Great news for those who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Several restrictions for these individuals – after a certain period of time has passed since the final dosage – will be eased from 10 August onwards, including the ability to cross districts and states.
Of course, there are a number of caveats. For one, this only applies to long-distance couples whose significant other resides in a different state or district. Parents are also allowed to do the same to meet their children who are under the age of 18.
Aside from that, fully vaccinated individuals will be allowed to attend certain religious gatherings too. As for travelers who have received their full COVID-19 vaccination, they are allowed to have their mandatory quarantine at home.
It’s worth noting that these ease of restrictions apply to all states regardless of which phase of the National Recovery Plan (NRP) they are in.
For fully vaccinated individuals residing in states that are in the second phase of the NRP, they can enjoy even more freedom. Dine-in will be allowed, non-contact sports are also permitted, and they will be able to cross district without restriction too.
As mentioned, in order to be considered fully vaccinated, a certain amount of time has to pass first. Those who received two-dose COVID-19 vaccines – including Sinovac, Pfizer, and AstraZeneca – are considered full vaccinated after 14 days of getting the second dosage.
In contrast, individuals that have received a single-dose COVID-19 vaccine instead – such as Johnson & Johnson or CanSino – they are considered fully vaccinated after 28 day has passed since the initial dosage.
The government will also ease restrictions for fully vaccinated individuals in the economic sector. However, details on this will only be announced in the near future.
