President Joe Biden signed an executive order on Thursday which may be the precursor to requiring proof of vaccination for air travel.
The executive order was entitled “Promoting COVID-19 Safety in Domestic and International Travel.” Section 5 ‘International Travel’ subsection ‘e’ the order read:
“International Certificates of Vaccination or Prophylaxis. Consistent with applicable law, the Secretary of State, the Secretary of HHS, and the Secretary of Homeland Security (including through the Administrator of the TSA), in coordination with any relevant international organizations, shall assess the feasibility of linking COVID-19 vaccination to International Certificates of Vaccination or Prophylaxis (ICVP) and producing electronic versions of ICVPs.”
The order also called for “agencies may impose additional public health measures for domestic travel.”
The order also mandates masks on airplanes, trains, ferries, ships, bus services and inside airports.
