Yes, those who had one-shot J&J (Janssen) vaccine is eligible for a booster 3 months after. You will get Phizer/BioNTec vaccine.

Not sure where exactly you are in Valencia but you can just turn up at the mobile vaccination point at the Marathon exhibition in Cuidad de las Ciences on Friday 3rd December from 10-14 and 16 to 20 and Saturday 4th 10 to 14 only. Yesterday they did them at the bullring and IKEA. I chose IKEA, a bad move as it took nearly 3 hours whereas the bullring, a 5 minute walk from home, had no queue at all.

Conditions for this are that you're over 60 or in the essentials list or had the Janssen jab. There's no appointment system for walk-ins so take a book just in case. Given the current news, I'd say it's worth the effort to avoid being stranded if you travel or want to travel.

UK PCR fun begins again unless you're flying in from Ireland.

From 4am Tuesday, even if you're vaccinated, you need to have a PCR test after arriving in the UK which you have to book in advance before flying. It can be taken on days 0, 1, or 2 and you have to self-isolate until you get a negative result.

How the return of PCR tests and self-isolation for international travel will work

Choose your test provider wisely after the problems from last time.

On the 1st of December, Spain will change the restrictions for travellers from the UK from a vaccination certificate or a negative PCR test to just a vaccination certificate.

Big problem is that a large number of people will be heading to UK all at same time meaning the labs will struggle to process the results over Christmas- not good if you have to isolate until those results come through. No doubt Ryanair will not allow money back or free flight change despite the fact that the new requirements mean extra expense for many. Big thing will be Spain's response- surely the cant just let anyone enter without any recent test???

Their website has an option which includes some kind of insurance which returns ticket money, but costs 80 euros per flight... so, yeah, what's the point?

I updated the post with what Spain's doing... they've decided being vaccinated is more important than a negative test.

And this gives what protection???

Jabbed or not you can still catch Covid and transmit it..

Testing is the ONLY way to ensure the 300 plus others on the plane don't have it...

I put this on another forum yesterday as it proves testing is more important than just a paper to say you have been done.

As an aside. My son has now tested positive (he has to do regular tests for work), this was 4 days ago as he works shifts and is due back to work tomorrow.
HE HAS NO SYMPTONS.. at all, nothing not even a sniff. And his second jab was in September.
So if he hadn't been tested he would now be merrily sharing the virus...
But he has a cert so thats Ok...

Nope don't think so...


And even better he has now taken a full PCR test and its come back POSITIVE and he still has no symptoms.
He had a video call with his doctor last night and he said that, my son is not the first case he has dealt with where there are no symptons..

So you can keep your bit of paper, I will only go out when I need to and will wear a mask if anyone else is around, even if they are across the road..

And with the 'new' variant who knows the whole thing may be starting again..

Yes we're wondering how we'll get ours. We got our first two in Canada and now have moved to Peniscola until new year. We're not due a booster until January. Not quite sure how it will work.

Lovin Spain BTW!

I'd be reticent to trust what a chair says. A sofa though may add more weight.

Still doesn't answer the issue of allowing vaccinated but untested people to access all areas....otherwise it will still be spread like wildfire...
Spain is allowing vaccinated only in and the Uk is now saying you need a test when you arrive. (but as you may have already infected 300 others) Cart before Horse springs to mind...

What is needed is a test that can be performed as you arrive at the airport, you then wait in a booth (as a family if you are travelling together) until you get the all clear.
In my uneducated view, this alone would slow the spread. But what do I know???

In fact if what you have reported is the case that the variant has milder symptoms then a tested non vaccinated person is a better friend than some Ive met lately with the 'Ive had me jabs, Im safe so its off to LA for the weekend' (oh that is aimed at my wife's cousin who has just done this....) No test but fully vaccinated....

Its a case of Im alright jack, sod the rest of you....

In Andalucia, my husband had his booster on a Monday afternoon and downloaded his updated EU vaccination certificate, showing the third dose, the following morning.
