Essential and non-essential travelers entering the United States by crossing land borders will be required to show proof of vaccination to enter.
Beginning on January 22nd, government and emergency response officials and truck drivers will need to be fully vaccinated to enter the United States.
These new requirements now align with rules for essential travelers that went into effect earlier this month. Travelers that will be entering the United States using a ferry will also be required to present proof of full vaccination by January 22nd.
These rules were supposed to take effect on November 8th, but the Biden Administration decided to push it back two months to prevent disruptions for travelers.
In the United States, it is estimated that there are 47 million adults that are still unvaccinated against COVID-19, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
