The freedom to travel is a fundamental right and crucial for other protected rights like association and expression. We strongly urge you to oppose H.R. 4980 and H.R. 5204, which mandate vaccines for domestic travel. Vaccine mandate bills especially impact all airline workers and those who depend on the industry. Mandates further entrench socioeconomic disparities by disproportionally affecting marginalized communities who are the least vaccinated Americans. Airlines have followed many CDC-recommended guidelines to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. There are temperature screenings, intense cleanings, masked passengers, and cabin air that refreshes constantly. CNN has reported that experts say the “odds of catching COVID-19 while on a flight are actually relatively slim.” Vaccine mandate bills are unnecessary and un-American. They will hurt the airline industry and the entire economy. Please stand on the side of constitutional rights, jobs, and economic growth for Americans.
