The U.S. government views COVID vaccinations to be a public good in preventing social diseases. Consequently, foreigners must be vaccinated in order to obtain US immigration benefits such as visas and green cards. US citizens and those who already have green cards do not fall under this requirement.
A waiver of the COVID vaccination is possible in order to receive immigration benefits. Here are the basic requirements:
- You oppose vaccinations in any form;
- Your objection is based on religious beliefs or moral convictions; and
- Your belief or conviction is sincere.
A vaccination waiver based on religious grounds must normally include your sincere declaration that you are opposed to vaccinations. But, your personal convictions alone are not enough without basing those convictions in scriptures or other religious precepts.
A similar approach applies to moral convictions. Moral convictions generally have no god-head, and yet there must be a moral foundation you identify which supports your claim that the need for a waiver is sincere and justified.
Essentially, your personal desires must be supported by other evidence which validates your claim, thereby overriding the stated public good of having our US population vaccinated.
