The US accepts international tourists for vaccination combined with vaccines

In a move to encourage tourists to come to the US, on October 15, the country's Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said that international travelers received a combination of vaccines against COVID-19 caused by COVID-19. Different manufacturers are still allowed to enter the US.

A CDC spokesperson said: “While CDC does not recommend combining different vaccines in the vaccination routine, we recognize that this is increasingly common in other countries, due to that should be recognized in the vaccine record.” The US CDC also notes that these vaccines must be those approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

The above information comes in the context that earlier on the same day, the US Government announced it would lift travel restrictions for foreigners who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Accordingly, people from more than 30 countries on the US "green list" will be allowed to enter the country through air and land border gates from November 8.

Since March 2020, the US has restricted visitors from entering the country, unless absolutely necessary, to prevent the risk of spreading the COVID-19 epidemic. On September 20, the White House announced that the US would lift restrictions on visitors from 33 countries, including China, India, Brazil and most European countries, from early November. At that time, the US did not specify a specific time to implement this decision. At that time, the White House also announced that it would require foreigners entering from every country in the world to have a certificate of full vaccination. Non-US citizens entering by air will be required to have vaccination confirmation before boarding and must have tested negative for COVID-19. Foreign visitors who enter by land do not need to have a negative test result.
