WHO recommends not to require vaccination for international travel

An emergency committee of the World Health Organization (WHO) is not yet recommending that international travelers be required to prove they are vaccinated against coronavirus.

The recommendations explain that the impact of vaccines on reducing transmission has not yet been established and the availability of the drugs is limited.

The committee added that even if a person has been vaccinated and confirmed it, he should still observe epidemiological safety measures when traveling abroad.

Earlier, on Thursday, January 14, Oleg Benes, a senior specialist in the immunization division of the WHO European Office, said that the issue of vaccination passports for travelers is on the agenda of the WHO Emergency Committee of International Health Regulations on coronavirus.
