Biden Admin Rules Russian Sputnik V COVID Vax Won’t Qualify for US Entry
The Daily Beast reports that the Biden Administration will require all non-citizen visitors traveling to the United States by air after November 8th to provide proof of COVID vaccination status to airline officials prior to boarding a flight. Administration officials also confirmed that those vaccinated with the Russian Sputnik V vaccine, will not qualify for entry.
Well, I guess despite what President Putin may argue, it appears that a Vodka, Pelmeni, and borscht concoction, really doesn’t combine to make a very effective COVID vaccine. Now, personally - I really don’t have a big issue with letting poorly vaccinated Russians visit, just as long as they promise to confine themselves to either Keokuk, Iowa, or the greater Cleveland metropolitan area.
Of course, it should come as very little surprise to anyone now that the Biden Administration has publicly declared they don’t approve of the Russian vaccine, that every anti-vax Trump supporter on planet earth will soon be demanding their “God-given right” to be immediately inoculated with Russia’s Sputnik V vaccine.
Anyway, putting all of that aside, I do have to admit this whole Russian travel ban sure smacks of some serious ingratitude on our part! I mean, after all the hard work, rubles, and effort Russia put into “assisting” us with our last two presidential elections - and this is how we repay them? Come on folks, how about showing President Putin a little love? After all, Russia’s vaccination rate is only at 32%, so he really needs it!

The Russian vaccine was one of the first ones out. Even the Russians said it shouldn't be taken by people over 60. I do not know if it was created in a similar way, similar science, to the big or not. Putin, at first wasn't going to take it, but finally did.
