Travellers vaccinated with Covaxin can enter US from November 8
The United States has given a green light to travellers vaccinated with Bharat Biotech’s Covaxin to enter the country. The revised rules will come into effect from November 8, when the US is all set to open its borders to vaccinated foreign travellers.
“CDC’s travel guidance applies to Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved/authorised and World Health Organisation (WHO) Emergency Use Listing (EUL) vaccines and encompasses any new vaccines that may be added to either of those lists over time,” said US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) press officer Scott Pauley.
The new US travel rules will also accept travellers who are fully vaccinated with Pfizer-BioNTech, Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, Oxford-AstraZeneca, Covishield, Sinopharm and Sinovac Covid-19 vaccines. (Source India Today)
