Lawmakers vote to end air travel vaccine mandate

Friday, 09 Feb, 2023 0

US lawmakers voted to scrap the air travel vaccine mandate.

The U.S. House of Representatives bill passed 227 to 201 in favour of ending the requirement for foreign travelers to be fully jabbed;

The bill would still need to go through the Senate.

Last year the US dropped the need to test negative prior to travel but maintained the Covid vaccination requirement.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) still recommends full vaccinations for air travellers.

The U.S. Travel Association applauded the vote.

“The need for this requirement has long since passed, and we appreciate this bipartisan action to end this outdated policy,” it said.

“The U.S. is the only country that has maintained this policy.”

The White House said it plans to formally end the Cpvid public health emergency in May.

“As we approach the end of the public health emergency, we will review all relevant policies, including this one,” the White House said.
