Fauci Wants Vaccination Requirement to Fly

White House and President Biden's COVID Advisors are Considering It
 
WASHINGTON - Sept. 13, 2021 - PRLog -- Dr. Anthony Fauci, the White House chief medical adviser, has expressed his support for COVID-19 vaccination requirements for air travel, saying - "I would support that if you want to get on a plane and travel with other people that you should be vaccinate."

Meanwhile, several official White House sources has stated on the record that such a requirement has not be ruled out, notes public interest law professor John Banzhaf, who has been promoting the idea for weeks with the President's COVID advisors, and who spelled out the arguments they are considering in White House is Considering Requiring Vaccination to Fly; Will be Mandated For International Flights; Canada Already Has One (https://www.valuewalk.com/white-house-is-considering-requiring-vaccination-to-fly/).

This is very likely to occur because proof of vaccination will soon be a de facto requirement for international flights, and Canada has already adopted such a requirement, says Banzhaf, who proposed this tactic to the President's COVID advisors weeks ago - along with suggestions for using his executive authority over grants, and to require vaccination of federal workers, both of which have now occurred.

US Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy did not endorse the proposal now under active consideration because of concerns for "people, for example, if they have to travel in the case of emergency to see a relative who got sick."

But he may fail to appreciate that the same problem would occur if, in an "emergency," a flyer lost or misplaced his driver's license (including, soon, one with REAL-ID).

Moreover, unlike with a driver's license, an unvaccinated person suddenly needing to fly in an emergency can probably receive at least one shot with a wait of no more than an hour or two.

If the emergency involved travel abroad (e.g., a sick relative in Europe), many Americans may not have an up-to-date passport, and in any event would have to very quickly arrange a COVID test in order to fly, says Banzhaf, noting that a vaccine mandate to fly could provide for exceptions for true emergency situations.

He also noes that if vaccinations were required to fly, it might be possible to no longer require masks; a burden now imposed on the majority of passengers who are vaccinated by the small minority of flyers who are not.
