Task Force Mulling ‘Fully Vaccinated’ Mandate For Travel To Guyana

by Natasha Smith-Thomas


With the United States (US) and other countries requesting that international travellers be fully immunised before entry, Minister of Health, Dr. Frank Anthony said Guyana too, will soon set out that mandate for persons wishing to visit here.

He said the National Covid-19 Task force is currently working to change the definition of ‘vaccinated’ in Guyana, to mean fully vaccinated, which will require a person to have both doses of a Covid-19 vaccine.

“The task force here, we are considering, because our definition of vaccinated was that if you got one dose of your vaccine and the task force is currently examining, whether or not to implement fully vaccinated or what measures to take, so we will see when those orders come out whether those changes would have been made,” Dr. Anthony said during his daily Covid-19 update on Thursday.

He said ‘fully vaccinated’ is what countries are going to accept. “If you need to travel outside of Guyana, let’s say you are going to the United States from the 8th of November, you have to be fully vaccinated, meaning that you have to get both doses of the vaccine.”
