So, what does fully vaccinated mean?
- Once a person has received their second dose series (Pfizer or Moderna vaccine) and waited two weeks, they are considered fully vaccinated.
- Once a person has received their single dose (Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine) and waited two weeks, they are considered fully vaccinated.
- For people who have a weak immune system due to taking medication or a condition, getting the vaccine doesn’t mean you are fully vaccinated. Talk with your healthcare provider to get more information.
International Travel Restrictions:
Just because one country allows travel doesn’t mean another does. Other countries are being hit hard by COVID-19 and therefore, those countries will have far more restrictions. Again, do your homework to get yourself prepared so you can face any restrictions head-on. Check with your destination’s Office of Foreign Affairs or Ministry of Health of the US Department of State to find out more information.
Many destinations around the world are still having people quarantine before and after travel. Most of the globe is. Do some research to see if your destination is requiring masks and quarantine because it saves a lot of headache and worry. Travel safely!
