Proof of vaccination expanded in USA to include AstraZeneca-October 9, 2021

The USA has moved to accept all WHO-approved vaccinations for international visitors:

The reality was, however, that most requests for proof of vaccination did not discriminate against international visitors, even if any ID presented (if requested) was clearly issued by a foreign government, especially if they were made for a visual check of a card; most look similar.

For those of us who’re not US citizens moving through the USA, there was the possibility that we’d bump into the wall made by the fact that AstraZeneca (AZ) vaccines are not yet approved for use in the USA, though they are approved in most other countries. So, it’s good to know that the wrinkle has been removed.

We found out the wrinkle, recently, when trying to arrange a ‘CLEAR’) digital vaccine pass, but AZ was not on the list in the app. A little ‘tweak’ got past that. It’ll be interesting to check in coming days whether that’s changed. Meantime, we’re accepted in the CLEAR system and will move forward knowing that our ‘tweak’ is no longer needed.
