Default Filter VCF using external Allele Frequency

Hello,
I would like to filter large multi-sample VCFs using allele frequencies obtained from VCFs or tab files from the EVS and 1000G datasets.

I know that GATK and VCFtools can filter for allele freqs within a VCF, but they don't seem to offer a method to remove variants with a set frequency from an external source such as EVS or 1000G.

Is there a tool/command to do this without having to create a list of variants from the databases and specifically remove them?

Thanks
