Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said Friday that the federal government is looking into whether it should require so-called vaccine passports for those coming into or out of the country.

“We’re taking a very close look,” Mayorkas said on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

He also said the federal government’s top priority is to “sure that any passport that we provide for vaccinations is accessible to all and that no one is disenfranchised.”

Mayorkas’s comments appear contradictory to those made last month by White House press secretary Jen Psaki who said the Biden administration did not support a federally organized vaccine passport.
