Antigua to allow entry for visitors with mixed vaccine doses
St John’s – Travellers who have received mixed doses of coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines are now approved for entry to the twin-island nation.
The new guideline, announced by the Government of Antigua & Barbuda’s National COVID-19 Vaccination Technical Working Group, applies to visitors who have received a dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine with either Moderna or Pfizer vaccines, or a combination of Moderna and Pfizer.
The destination is already welcoming fully-vaccinated travellers who have received both doses of a World Health Organisation (WHO) approved two-dose COVID-19 vaccine.
“We are looking forward to welcoming all fully vaccinated Canadians to Antigua & Barbuda under these new and approved guidelines,” said Colin James, CEO of the Antigua & Barbuda Tourism Authority.
Earlier this month, Barbados updated its entry requirements to allow fully vaccinated mixed-dose travellers to enter the country, reversing its original stance against mixed vaccines.
Jamaica has also supported mixing vaccines for travellers. (CMC)
