Authorities in some US states have increased the requirements to receive the covid-19 vaccine to guarantee access to local residents.

Vaccination for covid-19 has generated a phenomenon that several US states have seen as a threat: “vaccine tourism.”

Florida, California, New York and Texas are some of the states that have begun to take measures to prevent travelers, whether from other parts of the country or foreigners, from getting the limited doses of immunization.

In cities like Miami, the popular South Florida city, there have been media cases.

One is that of the television host Juan José Origel, 73, who shared a photo of the moment he received a vaccine against covid-19 in that city.
