MOSCOW, 3 March (BelTA) – The validity of COVID-19 immunity certificates can be limited to six months in the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU). This is envisaged in the draft public health recommendations for resuming passenger air travel. These draft recommendations were put out for public debate on the EAEU legal portal, Iya Malkina, Aide to the Chairman of the Board of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), told the media on 3 March, BelTA has learned.
The EEC representative noted that the draft recommendations are based on public health guidelines of the EAEU states. The document can be applied both for travelers crossing the customs border of the Eurasian Economic Union and for those who travel within the EAEU.
Speaking about immunity certificates, Iya Malkina cited the EAEU researchers who say that levels of protective antibodies in people who recovered from COVID-19 or who got a vaccine might start waning after six months. Therefore, an immunity certificate should be issued no earlier than six months before travel, Iya Malkina added.
