COVID-19: US states making it easy for Canadians to get vaccinated, experts say

A growing number of United States border towns are dolling out COVID-19 vaccines to Canadians who are desperately trying to get a shot amid a surging third wave.

And it’s not just border towns that are giving away leftover vaccines. Other U.S. states, like Ohio and Indiana, don’t require proof of citizenship for inoculations, meaning Canadians can hop on a plane and get a shot.

But for U.S. states that do require proof of residency, Canadians may still be able to get vaccinated anyway, according to Len Saunders, an immigration lawyer based out of Blaine, Wash.

“They really don’t care in Washington state or in most of the U.S. what the person’s status is. As long as you’re in the U.S., you can just pop by any pharmacy if they have extra doses and get vaccinated,” Saunders said.
