As COVID-19 vaccine distribution continues in the United States, several initiatives to create “vaccine passports” are in the works.

Once rolled out, these passports could be a standardized means of proving inoculation. However, the concept has received some backlash: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis spoke out against the passports before signing an executive order forbidding local businesses from requiring them. Now, Dr. Anthony Fauci has shared the federal government’s role.

According to Axios, Fauci has stated that the federal government will not require the use of vaccine passports. Fauci explained, “I doubt that the federal government will be the main mover of a vaccine passport concept.” Instead, individual business or schools may require the passports for entry.

Fauci adds that while the federal government won’t mandate the passports, it “may be involved in making sure things are done fairly and equitably.”
