Last year, when the conspiracy crowd said that “vaccine passports” were in our future as therapeutics that work against the beer bug (and a lot of others) were thrown over for the promise of “vaccines,” the wider world scoffed.
“I would support that if you want to get on a plane and travel with other people that you should be vaccinated,” the White House chief medical adviser said in an interview with the Skimm podcast, The Hill reported.
Given that the airline pilots’ union has collectively refused to comply with mandates from their employers and that the shots are known to cause blood clots just the same as long hours in an airplane do, what, exactly, is the goal of requiring air travelers to be jabbed?
This is just one of the many carrots being used so that Americans will submit to being stuck.
On Sunday, US Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy defended the Biden administration not requiring proof of vaccination for air travel, saying that unvaccinated people need to be able to fly during emergencies.
“We know that when it comes to mandating vaccines for travel there are important issues around equity that would have to be worked out, to ensure that people, for example, if they have to travel in the case of emergency to see a relative who got sick, would be able to do that, even if you know they weren’t vaccinated,” he said.
So, in an emergency, one could fly.
