Capitol Report: White House rules out requiring federal vaccine passport

The Biden administration on Tuesday said it won’t require Americans to have a vaccine passport, which are being developed to verify COVID-19 immunization status.

“There will be no federal vaccinations database and no federal mandate requiring everyone to obtain a single vaccination credential,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters.

As the Associated Press has explained, the so-called passports are typically an app with a code that verifies whether someone has been vaccinated or recently tested negative for COVID.

Some lawmakers are uncomfortable with the idea — on Monday, for example, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, a Republican, issued an executive order against vaccine passports, saying they infringe on citizens’ rights.

“Government should not require any Texan to show proof of vaccination and reveal private health information just to go about their daily lives,” Abbott said, as reported by the Hill.

Psaki made similar comments last week about there being no federal database and no requirement for a single credential.
