THERE will not be a federal "vaccine passport" for the whole nation, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Tuesday, just says after Florida and Texas banned the passports from their states.
"The government is not now, nor will we be supporting a system that requires Americans to carry a credential," Psaki told reporters.
"There will be no federal vaccinations database and no federal mandate requiring everyone to obtain a single vaccination credential," she continued during a briefing.
"Our interest is very simple from the federal government, which is American's privacy and rights should be protected so that these systems are not used against people unfairly," Psaki ended.
The Biden Administration has made it clear that it would defer to private companies should they want to implement some kind of verification of vaccines or a passport system.
Should that be the case, the federal government will provide guidance on privacy concerns relating to the coronavirus vaccines.
