Could We Set Up Covid-19 Vaccine Tourism?

Consider.

  • We are a country, which lots of people want to visit for business and/or tourism.
  • We have got lots of Covid-19 vaccine.
  • It appears that the one-shot Janssen vaccine will come on stream soon from the factory on Teesside.
  • We have accurate methods of detecting, if people have the virus.

I also think that in a few weeks time, it might be possible to check, that an incoming tourist from many countries, is totally free of the virus.

So could we operate a system, where incoming passengers from safe countries, go through a procedure similar to this?

  • They are tested for Covid-19 before departure and aren’t allowed to fly after a positive test. This is the current procedure.
  • On arrival in the UK, they go to a hotel for a night.
  • On arrival at the hotel, they are tested for Covid-19.
  • If the test is positive, they go straight back in the morning.
  • They are then vaccinated with the Janssen vaccine.

After appropriate checks, they are allowed to leave in the morning.

  • Those just coming for the vaccination could go straight back from where they came from.
  • Those coming for business or tourism, would follow the normal procedure.

I’m certain, that a procedure could be developed, that would be approved by the UK Government.

It would be ideal for a low-cost airline, who could set it up with a local hotel.

Travelling From Countries On The Banned List

Those entering from countries On The banned list would out of courtesy be offered a free vaccine.

  1. Great minds think alike. I found your idea while searching for a country where my family and I can vacation and get vaccinated. So, we get vaccinated (we’ll happily pay for it), have a lovely vacation, and leave behind tourism revenue. So long as we’re not taking vaccine from any Briton who wants it, everybody wins.

    • Obviously, it needs to be setup and agreed with government, but I’m certain there would be a procedure there, which would be acceptable to all.

      It would also probably be best, when the museums and shops were fully open.

      Theatre would be more difficult, but so many UK cities are good places to visit in the spring or summer.

      Last summer, I used the trains a lot and they were safe. Remember, that most English cities are rarely more than two hours apart.

      As most long-distance trains have some seats of four to a table, they would be ideal for a family with two children.
