Extend travel exemptions for fully vaccinated to those receiving mixed vaccines
The Joint Committee on Vaccines and Immunisation (JCVI) allows mixed vaccine schedules for NHS patients but illogically HMG refuses to recognise these for foreign nationals travelling to the UK. The UK Government should end the discriminatory and illogical approach to recognising covid vaccination.
The HMG advisory committee the JCVI regards a number of covid vaccine regimes to count as full vaccination for NHS patients vaccinated in the UK, these include mixed covid vaccine schedules: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-vaccination-blood-clotting-information-for-healthcare-professionals/information-for-healthcare-professionals-on-blood-clotting-following-covid-19-vaccination
HMG refuses to recognise the same mixed covid vaccine schedules for people travelling from outside the UK.
The JCVI recognises it, the UK research shows it works, so please acknowledge for ALL visitors too.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
