The U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has extended the requirement for non-U.S. citizen, non-immigrants to show proof of covid-19 injection in order to enter the country. This makes the U.S. one of the few remaining Western countries to uphold such a mandate.
The move comes despite the fact that the jabs do not prevent against contracting the virus. With the increasing rise of so-called “breakthrough cases,” studies are now showing that the injections actually increase the chances of contracting the virus.
The renewal of the U.S. border restrictions was announced November 4, and will expire on January 8, 2023. The current restrictions – which require visitors and temporary residents to show proof of covid-19 vaccination to enter the country – were due to expire on November 8.
While at time of writing the TSA covid-19 page lists only the border restrictions which expire on November 8, the Epoch Times reports (and links to) the updated TSA document.
Under the terms of the extended border restrictions, airline operators must ensure that passengers, prior to boarding, show paper or digital proof of having taken COVID injections, or provide documents detailing an exemption from such requirements.
The requirements align with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, which stipulate that a passenger must have had either one injection of a single-dose vaccine, or two of a double-dose injection. The injections must be at least 14 days prior to flying. (…)
Given the extension of the covid-19 injection mandate for the U.S. border, this means that passengers could be allowed to fly into the country even if they have the virus, so long as they also have taken the injections. Such a policy undermines the TSA’s purported aim of limiting the transmission and spread of COVID-19.
