The Government of Canada announced that CoronaVac vaccine, by Sinovac (China), will be approved for travelers entering Canada as fully vaccinated, no quarantine required, from November 30th.

 Therefore, everyone who got two shots of one these vaccines against Covid-19 will be considered fully vaccinated: Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca, Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) and Sinovac one, as well as the Chinese Beijing/Sinopharm and Indian Covaxin. A combination of doses between two of these vaccines will also be accepted.

Remember that to be considered fully vaccinated and to be eligible to enter Canada without a mandatory quarantine is necessary to have taken two shots, or Jansen/J&J’s one dose, at least 14 days from the day of arriving in Canada.

 However, it is important to be aware that the PCR molecular test made until 72 hours before boarding keeps being required by the Canadian Government to have the entrance authorized, even for those who are fully vaccinated.
