• The vaccine roll-out in England has been extended to all over 50s, who are now being invited to book their appointments.

So far it is open to foreigners from countries including Hong Kong, the US, the UK, India, Australia, Iraq, Thailand, Croatia, Israel, Pakistan and the Philippines. Any prospective entrants must have taken either the full two-dose course of a vaccine, or a single dose vaccine at least 14 days before travelling, but the vaccine must be one of China’s domestically-produced shots. Negative Covid- 19 tests and quarantine rules still apply.
