A vaccinated person who wants to keep his European corona travel card must get a booster shot after nine months, according to the European Commission. The committee will recommend this to EU countries today, according to Bloomberg news agency.
Several member states of the European Union have now announced that from now on some groups of vaccinated persons will only be considered fully vaccinated after a booster. As a result, difficulties and confusion for travelers lurk again. The committee urges the same rules to be followed.
EU countries should continue to accept inoculation with the four vaccines approved by the European regulator, Bloomberg said in a document from the commission. These are the resources of Pfizer and Moderna, but also those of AstraZeneca and Janssen. From January 10, this should also apply to travelers who have been injected with a vaccine that has been provisionally approved by the World Health Organization.
The EU would also no longer designate countries outside the union as safe countries, with free access for travelers. According to Bloomberg, anyone who wants to enter the EU should now show that they do not pose a risk of infection. Travelers must prove themselves with a corona pass that they are protected, for example because they have been vaccinated. This is possible with a European corona certificate or with one of the proofs that the EU now also accepts, such as the British one.
In addition, anyone who has received a Russian or Chinese vaccine or any other drug that has the preliminary blessing of the World Health Organization should take a test. This also applies to people who have been cured of the virus.
