The CDC has also recommended that international travelers be fully vaccinated before leaving the U.S.

“Fully vaccinated travelers are less likely to get and spread Covid-19. However, international travel poses additional risks, and even fully vaccinated travelers might be at increased risk for getting and possibly spreading some Covid-19 variants,” the agency said.

The U.S. Travel Association recently criticized Dr. Anthony Fauci for recommending a vaccine mandate for travelers traveling within the U.S. and has advised against vaccine mandates, but encouraged travelers to get shots.
