UK GOVERNMENT ACCEPTS TRNC VACCINATIONS

Since 10th January 2022 anyone fully vaccinated in the TRNC can enter the UK without the need to take a Day-2 and Day-8 PCR test.

The requirement now is to pre-purchase a Lateral Flow test prior to arrival in the UK to be taken in the first TWO days.  You DO NOT have to self-isolate until the results are confirmed but should continue to test for health reasons. 

SUMMARY OF COVID-19 DECISIONS

The Higher Committee for Infectious Diseases on Friday updated the Covid-19 measures and restrictions in place.

According to the latest decisions, fully vaccinated persons who have come into direct contact with an individual who has tested positive for Covid-19 will be allowed to resume their daily activities without the need to isolate by wearing a face mask.

POSITIVE PCR/ANTIGEN TEST PROCEDURE

We have finally received confirmation from the TRNC Health Ministry that should you arrive back from the United Kingdom via the Republic of Cyprus,and as an example after arriving in the TRNC receive a text message from the Republic of Cyprus advising you that you have positive PCR test upon arrival ateither Larnaca or Paphos, or you subsequently test positive while in the TRNC OR at any time, the procedure that you should follow is,

VACCINATION EXPIRY/ADAPASS CANCELLATION

Vaccines that are given within the TRNC have a ‘shelf life’ and once this has expired you will be classified as unvaccinated and your AdaPass cancelled.

For Sinovac and Johnson and Johnson this is THREE months after completion of your course (a single dose in the case of Johnson and Johnson)

For Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Moderna this is SIX months after completion of the course.

If your AdaPass is cancelled you will be required to undergo a complete course of vaccines (a single dose in the case of Johnson and Johnson) before you will be able to reapply.

BOOSTER INJECTIONS

The Government have advised anyone who received the Sinovac vaccine that as a 3-month period has elapsed they are now able to attend any of the District State Hospitals vaccination locations to been given their booster injection.  Generally this is the Pfizer BioNtech vaccine.

Should you have been vaccinated with the Pfizer or Astra Zeneca vaccines you need not take the booster for a period of 9 - 12 months.

ADDITIONAL BOOSTER INJECTIONS

It is recommended that the second booster injections are taken three months after completion of your initial vaccinations. (Six months if your were vaccinated with Pfizer, AstraZeneca or Moderna).

Furthermore as of January 31st, 2022, anyone over the age of 50 years and above who have passed 3 months after the previous dose vaccination, will be able to get their next booster vaccine

The immunisation of this age group continues five days a week in hospitals of Lefkosa Dr. Burhan Nalbantoglu, Girne Akçiçek, Cengiz Topel and Magusa.

As of 31st January, Dr. Burhan Nalbantoglu State Hospital children's vaccinations will also be done between 08.00-14.00 hours like other three state hospitals.
