Update of free movement maps in Europe – Precision vaccinations
The European Centers for Disease Control (ECDC) have released an update color coded cards on the basis of data communicated by the Member States of the European Union (EU) until October 7, 2021.
These maps are released by ECDC every Thursday in support of the Council’s recommendation on a coordinated approach to free movement in Europe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
To limit the spread of beta-coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, the 27 EU member states have adopted various measures that have impacted citizens’ rights to move freely in the EU, such as being required to undergo a quarantine or be tested for coronavirus.
Although the measures aim to protect the health and well-being of citizens, they have had serious consequences for the economy and citizens’ rights.
The right of European citizens to move and reside freely within the EU is an essential engine of its economy.
The countries are marked and classified on these maps according to the criteria of the last amendment of the Council recommendation.
Travelers can find advice for EU citizens on living, traveling, working or finding a job, and visa and immigration facts for non-EU citizens.
In addition, this weekly ECDC report provides an overview of the epidemiological situation of the COVID-19 pandemic and the deployment of the COVID-19 vaccine by country.
In addition, the American CDC updated its COVID-19 travel recommendations by destination on October 4, 2021.
And a list of travel vaccines can be found on this web page. Most travel vaccines should be given at least 1 month before departure to ensure maximum protection.
