Ang vaccination card o certificate of quarantine ay makukusidera nang alternatibo sa RT-PCR Test for travel.

Ayon sa pahayag ng Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) ngayong Linggo, July 4, 2021, lahat ng indibidwal, kabilang ang mga senior citizens, na fully vaccinated ay papayagan nang papasukin sa mga lugar na may same quarantine classification (intrazonal) or kahit sa mga lugar with a different quarantine classification (interzonal).

"Ang pagpapakita ng COVID-19 domestic vaccination card na in-issue ng isang lehitimong vaccinating establishment or certificate of quarantine completion na nagpapakita ng holder's vaccination status na in-issue ng Bureau of Quarantine ay sufficient alternatives sa testing requirement before travel or upon arrival na hinihingi ng lokal na pamahalaan," Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said.

"Tama na yung certificate of vaccination at hindi na kinakailangan magpakita ng RT-PCR [test result]," he added.

  • More than or equal to two weeks after having received the second dose in a two-dose vaccine;

  • The vaccine administered to the individual must be included in any of the following:
    • Emergency Use Authorization List or Compassionate Special Permit issued by the Philippine Food and Drug Administration
    • Emergency Use Listing of the World Health Organization

How can fully vaccinated individuals travel?

For intrazonal movement o sa mga babiyahe sa lugar na may "same quarantine classification":

Sa mga senior citizens na may intrazonal movement, iprisinta ang COVID-19 domestic vaccination card na inisyu ng isang lehitimong vaccinating establishment, or certificate of quarantine completion mula sa Bureau of Quarantine. Kailangang nakasaad rito ang vaccination status ng holder.

For interzonal movement o sa mga babiyahe sa lugar na may "different quarantine classification":

Hindi na kailangan ng negative RT-PCR Test result basta maipakita ang COVID-19 vaccination card o certificate of quarantine completion

Kailangan pa ring sumailalim sa health and exposure screening na iniimplementa ng ng LGU (Local Government Unit).

What about quarantines?

Kapag ang fully vaccinated individual ay may kontak sa probable at confirmed COVID-19 patient/s, kelangang sumailalim sa shortened seven-day quarantine period kung asymptomatic. Kung kakailanganin ng RT-PCR testing, kailangang isagawa ito five days after ng last exposure.

There is no need for testing and quarantine sa mga bakunado na asymptomatic at mahigit isang linggo na ang nakalipas mula last exposure niya sa COVID-19 patient/s.
