President Biden announces COVID vaccine requirement for travelers to US will be scrapped on May 11

Next Monday, the US government will stop requiring vaccinations for federal workers and foreign visitors.

As of May 11, when the Covid-related public health emergency ends, these regulations will no longer be in effect, the Biden Administration said on Monday evening.

Additionally, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) declared that the conditions would no longer apply to federally funded health systems and any remaining educators.

The Biden administration issued a statement that read, “We are in a different phase of our response to Covid-19 than we were when many of these requirements were put into place.”

These precautions are no longer required, it added.

The actions bring the US into line with the rest of the globe.

Few nations still require visitors to have received the Covid vaccine in order to enter, including Angola and Indonesia.

According to data supplied by the White House, hospital admissions and Covid fatalities have both decreased by roughly 91 percent and 95 percent, respectively, since January 2021.

Recent research has demonstrated that while vaccinations can reduce hospitalisation and mortality, they are less efficient at preventing viral spread.

According to a 2022 study that appeared in the New England Journal of Medicine, participants of the Pfizer vaccination only received nine percent protection against Omicron infection after 25 weeks.

This protection was initially increased by a booster shot to 67 percent, but after two weeks, it had decreased to 45 percent.

Decisions to maintain Covid-era regulations in place have previously been criticised by experts as being ‘out of sync’ with the rest of the globe.
