there would be no federal mandate for vaccine passports but that does not preclude a vaccine passport for a specific purpose such as international travel.

Such a vaccine passport will become necessary in order for U.S. citizens to verify their vaccination status when traveling abroad.   The European Union and some Asian governments are scrambling to put vaccine passports in place as well.
