On 12 June 2022 the CDC ended its requirement that travelers show a negative COVID-19 test result or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 before boarding a flight to the United States. This means that starting at 12:01AM ET on June 12, 2022, the United States does not require air passengers to get tested and show their COVID-19 test result or documentation of recovery from COVID-19 prior to boarding a flight to the U.S. Note: travelers should continue to check if the country from which they fly to the US has its own testing requirements.
MDG Symptomatic Appointments Beginning 4 April
Beginning 4 April, 31 MDG will change their appointment procedures for patients with COVID-like symptoms. Individuals who have NOT been a close contact of a COVID-19 positive person in the last 10 days, may be seen in the MDG for an appointment. They must show proof of a negative at-home COVID-19 test performed on the same day as the scheduled appointment.
Patients with COVID-like symptoms who are a close contact of a positive person must schedule a test through the MDG before they can be seen.
Patients who would like to be tested by the MDG and are not a close contact, may still schedule a test through the appointment line.
When am I considered fully vaccinated?
In Italy, you are considered fully vaccinated if you meet any of the following criteria:
- If you take a vaccination that requires two shots (such as Pfizer or Moderna), then you are considered to be fully vaccinated 14 days after you receive the second shot.
- If you take a vaccination that requires only one shot (such as Johnson & Johnson), then you are considered to be fully vaccinated 14 days after you receive that shot.
- If you received a booster following your original vaccination, then you are considered fully vaccinated.
Does my vaccination expire?
First, please note boosters do not expire. Once you receive a booster, it is considered valid within Italy without time limitation.
If you have not received a booster, then to enter Italy without quarantine you must have been fully vaccinated within the last 9 months OR have proof of recovery within the last 6 months OR have a negative COVID test.
Other countries may have different requirements for entry and access to facilities and services.
