Looks like it’s only travellers from the EU. Darn.For those who can't wait to get out of this country or in desperate need of a vacation, here's your chance ... to visit Italy who's welcoming all tourists with open arms as early as May 2021:
Italy will reopen for tourists in mid-May, Prime Minister Draghi said
Not sure if you can return without going into quarantine hotel though.
So not excluding the AZ, then.The proposals, published by the European Commission, advised that arrivals must have been inoculated 14 days before arrival with a vaccine from its approved list, including BioNTech/Pfizer, Oxford University/AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson and Moderna.
The way I read it is for people that received a vaccine approved for use in the EU. They may change obviously as all the Russian & Chinese will be excluded.So not excluding the AZ, then.
My point was just that you have the AZ in your list of approved ones, haha. You might have overlooked it because they called it Oxford/AstraZeneca but it's the same one.The way I read it is for people that received a vaccine approved for use in the EU. They may change obviously as all the Russian & Chinese will be excluded.
Fwiw I have no intention of ever hitting up Europe again...back to the Baja is my Shangri-La...no BS vaccine or testing requirements, just great fish tacos.
Ok. Thanks. I thought you meant people fully vaccinated with AZ would not be eligible for the passport.He was quoted in the G&M yesterday while commenting on joining the EU plan for covid passports, if that's what you are asking. I link the article if I come on it again.
After nearly a year of closed borders, the European Union proposes opening up to fully vaccinated global travelers, a move that should help revive tourism industry fortunes.www.cnn.com

Got it although its same article, just different online source...
Canada may require international travellers to prove they were vaccinated against COVID−19 before they can enter the country, Prime Minister Jus.www.kelownanow.com
Trudeau said Canadians could begin travelling outside the country again by summer.
The 95% number was by press release which means nothing. Having had the virus offers more immunity then the genetic cocktails.Not sure why people would want to restrict travel for fully vaccinated Mrna vaccinated travellers.. These folks are fully protected at a level of 97% and for the other 3% they have very mild cases of covid which is unlikely to be a transmitter. I think people in Canada would be dancing in the streets in celebration if covid was reduced by 97%. Nothing in life is risk free. Reducing covid by 97% is about as good as one can expect. It is becoming clear that the Mnra vaccines are protective against all of the mutants. The Houston Methodist study and the Israeli experience is pretty strong. Health Canada is a poor source as the AG pointed out. They had an excellent opportunity over the past 4 months to track many thousands of fully vaccinated incoming travellers and they failed to that. I have little confidence in that agency. They have been foot draggers par excellence.
Actually, also Sputnik V and Sinovax should be included, as many Eastern European EU countries like Hungary, Slovakia are using them... or they should close border like during Cold WARThat was also my impression ! I got worried for a minute as my wife got AZ... It would be stupid not to include AZ as majority of UK got it.
