Vaccinated Long Islanders relieved by new CDC travel guidelines

Vaccinated Long Islanders relieved by new CDC travel guidelines”

The CDC said those doses cover over 30% of the United States population.

The CDC did not revise guidance for non-vaccinated people.

People who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can safely travel within the United States and overseas as long as they continue to take precautions like wearing a mask in public, according to new guidance released Friday by the the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Among the fully vaccinated, about 29.2 million people are 65 years of age or older, accounting for 53.5 per cent, CDC data show.

As the vaccination campaign ramps up significantly in the country hardest hit by COVID-19, President Joe Biden promised last week that 90 per cent of adults in America would be eligible to receive the vaccine by April 19.

President Joe Biden has said there will be enough vaccine doses for every adult in the USA by the end of May.

Biden had promised that the U.S. would administer 100 million vaccines by his 100th day in office, but he surpassed that number weeks ahead of his goal.

"We continue to encourage every American to get vaccinated as soon as it's their turn, so we can begin to safely take steps back to our everyday lives", CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said.

Federal health officials on Friday loosened the restrictions - and increased the incentives - for fully-vaccinated Americans to "return to the things we love about life", including leaving on a jet plane.

Those who haven't received their second shots or haven't been immunized for two weeks should especially avoid traveling, according to the CDC.
