Travelers flying to the United States will still require proof of Covid vaccination within 2023 — making the united states the only country in the West to stick by the failing plan.
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has extended the principle, which only applies to non-US citizens, until at least January 8 next year to ‘ limit the risk of Covid-19, including variants of the virus’.
But there is a growing acceptance among specialists that Covid vaccines – while highly effective at avoiding severe illness – do not stop infections very well.
Dr Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), admitted earlier this year they shots ‘ can’t avoid transmission anymore’.
Yet given that November 2021, non-US residents entering America have had to deliver proof of Covid vaccination.
The CDC identifies fully vaccinated as having an accepted single-dose vaccine, or even both doses of an approved two-dose series, at least two weeks ago. A booster dosage is not needed.
Most major Traditional western nations such as the UK, Italy and Germany, have already lowered these types of recommendations.
The countries still needing Covid vaccination to get into are: China, Angola, Libya, Ghana, Cameroon, Liberia, Yemen, Indonesia, Pakistan, Azerbaijan plus Turkmenistan.
The particular TSA announcement said it had been renewing the policy to ‘ limit the risk that Covid-19… is introduced, carried, and spread into plus throughout the United States’.
