In efforts to further enforce coronavirus rules and regulations, Joe Biden is considering a vaccine mandate for interstate travel.
As reported by the Associated Press:
Still, while more severe measures - such as mandating vaccines for interstate travel or changing how the federal government reimburses treatment for those who are unvaccinated and become ill with COVID-19 - have been discussed, the administration worried that they would be too polarizing for the moment.
Even though a measure of this magnitude appears to be too polarizing in the current moment, it’s being discussed.
Meanwhile, Biden has already required most federal works to provide proof of vaccination or succumb to weekly testing. Health workers at the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Health and Human Services will be required to get vaccinated, and the Pentagon announced that it intends to mandate vaccines for the military by next month.
“I think this is the godly thing to do,” Biden said. “Protect your brother and sister. That’s what this is about. It’s about protecting people.”
