Dr. Anthony Fauci said he would support a vaccine mandate for domestic air travel if Joe Biden imposed it on the nation.
When asked by ABC’s “This Week” host Jonathon Karl whether he would support Joe Biden imposing vaccine mandates to fly domestically, the White House chief medical officer indicated he would support it.
“Well, it depends on what you want to use it for. I mean, vaccine requirements for people coming in from other countries is to prevent newly infected people from getting in to the country,” Fauci said.

A vaccine requirement for a person getting on the plane is just another level of getting people to have a mechanism that would spur them to get vaccinated. Namely, you can’t get on a plane unless you’re vaccinated, which is just another one of the ways of getting requirements, whatever that might be,” he said, adding that a vaccine mandate would do nothing to improve safety on the aircraft.
Fauci also poured cold water on the idea of ever taking masks off on planes despite numerous airline CEOs recently claiming masks were ineffective.
“I think the idea of taking masks off, in my mind, is really not something we should even be considering, and that’s what we meant by it depends on what the goal of getting people vaccinated before they get on a domestic flight,” Fauci said.
Given the low number of deaths and hospitalizations from this new “Omicron” variant, it remains unclear as to why the Biden administration would impose harsher COVID restrictions on the American people.
Unless of course, that reason is more government control over your life.
