Why you don’t need the ‘right’ vaccine to visit America: Aussie journalist says she travelled to the U.S. without once having her records checked

An Australian newsreader working in Tel Aviv has urged Aussies to get the widely available AstraZeneca Covid vaccine, saying it won’t limit their international travel.

There are concerns about America and some European countries not recognising the Australian-manufactured AstraZeneca vaccine, but journalist Sarah Williamson says her fellow countrymen don’t have to worry.

Williamson, who works for Israeli news channel i24 News, said on Monday she wasn’t even asked to show her vaccine records when she recently travelled to the U.S.

‘Yo Australia. If you’re concerned about not being able to travel to the U.S. if you get the AZ jab, I just went through two separate airports and nobody even asked if I was vaccinated. Simmer down guys,’ she wrote on Instagram.

It comes after Sarah slammed Australia’s lockdowns, earlier this month.

The 30-year-old journalist shared a post to Instagram, saying ‘brainwashed’ Aussies are ‘living in a totalitarian society’.

 ‘I never thought I would say this… I’m not proud to be Australian at the moment, considering the mindset of the government and the majority of the people living inside the country. I’m sorry,’ she wrote.

‘I’m well aware I’m about to receive a barrage of abuse by brainwashed Aussies. I’m sorry you feel this way,’ she continued.

‘I’m sorry you live in a totalitarian society.’
