Sen. Rick Scott Introduces Freedom to Fly Act Banning TSA from Requiring Vaccine Passports

June 2, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott introduced the Freedom to Fly Act, which would prohibit the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) from requiring Americans to show proof of vaccination or produce a vaccine passport for domestic flights and protect the privacy of personal health information.


Senator Rick Scott said, “Americans are working hard to recover from the devastation of COVID-19 and travel is critical to getting our economy fully re-opened. While I continue to encourage everyone who wants one to get the vaccine, the federal government has no business requiring travelers to turn over their personal medical information to catch a flight. My Freedom to Fly Act ensures families in Florida and across the country can travel freely and without the ridiculous government bureaucracy created by vaccine passports.”
