US announces global vaccination status protocol coming into effect November 8
Effective November 8, the White House has announced that a global vaccination status protocol will be introduced allowing international air travelers to enter the U.S. if they are fully vaccinated and present a negative coronavirus test before boarding a flight to the United States. Travelers will be considered fully vaccinated two weeks after they receive a single-dose vaccine approved/authorized by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) or the World Health Organization (WHO), such as Johnson & Johnson, or any combination of two doses of fully- or emergency-approved/authorized FDA or WHO vaccines. On October 15, the CDC provided additional travel guidance confirming that visitors with mixed vaccines approved by the FDA or WHO will be recognized.
