US to accept mixed doses of Corona vaccines from international travellers

The US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has said that it will accept mixed-dose Corona virus vaccines from international travellers, a boost to travelers from Canada and other places. The CDC said, last week that it would accept any vaccine authorized for use by US regulators or the World Health Organization. A CDC Spokesperson said, while the CDC has not recommended mixing types of vaccine in a primary series, they recognize that this is increasingly common in other countries so should be accepted for the interpretation of vaccine records.

The White House said yesterday, the new vaccine requirements for foreign nationals traveling to the United States will begin November 8 for visitors crossing at land borders as well as international air travelers. Representative Brian Higgins, a New York Democrat representing a district along the Canadian border, had on Friday asked the CDC if it would accept the mixed vaccine doses noting nearly four million Canadians have received mixed doses of the available mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.
