Vaccinated American Tourists Will Be Allowed in Europe

2 min read

Europe will start welcoming American tourists who can show they are fully vaccinated, currently 29% of the US population. The American government has provided at least one dose of Covid vaccine to 42.2% of its population. Some 53.6% of American adults have had at least one jab, and the percentage for senior Americans is 81.5%.

It can be hoped this is a incentive for more Americans to get fully vaccinated soon. It is a message that vaccinations are the route back to normalcy.

BRUSSELS — American tourists who have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19 will be able to visit the European Union over the summer, the head of the bloc’s executive body said in an interview with The New York Times on Sunday, more than a year after shutting down nonessential travel from most countries to limit the spread of the coronavirus.

The fast pace of vaccination in the United States, and advanced talks between authorities there and the European Union over how to make vaccine certificates acceptable as proof of immunity for visitors, will enable the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union, to recommend a switch in policy that could see trans-Atlantic leisure travel restored.

Biden Administration Will Give Major Assistance to India in Producing Vaccines Amid Devastating Covid Upsurge

The US will immediately make available raw materials needed to produce Covishield, the Indian brand name for the AstraZeneca-University of Oxford vaccine, as well as personal protective equipment, testing kits, drugs, and ventilators, Emily Horne, a spokesperson for the US National Security Council, said in a statement Sunday.

The US will also fund an expansion of one of India's leading vaccine manufacturers, BioE. Money from the US Development Finance Corporation will allow BioE to produce 1 billion doses of coronavirus vaccine by the end of 2022, Horne said.

Horne's statement followed a Sunday call between US National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan and Ajit Doval, the top national security advisors for India. The readout did not specify how much raw materials, diagnostics, therapeutics, and other medical equipment will be provided by the US' action.

“I think that’s going to be something that is up for active consideration,” Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” while cautioning that he didn’t “want to be speaking for policy right now.”

The U.S. stockpile of AstraZeneca shots reached more than 20 million doses earlier this month and has grown since then, prompting persistent calls by doctors to donate the shots to other countries that are way behind the U.S. in their vaccination efforts.
