3 Traveling Healthcare Workers on Getting the COVID-19 Vaccine

February 25, 2021

As of February 25, more than 66 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered in the U.S., and just over 13 percent of the total U.S. population has received at least one dose of the vaccine, according to data from the CDC. It’s the shot we’ve been waiting on for nearly a year, but perhaps no group has been looking forward to the vaccine more than those on the front lines. We spoke with a doctor, a traveling nurse, and a nurse who escorts patients on medical care flights—all of whom consider themselves avid leisure travelers, and recently got vaccinated—about their experience, how getting the shot has impacted their jobs, and how it’s changing the way they think about travel.

With several coronavirus vaccines now in circulation, travelers can’t stop talking about the Yellow Card.

The Yellow Card, or Carte Jaune, is a medical passport issued by the World Health Organization. It’s an official record that some countries require for entrance, and it can document vaccination against diseases ranging from cholera and yellow fever to such childhood illnesses as rubella.

Will there soon be a similar card for covid-19? And will it allow you to travel any sooner?

PHL’s international air service is not only an economic generator for the Greater Philadelphia region (approximately $2 billion annually pre-COVID-19), the airport’s foreign flights are a lifeline for many travelers. When a federal order prohibited PHL from accommodating international flights for six months, fliers were forced to make alternate, often inconvenient plans.
