“COVID-19 vaccines participate in a critical job in the safe resumption of passenger functions, but not all cruise ship operators have announced programs to mandate passenger vaccinations,” the agency added. “As extra folks are totally vaccinated and additional drug therapeutics are offered, the phased technique permitted CDC to include these breakthroughs into scheduling for safe and sound resumption of cruise ship travel. CDC endorses that all port personnel and vacationers [passengers and crew] get a COVID-19 vaccine when a vaccine is obtainable to them.”
