If You Are Fully Vaccinated

Fully vaccinated means that you have had a complete course of an approved vaccine at least 14 days before you arrive in England. The day you had your final dose does not count as one of the 14 days. The vaccine must be administered under either:

  • the UK vaccination programme
  • the United Nations vaccine programme for staff and volunteers
  • an overseas vaccination programme with an approved proof of vaccination for travel to the UK

You can check whether your vaccine is approved here.

Note: persons who have been vaccinated in the Cayman Islands can evidence their proof of vaccination through:

  • digital vaccine certificate, via the MyHSA portal or mobile app (printing this record is recommended)
  • physical vaccine certificate provided by HSA

If you are not fully vaccinated, the fully vaccinated rules apply if you:

  • are under 18 and resident in the United Kingdom  or one of the countries or territories with approved proof of vaccination
  • are taking part in an approved COVID-19 vaccine trial in the United Kingdom or United States, or a phase 2 or 3 vaccine trial that is regulated by the EMA or SRA
  • cannot have a COVID-19 vaccination for a medical reason which has been approved by a clinician under the new medical exemptions process, and you are resident in England.
