Europe has a new plan to fix its air traffic problems: require passengers of larger aircraft to pay for their extra fuel. The move is designed to encourage airlines not only cut the number of flights, but also decrease emissions and create more space in airports by reducing excess planes on the ground. However, it’s unclear how these changes will affect travelers’ wallets at home who are already paying through the nose for tickets.
Europe is making changes to its travel restrictions, with the new rules requiring boosters for certain vaccines. The new rules are set to go into effect in July 2019. Read more in detail here: do i have to wait 2 weeks after covid vaccine to travel.
As Europe pushes more restrictions, boosters may be required for travel.

The European Union wants member countries to need booster shots for entrance, and they’re proposing that vaccinations be valid for 9 months after the previous dose. Each nation establishes its own regulations, but bloc-wide direction has sway.
Is this to say that we’ll have to constantly receiving shots in order to travel? No, it isn’t what it means.
But, first and foremost, boosters work. They’re doing well.
Only the two mini-waves — the first half of October and the middle of November — are discussed here. Find the difference…
The elderly, like everyone else, had their rates rise in October. There has been a significant difference in recent weeks.
But what makes me believe that this is a case of boosters rather than bad behavior? Well… pic.twitter.com/IB9Qhlhqhe

Boosters should be considered third doses. Perhaps the first two mRNA vaccine doses would have been better spaced out (3 weeks between Pfizer doses is absurd; this wasn’t a science-based dosage schedule, but rather a strategy to get through trials rapidly in a pandemic and get injections in arms).
Several immunizations need three doses. This isn’t unheard of. For two reasons, a third shot may be sufficient.
- After the third injection, our systems may establish a stronger immunological memory.
- If a fourth injection is required, the virus’s prevalence may have decreased to the point where it is no longer necessary.
Flu vaccinations are given once a year, although they do not last that long. They last around six months, and flu injections have a substantially lower efficiency than the Covid-19 vaccines created in the United States and Europe. Flu viruses change at a far faster rate than SARS-CoV-2. Antibodies fade fast, so even if the vaccine is well-matched to circulating viruses, it won’t stay long. We don’t get it every six months, but rather in the months leading up to flu season.
In Israel and other countries that vaccinated early and are adopting a cautious approach to the virus and travel, fourth doses may be required. However, they are unlikely to be necessary everywhere. And the necessity might be phased away at some time, presumably later than any research suggests, since no politician wants to be responsible for outbreaks caused by relaxing restrictions on immigrants ‘too soon.’
