Cruising for the Bard
Cruise lines, eager to go, clash with Florida on vaccines
11.juin.2021

I want a vaccine "passport" listing my J&J covid shot. This is no different than requiring a yellow fever or malaria vaccination traveling in and out of many regions in the world.

I need one.

I don't want to be stranded on a cruise ship or in a port or on the wrong side of a border.

This is a necessity.

Presently countries have no entry allowed (Taiwan) or require medical insurance (Costa Rica), a negative test (most), quarantine (many). A vaccine passport is no different. Airlines and cruise ships are subject to international laws as well as the laws of the countries they come in and out of.

To me, the State of Florida is interrupting international commerce and the federal government needs to step in sooner than later. One option is to encourage all ports in the Caribbean (as this is the main area affected) to require a vaccine passport to disembark. Florida has NO say over what sovereign nations decide to protect their own populations.

The White House can do a diplomatic end-around or directly confront the anti-science obstructionists in various state houses by enforcing federal laws.

States like New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts with international flights could also adapt laws or make executive orders that reinforce this.

Flights and cruises most follow federal laws. It's time for the Feds to stand up.
