Brits face holiday nightmare as one-shot teens face new BAN sites

BRITS desperate to escape for a well-deserved break face a holiday nightmare in Europe – as teens risk being banned from restaurants and hotels.

The vast majority of young British people between the ages of 12 and 17 receive only one inoculation.

But countries like France, Austria and Germany say only people with two vaccines – or people who can prove they have had the virus before – will be able to use the places of recreation.

This means that adolescents will not be recognized as ‘vaccinated’ by EU countries where young people receive both vaccines.

The Netherlands is expected to be among the countries where single children will be banned from restaurants, pubs, clubs, ski facilities and other attractions.

However, France is currently proposing that unvaccinated tourists – including teenagers – be allowed access to these places if they have a negative Covid test taken within 72 hours of their visit.

Providing proof of a negative test will be an additional burden on families who need a break.

A senior travel industry source told The Telegraph: “Families with teenagers may be able to enter these countries, but they might have problems getting into the places.

“Some countries may allow you to take tests, but others don’t.

“The rules are changing as we speak. It is very difficult to keep track of what you can do where.

“It reflects the difference between what UK medical advisers say and what EU medical advisers say. What should the government be sticking with?

“The government should take a close look at its immunization programs.


“They may be medically adequate, but it also has to be about facilitating a normal life, which includes taking your children abroad to ski or visit the Louvre. Is it still possible? ”

Paul Charles, managing director of travel consultancy The PC Agency, said: “We are seeing other countries introduce tougher rules for those who don’t have two jabs or a recall.

“It is starting to discourage people from traveling to certain countries.

“The UK government’s health policy is restricting families. “

On Thursday, France became the last country to add boosters to its Covid pass for entry to sites, starting with those over 65 from December 15.

Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Croatia and Israel have set validity periods for vaccinations.

This means travelers who were part of the first wave of Britons to be vaccinated will need to have received the booster.
