It’s been just revealed that the fully vaccinated get more freedoms as we speak in England and Scotland. Check out the latest reports below.

People who are arriving in England or Scotland from abroad will no longer have to take Covid tests if they are fully vaccinated.

The news has been confirmed, and the changes will come in from 4 am on 11 February, in time for the half-term break.

Measures have also been relaxed for unvaccinated travelers 

BBC also noted the fact that rules have also been eased for unvaccinated travelers, who will no longer have to take a day eight test or self-isolate.

But it’s also worth noting that they will still need pre-departure and day two tests.

BBC also noted the following:

“everyone arriving in England and Scotland, regardless of vaccination status, will need to fill in a passenger locator form – although these will be made “easier” to complete, said UK Transport Secretary Grant Shapps.”

In a statement to the House of Commons, Mr. Shapps said the move would save families about £100 on visits abroad, as well as boost the beleaguered travel industry.

“Today I can confirm that our international travel regime will now be liberalised as part our efforts to ensure that 2022 is the year in which restrictions on travel, on lockdowns and limits on people’s lives are firmly placed in the past.”

He continued and said the following: 

“From 4am on February 11, and in time for the half-term break, eligible fully-vaccinated passengers arriving in the UK will no longer have to take a post-arrival lateral flow test.”

Covid in the news

Earlier today, we also revealed that some people out there are not happy following the latest news involving Anthony Fauci and what he had to say about vaccinating kids. Check out the latest reports.

It’s been just revealed that the White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Wednesday that children under four years old would likely receive three doses of the covid vaccine once it’s approved. It’s also important to note the fact that he was referring to the plan as a “three-dose regimen.”
