The claim: Sex offenders don’t have to carry cards because it ‘violates their privacy’
President Joe Biden announced COVID-19 vaccine requirements Sept. 9 for federal workers and companies with more than 100 employees. That means millions of Americans may soon have to prove they’ve received the shot.
A widespread claim on social media attempts to make a point by comparing that potential requirement to those for sex offenders.
“There are 800,000 registered sex offenders in the U.S. and they don’t carry a card because it ‘violates their privacy,'” reads text in a Sept. 13 Instagram post. “Keep that in mind.”
