Founder and Managing Partner Harry Nelson was interviewed by CNBC regarding loosening entry requirements for vaccinated travelers as there is a growing list of countries reducing or eliminating quarantine and Covid-19 testing requirements for those who have been fully vaccinated while keeping restrictions in place for those who haven’t.
From the interview:
Phuket, Thailand, and Greece have indicated less restrictive vaccine-based protocols are in the works.
Such policies make “perfect sense,” said Harry Nelson, the founder of Los Angeles-based health care law firm Nelson Hardiman.
“My anticipation is that this will eventually be the rule in the vast majority of countries and that, at some point in the future … we will see some countries shift to a vaccination requirement,” he said.
Are these policies fair? No, said Nelson, “but the complaints about fairness are, in my view, ridiculous.”
He cited long-standing precedents for countries imposing proof of vaccinations for visitor entry, particularly with yeIlow fever. He said that the ongoing threat of Covid-19 variants makes it “fully reasonable for countries to impose vaccination requirements.”
“Fair is a concept that is irrelevant when it comes to controlling a highly infectious virus that is transmitted around the world,” he said.
