Antigua & Barbuda approve mixed vaccines for visitors

JOHN’S, ANTIGUA — Travellers who’ve received mixed doses of COVID-19 vaccines are now approved for entry in Antigua & Barbuda.

The new guideline, announced by the Government of Antigua & Barbuda’s National Covid-19 Vaccination Technical Working Group, applies to visitors who have received a dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine with either Moderna or Pfizer vaccines, or a combination of Moderna and Pfizer.

The destination is already welcoming fully vaccinated travellers who have received both doses of a World Health Organization (WHO) approved two-dose COVID-19 vaccine.

“We are looking forward to welcoming all fully vaccinated Canadians to Antigua & Barbuda under these new and approved guidelines,” said Colin James, CEO of the Antigua & Barbuda Tourism Authority.

Visitors to the islands will be expected to observe local travel protocols, which the government last updated on July 23, 2021. The full list of protocols can be viewed here.

Earlier this month, Barbados updated its entry requirements to allow fully vaccinated mixed-dose travellers to enter the country, reversing its original stance against mixed vaccines. Jamaica is also in support of mixing vaccines for travellers.
