CDC Amends Entry Requirements for Non-US Citizens
Signs that the restrictions may be extended again?
On Thursday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated its requirement for Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination for Air Passengers. These requirement are for non-US citizen, non-immigrant passengers arriving from a foreign country to the US by air.
Now that the Covid emergency has officially been declared over in the US, did you think the amendment would be to allow unvaccinated visitors into the country? Think again.
The updated document still requires that you show proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before you travel to the US from another country.
However, under the amendments, you are now considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after your dose of an accepted single-dose vaccine. This is because the CDC is including the bivalent shot. But this is only if you have received that dose on or after 16 August. Following The Science™, if you received one dose of a single-dose vaccine before that date, you are not considered vaccinated.
Furthermore, a person who has received only one dose of an accepted 2-dose series before this date and has recovered from COVID-19 is not considered fully vaccinated for travel to the US.
The madness continues.
As it stands, the vaccination requirements are meant to expire on 11 May but then they were meant to expire on 11 April and at the last minute they were extended. Is this CDC update an indication that the requirements will be extended again?
