UK to add China's Sinovac, Sinopharm to approved vaccine list from Nov 22

The British government said it would recognize COVID-19 vaccines on the World Health Organization's Emergency Use Listing later this month, adding China's Sinovac and Sinopharm Beijing vaccines to the country's approved list of vaccines for inbound travelers.
 

The change, which will come into force from Nov. 22, means travelers who have received these two jabs will be considered fully vaccinated in Britain.
 

Passengers arriving in Britain after having been fully vaccinated and having received their vaccine certificate from one of more than 135 approved countries and territories are no longer required to take a pre-departure test, a day-eight test or self-isolate upon arrival.
 

Those who have proof of vaccination from a country or territory that is not on the list, or with a vaccine that is not listed, must follow the rules for people who do not qualify as fully vaccinated.
 

The approved vaccines list currently includes Pfizer/BioNTech, Oxford AstraZeneca (including Covishield), Moderna and Janssen (J&J).
 

Additionally, the British government has said that, from Nov. 22, all under-18s traveling to England will be treated as fully vaccinated at the border and will be exempt from self-isolation requirements on arrival, day-eight testing and pre-departure testing.
 

They will only be required to take a post-arrival test and a confirmatory free PCR test if they test positive.
 

英国11月22日起承认中国国药、科兴新冠疫苗,完全接种者入境免隔离

英国政府宣布,将从11月22日起承认世卫组织的新冠疫苗紧急使用清单,其中包括中国国药、科兴疫苗与印度国产Covaxin疫苗。已完全接种清单中疫苗的旅客抵达英国时无需接受隔离。
 

英国运输部称,已完全接种获批疫苗并取得接种证书的个人,无需在出发前和第8天接受核酸检测,也无需在抵达英国时自我隔离,只需要在抵达英国后的第二天接受横向流动测试。
