Coronavirus Vaccine in Taiwan - May/June 2021

I would prefer that jab #1 and jab #2 be of the same brand, not that it worries me, but it might worry those screening arriving travelers at an airport.

Also if you want to travel, the EU is only accepting pfizer, AZ, and moderna as acceptable vaccines…

You can also get in with a recent negative test or showing covid antibodies.

Not true:

Member States should allow travel into the EU of those people who have received, at least 14 days before arrival, the last recommended dose of a vaccine having received marketing authorisation in the EU. Member States could also extend this to those vaccinated with a vaccine having completed the WHO emergency use listing process. In addition, if Member States decide to waive the requirements to present a negative PCR test and/or to undergo quarantine for vaccinated persons on their territory, they should also waive such requirements for vacccinated travellers from outside the EU.

Up to each member state yo decide, although marketing authorization in the EU and / or WHO emergency use listing should greatly improve chances.

You’re posting in the right thread. But I have some bad news for you and your ladyboy escort.

The popular resort island of Phuket is set to welcome fully vaccinated international visitors quarantine-free starting July 1, three months earlier than the rest of the country.

But that’s good news. I’m over 55 so I reckon I’ll be vaccinated sometime in July.

I’m not far from your grouping. We’ve got 3.5 million 65+ senior citizens ahead of us. And this isn’t counting the various groups in front of them and the people who will use guanxi to jump ahead. It’s still possible but it will take some big, positive news of vaccine imports in the coming weeks. I think it will happen but if it doesn’t, I think July is VERY optimistic.

I got a feeling we is gonna be swimming in vaccines.

They’re people too, and at high risk of spreading Covid. They also go shopping and have families. The more vaccinated, the better. If we count those who were vaxed today, by now we should have over 2% of the population vaxed.
