Biden Admin’s Response to Question on Domestic Travel Vaccine Mandate Sparks Serious Concern

The Biden administration has gone to incredible lengths to force the coronavirus vaccine on Americans.

A reporter asked White House deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre whether COVID-19 vaccines will be required for domestic travel within the U.S.

The spokeswoman replied, “Everything’s on the table.”

This response comes as a number of states and businesses are currently suing the Biden administration over the vaccine mandate for employees of companies with 100 or more workers.

A White House reporter said, “The U.S. is now accepting fully vaccinated travelers from countries that were previously restricted during the pandemic.”

“Given how rapidly the delta variant spread here within the United States over the summer, why are there still no vaccine or testing requirements for domestic travel?” she asked.

“We say this all the time: Everything’s on the table,” Jean-Pierre replied.

“We just don’t have any announcement to preview right now on this, so I don’t have anything more to share on the domestic travel,” she added.

The news comes as the country “reopens its international borders Monday to travelers from 33 countries who have proof of vaccination and a recent negative coronavirus test,” as The Washington Post reported.

Airlines are reportedly prepared for a surge in travel as families with international relatives seek to reunite after being apart for many months.

Most of the nations removed from restrictions were from Europe. The continent was considered a key area impacted by the pandemic.

The change also takes place as the Biden administration announced a sweeping employer COVID-19 vaccine mandate for businesses with 100 or more employees.

“Today, the Labor Department issued its rule requiring COVID-19 vaccinations for companies with 100 or more employees and HHS released its rule to ensure that health care workers are vaccinated,” Biden tweeted Thursday.

“Together, they will cover about 100 million Americans and help us beat COVID-19,” the president added.

The Thursday announcement was met with swift resistance, including lawsuits from business leaders and governors and attorneys general of conservative states.
