In Case of Emergency regarding CDC Vaccine Card Acceptance
In the event that you attend a facility or restaurant that DOES NOT recognize your CDC vaccination card, the official ordinance from the Italian Ministry of Health attached here will help suffice as a replacement. This ordinance declares the CDC vaccine card as a valid and approved replacement for the EU COVID-19 Green Pass.
