Mayorkas: U.S. Taking ‘a Very Close Look’ at Vaccine Passports for Travel

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said the United States is taking a “very close look” at the idea of requiring vaccine passports for travelers coming in and out of the U.S., according to reports.Speaking to ABC on Friday, the Homeland Security secretary appeared open to the concept of requiring a vaccine passport for international travelers. He appears to justify the idea with his devotion to ensuring that “the value of diversity, equity, and inclusion” are central in vaccine distribution. In other words, officials must ensure that “any passport that we provide for vaccinations is accessible to all and that no one is disenfranchised,” Mayorkas said.
