Half-term vacationers were struck with another roadblock yesterday when France banned travelers who had been double-jabbed nine months or earlier from entering the country.

If you had your second dose around May of last year, you’ll need a booster if you plan to go skiing or on a city vacation to Paris during the half-term break.

It comes as Spain intends to deny EU proposals to acknowledge COVID-19 recovery certificates for UK immigrants, which would have made entry simpler.

This might be for moral purposes, such as visiting a sick relative, but not during the holidays.

According to the warning churned out to customers yesterday regarding the prohibition of certain passengers, Eurostat services posted

If you had your full vaccination course 9 months ago or more, and you haven’t had a COVID-19 vaccine booster, you must follow the rules for unvaccinated passengers to enter France.

The United Kingdom has yet to establish a timeframe for when second jabs must be used for travel.

However, the prerequisite for a booster to enjoy test-free UK returns might come into operation at the end of this month.

On February 11, those who have been adequately vaccinated, which now includes two jabs, will no longer be required to take a travel test.

Asides from France, holidays to Spain are also in jeopardy, with the nation likely to reject EU plans that would have authorized unvaccinated individuals or those who had only had one dose of the vaccine to travel if they had healed from COVID-19 during the past 180 days.

Authorities in Madrid are poised to oppose the measure, which will restrict anybody over the age of 12 from entering the border until they’ve been properly vaccinated.

The policy will have the greatest influence on youngsters as the NHS just started administering second vaccinations to over-12s in late December.

Children who become infected with COVID-19 after undergoing their first vaccination must wait another 12 weeks before receiving a second.
