EU to open borders for vaccinated against coronavirus

2 months ago

European Union countries will accept tourists vaccinated against coronavirus vaccine, which was certified by EU regulator. This was announced by the head of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, in an interview with The New York Times.

“One thing is clear: all 27 EU member states will unconditionally accept all those vaccinated with preparations approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA – ed.),” said the EC head.

However, she did not specify what will be the policy of the community in relation to those tourists who are vaccinated with other drugs.

At the same time, von der Leyen recalled that the return to free travel also depends on the epidemiological situation in the region.

It should be noted that so far the EMA has approved such vaccines against coronavirus as the American-German Pfizer/BioNTech, British-Swedish AstraZeneca and American Moderna and Johnson & Johnson.

Recall that as of April 24, 1,002,938,540 have been vaccinated against coronavirus in 207 countries worldwide.
