The Philadelphia-White House has been controversial as to whether it is necessary to carry a so-called “vaccine passport” to prove that it has been vaccinated against COVID-19.

Spokesman Jen Psaki said Tuesday that the government would not be involved in this or support the federal system that requires Americans to carry vaccine credentials.

But I could still see private companies doing this. In that case, Saki states that the government will protect the privacy of citizens and provide guidance to prevent these systems from being used improperly by citizens.

Dr. Allison Buttenheim, Penn Nursing, said this was one of the reasons why the decision to get vaccinated became political and that he expected at least some of the private sector to be vaccinated. I am.

“We already require healthcare professionals to get the flu vaccine. It is possible that the flu vaccine will be required first. Another setting that will be seen in the fall is that the university will instruct students to return to campus I think it’s something to do. There is a precedent for vaccination, “she said.

Some universities Including Rutgers has already announced This is a requirement.

Many Republicans oppose requiring vaccine passports in both the public and private sectors, so even if the federal government has adopted this hands-off approach, private companies have chosen it. If so, the discussion will continue.
