The US administration still does not intend to introduce coronavirus vaccination passports in the country amid new recommendations from the medical regulator that allow fully vaccinated residents of the country to no longer wear masks, even indoors. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki stated this at a regular briefing for journalists.
“This [new recommendation] has not changed our view that the federal government will not take on this role [to implement vaccination passports]. The private sector can do this. And this may encourage the private sector to take action, and we believe that it would be appropriate for them to do so,” the White House official said. On Friday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention allowed residents fully vaccinated against the coronavirus to wear no longer protective masks, even indoors. US President Joe Biden also announced this. However, many Americans, even those who are fully vaccinated, are afraid to give them up for now.
